HARRISBURG – Rep. Clint Owlett (R-Tioga/Bradford) is inviting area senior citizens, their family members and caregivers to his upcoming Senior Expo on Friday, Aug. 2, from 9 a.m. to noon at Wellsboro Senior High School Gym and Commons, 225 Nichols St.

In conjunction with the expo, Owlett is also hosting a shredding event in the school’s parking lot to give area residents the opportunity to help protect themselves against identity theft by having documents with personal information securely shredded.

“For more than 25 years, area senior citizens have benefited from the expo and the wealth of information it provides, all in one convenient location,” Owlett said. “I am excited to offer the shredding event as well this year, as identity thieves are looking for every opportunity to take advantage of people and this is one very easy step we can all take to protect ourselves.”

The expo is open to seniors age 50 and older, as well as their family members and caregivers, to obtain information, ask questions, and connect with close to 80 different exhibitors from government agencies; health care service providers; insurance/financial and legal services; long-term care professionals; travel and transportation services; utility companies; and representatives from offices within the federal, state and local governments. Health screenings also will be available, and door prizes will be offered.

The shredding event is open to all residents, but no businesses, please. Residents are invited to bring up to two grocery-style bags of documents with sensitive information, such as Social Security and bank account numbers, to be securely shredded.

Participation in both events is free.
