– Rep. Matthew Dowling (R-Fayette/Somerset) is hosting a free Family Expo on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Uniontown Mall, 1368 Mall Run Road, Uniontown
. The expo will focus on all phases of family life and be geared toward children, parents/adults, senior citizens, veterans and workers.
The expo is designed to give anyone, regardless of age, an opportunity to become more educated about the services available for them in and around the 51st District. Nearly 60 exhibitors will be in attendance.
“This expo gives residents the opportunity to learn about resources and programs provided by not only the county and state government, but local nonprofit and community groups also,” said Dowling. “As always, there is no cost to attend this fun, informative event.”
There will be multiple door prize drawings during the event, as well as presentations and activities for children, including a Lego-themed kids area focusing on “building a better community.” Music will be provided by the VFW Post 8543 Band, and Dairy Queen is offering a Dilly Bar dipping station. Flu shots, eyesight screenings, hearing aid batteries and balance screenings, as well as blood pressure and body fat composition testing, will be available. This year’s expo will also serve as the collection site for the Fayette Chamber of Commerce’s annual Fall Food Drive.
WMBS 590 AM / 101.1 FM will host a live broadcast sponsored by K2 Engineering from 10 a.m. to noon or via Facebook LIVE at Facebook.com/RepDowling
, barring any technical difficulties.
Those interested in attending the expo do not need to pre-register but should check in upon arrival to be eligible for prize drawings and to receive a program. Individuals with questions are welcome to contact Dowling’s office at 724-438-6100 with any questions.
