The Broken Arrow Senior Center and the Rotary Club of Broken Arrow will hold the 27th annual Senior Resource & Health Fair on April 21. The free event is held to benefit senior citizens and their families in the Tulsa and Broken Arrow area.
“This annual event is one of the largest health and resource fairs in the state and the only event in Broken Arrow designed to help people 55 and older and their families discover resources available to them,” says June Ross, B.A. Senior Center executive director.
Basic health screenings for visual acuity, hearing, glaucoma, blood pressure, diabetes, and bone density will be available, plus close to 100 on-site informational and screening booths, including displays by the center’s platinum sponsors: Bellarose, City of Broken Arrow, Floral Haven, Heritage Point of Tulsa, LIFE Senior Services, and Tapestry at Woodland Hills.
Broken Arrow Police Department (BAPD) will be sponsoring a shredding event with American Document Shredding. The BAPD with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics (OBN) will also offer a drug drop-off location.
There will also be hourly demonstrations by the Senior Center’s line dancing, Zumba and tai chi groups.
The event will be held 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Central Park Community Center, 1500 S. Main St.
