DART Plans May Health Fair for Senior Citizens
The 22nd Annual Older Americans Information and Health Fair sponsored by Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will be held Thurs., May 5, at Centennial Hall in Fair Park, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Dallas Police Chief David Brown is the special guest for this event. The 30-year veteran, who commands a department of more than 4,000 employees, will visit with and talk to senior citizens as they celebrate the theme "Blaze A Trail: May 2016."
Seniors will have entertainment, health screenings, prizes, giveaways and information available to them thanks to event partners City of Dallas, Community Council of Greater Dallas, Dallas Police Department, Telemundo-39 (KXTX) and NBCDFW-5 (KXAS).
DART's Green Line is the quickest way to Fair Park Station where it's a short walk to Centennial Hall. Attendees are encouraged to park for free at any DART bus or train facility and ride transit to the health fair. Passengers who show their valid pass at the event will receive a special prize and the center or organization that brings the most seniors on DART will receive special recognition.
Contact Jessica Lennon, DART's Manager of Community/Education Outreach at 214-749-2582 for more information. Visit DART.org or call 214-979-1111 for information on riding DART.
