CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - Men and women toted white bags around the vacant building, gathering pamphlets and giveaways from vendors participating Friday in state Rep. Rob Kauffman's third annual Senior Fair.
Needs from health to living accommodations to property tax rebates were addressed at the fair.
The fair serves as a place to seek advice, especially for those who might not have any other place to turn, Kauffman said.
"There are a lot of senior citizens out there who don't have anyone to care for them," said Kauffman, R-Franklin/Cumberland.
Kauffman said organizers have tried to build onto previous successes, making the fair bigger and better each year. One thousand people attended the first year and about 1,500 this year.
"We have 80 vendors who registered today, and it's a clearinghouse of information for our seniors," Kauffman said.
John and Mary Tribble of Chambersburg said they would recommend the fair to others and would tell them that a lot of information is available.
