PALATINE—State Representative Tom Morrison (R-Palatine) recently held a successful senior fair in partnership with the Palatine Township Senior Citizen Council.
The event featured vendors from area businesses, organizations and state agencies, all of which help seniors in every aspect of their lives. In addition to local businesses, state, county and local government representatives were on hand to answer questions from attendees. Free health screenings were available, including free flu shots provided by Walgreens Pharmacy.
Rep. Morrison’s senior fair brought over 20 organizations under one roof, making it easy and accessible for seniors to learn more about the services available to them. This is the first senior fair the Representative has hosted, but with its success, he hopes to continue providing this service to the community in the future.
“I enjoyed meeting residents who came from across the district to make it to this event,” said Morrison. “There are great resources available to seniors in this area, and it was amazing to see so many come out to take advantage of this opportunity.”
Morrison’s 54th Legislative District is located in Cook County and includes parts of Palatine, Inverness, Arlington Heights, Barrington, Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg, and portions of the City of Rolling Meadows.
