Senior Center to have health fair Oct. 8

The Morristown Senior Center is saying if you can’t succeed to try again.

An attempt to host an outdoor health fair in September was cancelled due to illness, but a new date of Friday, Oct. 8 is set to have the fair again.

Hours of the fair are from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

“We will have 30 agencies that will be represented,” Senior Center Valerie Farmer said. “It will be a good time to see people, get good information, goodies and to socialize.”

This health fair will be the third fair held since the COVID-19 pandemic. There will be everything from home health, insurance agencies, assisted living, financial institutions, plus lots of agencies who have information to give seniors.

Morristown Parks and Recreation and Morristown Fire Department will also be on hand.

There will also be live music and drive-through flu shots will be provided by Walgreen’s.

For more information, call 423-581-5166.
