Gabler, LIFT to Host Expo for Disabled and Senior Citizens
ST. MARYS – State Rep. Matt Gabler (R-Clearfield/Elk), in partnership with Life and Independence for Today (LIFT), will host a Disability and Aging Resource Expo on Wednesday, Aug. 3, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Johnsonburg Fire Hall, 99 Clarion Road, Johnsonburg.

“This is our third annual expo, and we have even more local and statewide service providers participating than last year,” Gabler said. “The expo is a great opportunity for senior citizens and their families, as well as members of our community living with disabilities, to check out all that is available to them. It’s also a chance for LIFT to display the various services they perform in Elk County and the surrounding six-county region.”
LIFT was established in 1987 by people with disabilities and serves as a Center for Independent Living (CIL). In addition to providing independent living skills training, they can assist with advocacy issues and offer peer mentoring services, information and referrals.

Various types of health screenings will also be performed during the expo. Admission is free and lunch will be served.

Questions about this or any legislative issue should be directed to Gabler’s St. Marys office at (814) 781-6301 or LIFT at (814) 781-3050.
