Springdale senior citizens fair to highlight available resources

Emily Balser

Alle-Kiski senior citizens will have a chance to learn more about services available to them during a spring resource fair this Friday.

The fair is hosted by state Sen. Lindsey Williams and will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Springdale Veterans Association banquet hall, 1151 Pittsburgh St.

A continental breakfast will be provided and more than 30 vendors will be available to meet with seniors.

Vendors include Allegheny County Library Association, PennDOT, Penn State Extension Allegheny County Master Gardener Program, Pittsburgh Senior News, Port Authority of Allegheny County, UPMC Health Plan, and Venture Outdoors.

The Allegheny County Sheriff’s Department will also be collecting expired prescriptions during the event.

A professional storyteller and therapy animals from the Animal Friends Therapet Program will also be there.

Williams’ staff will also be available to assist seniors with completing rent rebate forms.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
