Seventh Annual Senior Expo Set

Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) is hosting her seventh annual Senior Expo for residents age 55 and older and their families on Friday, June 15, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Athens-Lynch/Bustin Elementary School.

“This event allows senior citizens and their families to obtain a myriad of information on services that are available in the community, all under one roof,” said Pickett. “The Commonwealth offers many programs to aid senior citizens, but they are only useful if residents know about them. My Senior Expo helps to promote these worthwhile programs.”

Pickett will host two town hall meetings at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to answer seniors’ state-related questions and to learn more about the legislation lawmakers are creating to benefit them.

Light refreshments and a wide-variety of door prizes from vendors will be provided.

The Senior Expo will feature over 85 exhibitors, including the local Area Agencies on Aging; the Social Security Administration; the Pennsylvania Treasury Department Bureau of Unclaimed Property; the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission; the Guthrie Clinic; Memorial Hospital; and assisted living communities. Representatives of those organizations will be on hand to answer questions and provide information on topics including health care, volunteer opportunities, investments, insurance, nutrition and exercise, and government services.

For more information on transportation, contact the Endless Mountain Transportation Authority (EMTA) at 1-800-242-3484, or the Susquehanna County Transport System at 1-800-323-2051.

For more information on the Senior Expo, call Pickett’s district offices in Sayre (570) 888-9011, Towanda (570) 265-3124, Sullivan (570) 946-7673 or Susquehanna County (570) 934-2557.

The Best Little Show

You don't need to be a Texan to love the legendary Broadway musical, “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.” In fact, you don't need to ever have set foot in Texas... or in the type of establishment named in the play's title.

You just have to love great musical theater!

What's it all about?

It's about a small businesswoman's struggle for survival in the face of a crusade by politicians and the media. It's about loyalty and hypocrisy. It's about a story and songs (such as "Girl, You're a Woman") that packed 'em in on Broadway.

So come down to Mountain View High School to see and hear Endless Mountains Theatre Company put this big ol' Texas show across with their tall order of Pennsylvania talent. And the best part is, it's legal!

EMTC's production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas will be performed June 22-23, at 7 p.m. and June 24, at 3 p.m. at Mountain View High School. $7 Seniors/Students/Members (with Membership Card), $9 general admission. Book by Larry L. King and Peter Masterson; music and lyrics by Carol Hall; EMTC version directed by Tim Hutchins. Show content is comparable to a "PG" movie. More info at or (570) 278-3333.
