Frankfort, IL… For the fourth year in a row, State Representative Margo McDermed (R-Mokena) is pleased to host a Senior Fair full of vendors and helpful information for residents in the 37th district. The event will be on Thursday, August 16th at the Oaks Recreation and Fitness Center located at 10847 W. LaPorte Road in Mokena. The fair will run from 10:00a.m. until 12:00 noon. It is free and open to the public. This year the fair will feature a mobile unit from the Illinois Secretary of State’s office.
“I encourage senior citizens to come to the fair and learn about the businesses, state and local agencies, and non-for-profits that work to improve their lives,” said Rep. McDermed. “This year the fair will not only help seniors and their caregivers, but all 37th district residents who want convenient, local access to a DMV office.”
At the fair, residents and their caregivers can glean valuable information and access resources from state and local vendors. Staff from Rep. McDermed’s district office will also be available to assist constituents with any state government concerns.
In addition, the Secretary of State’s office will be operating a mobile unit at the fair. The mobile unit operates similar to a DMV office and offers services that include drivers’ licenses renewals, identification cards, vision, and written tests, organ donor registration, voter registration applications, and vehicle and license plate renewal stickers. While the senior fair will end at noon, the mobile unit will continue to run until 1pm. What: Senior Fair and SOS Mobile Unit
