turner seniors 100622TAYLORVILLE— Area residents, local organizations and state agencies joined State Senator Doris Turner and the Senior Citizens of Christian County for a senior fair event at the center on Tuesday.

The event provided area seniors the opportunity to connect with local organizations, government agencies, and health care facilities and providers to stay-up-to date with available resources and services. Seniors were also offered the chance to receive flu shots and partake in bone density tests.

“Our community senior fairs help connect area residents with state agencies, health care providers and local organizations to learn more about vital resources and take advantage of screenings and flu shots,” said Turner (D-Springfield). “We are thankful for the opportunity to work with the Senior Citizens of Christian County to host this informative event and provide area seniors with helpful services.”

Turner is hosting senior fairs throughout the district and has one more coming up in Springfield from 9 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 11 at the Salvation Army of Springfield (1600 E. Clear Lake, Springfield, IL). Last week, she hosted another senior fair in Decatur.

Those who would like to learn more about the upcoming senior fair can contact Turner’s Springfield office at 217-782-0228.
