SPRINGFIELD — State Sen. Eric Lesser and Health New England announced that they will host the second annual “Thrive After 55” Wellness Fair on Friday June 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Springfield College’s Blake Athletic Complex, located at 263 Alden St., Springfield.

The fair is free and open to the public. With more than 40 local organizations ranging from health and fitness to nutrition to elder law, the event will connect residents of the First Hampden & Hampshire District with information and resources to help them thrive.

“I’m excited to host this event again this year,” Lesser said. “Last year, we had more than 500 people attend this informational event. This year, we are eager to offer an even greater variety of resources, seminars, and raffle prizes.”

Maura McCaffrey, president and CEO of Health New England, noted the success of last year’s fair and added that “this year’s event is designed to provide important and reliable information about health, healthcare, and lifestyle resources available to anyone 55 years of age and older. With so many quality vendors representing diverse areas of interest, it’s a great place to research local services and explore opportunities for active, healthy living.”

The free program includes a boxed lunch, educational seminars, hundreds of raffle prizes, and access to information and experts to talk to. To RSVP for the event, call Lesser’s office at (413) 526-6501 or visit www.senatorlesser.com/thrive.
