They came for health information, some handouts, freebies, food and free flu shots.
And they left with smiles and peace of mind.
Hundreds of senior citizens from throughout the Lehigh Valley turned out Friday for state Rep. Joe Emrick's second annual Senior Fair at the Community Center in Forks Township.
"it's a great way to provide critical information to seniors and a great outreach," Emrick said. "Seniors really appreciate it."
Emrick -- who represents the 137th Legislative District, which includes Forks and Palmer townships and Nazareth -- was thrilled with the turnout, calling it "tremendous."
He also said the number of vendors who signed up were so high that some had to be turned away this year.
Some of the vendors involved this year included:
AARP Pennsylvania, First Energy Corp., Easton Hospital, LANTA, Meals on Wheels, St. Luke's, Seniors Helping Seniors, Second Harvest Food Bank and Country Meadows.
U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent and U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey also had tables.
Free flu shots and blood pressure screenings were also provided.
