On July 12, Assemblyman Kevin Byrne (R,C,I,Ref-Mahopac) participated in the 2017 Putnam Valley Senior Health Fair at the Putnam Valley Senior Center. Hundreds of local residents attended the free event offered in partnership with NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital and the Putnam Valley Seniors, and enjoyed an array of educational workshops and demonstrations. The day’s activities also featured a variety of refreshments, as well as door prizes and giveaways.
The event offered local seniors an engaging and educational opportunity to discuss numerous health-related topics, including health care, taxes and affordability and how to become an organ donor in New York State. Assemblyman Byrne sent out a mail piece to nearly 1,000 senior households promoting the event and encouraging Putnam Valley residents to attend. “This is a wonderful annual event put together by the incredible team of volunteers of the Putnam Valley Seniors and NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital, and we thank Assemblyman Byrne for supporting and promoting the event,” said Marie Zarcone, President of the Putnam Valley Seniors.
“As a former resident of Putnam Valley, and a ranking Minority member of the Assembly’s Aging Committee, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in this year’s Putnam Valley Senior Health Fair,” said Byrne. “Ensuring our residents have access to educational opportunities such as these is crucially important, and I applaud our local partners, NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital, Putnam Valley Seniors, Marie Zarcone, and the Town of Putnam Valley, for their continued commitment to the health and well-being of our community.”
