The City of Everett recently hosted the annual Senior Health Fair at the Connolly Center. After being unable to host the event since the pandemic, Mayor Carlo DeMaria was pleased to bring this event back once again for Everett’s seniors.
The health fair brings together many vendors that offer various types of services like health checkups, assisted living, financial assistance and more. This year, over 20 vendors participated in the event to greet attendees and provide more information about the services they can offer to seniors. There were also free service demos like blood pressure checks, glucose and cholesterol testing, massage demos and bone density tests offered for attendees to be informed about their current health.
Those who attended were also treated to a surprise belly dancing performance by our seniors who participate in just one of the many different classes we offer at the Connolly Center.
“I’d like to thank the entire Council on Aging team for all their work in putting together this wonderful event,” said Mayor DeMaria. “I’m glad we were able to once again offer an important event like this to our seniors.”
