“The Senior Fair is an opportunity for us to bring many different parties under one roof, making it easy for seniors to get answers to questions they might have or to learn about services they might not be aware of,” said Tai, who represents Pennsylvania’s 178th district, which includes New Hope, Upper Makefield, Solebury, Wrightstown and Northampton.

“A large proportion of residents in the 178th are seniors, and it’s an important part of my legislative agenda to ensure their needs are met,” she added. “It’s also a wonderful way for my staff and me to meet our residents so that we can learn how we may best serve them.”

The fair takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 14, at New Hope Eagle Fire Company, 46 N. Sugan Road, in New Hope. Phone (215) 598-7615 for more info, or visit Rep. Tai’s website.
