On Monday, Oct. 17, and Friday, Oct. 21, Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) will host Senior Fairs to give seniors a chance to get assistance with a variety of issues from his staff as well as local organizations, agencies, and businesses. Ald. Matt O’Shea and State Rep. Bill Cunningham will attend the Oct. 17 fair at St. Xavier University's Shannon Center. State Rep. Michael Zalewski will attend the Oct. 21 fair at Rhine VFW Post #2729 in Chicago.

“I take great pride in looking out for the interests of the Third District’s senior citizens while on Capitol Hill,” Lipinski said. “But I also want seniors to know that I stand ready to help them cut through bureaucratic red tape at home to get the services they need. My office has helped countless seniors get answers and solve problems involving Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Veterans’ benefits, the Postal Service, and many other federal issues. These Senior Fairs are an extension of my help for all the seniors in my district.”

The Senior Fair at St. Xavier University’s Shannon Center, 3700 W. 103rd St., Chicago, will take place on Monday, Oct. 17, from 10 a.m. to Noon.
