We have a number of great organizations participating in this resource fair, and people will be able to get information that will help them find the services they need.”

This free event will feature representatives from various organizations. They will be available to provide information and answer questions on issues such as in-home help, housing, health care, taxes, and more.

In addition to Rep. Townsend and his staff, representatives from the following will be at the Senior Resource Fair:
