VillAGE OF LOMBARD HOSTs Annual SENIORs Event

2021 Services for Seniors Event

The Village of Lombard hosted a Services for Seniors event focused on offering seniors access to on-site service on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Madison Meadow Athletic Center, 500 E. Wilson Avenue.

Local agencies provided basic health services for seniors on-site. Services available included:  

  • Blood pressure screenings
  • Flu shots 
  • Chair massages and posture screenings
  • Hearing screenings
  • COVID-19 vaccines 
  • Balance screenings
  • DMV services

Unlike past Senior Fair events, the 2021 Services for Seniors Event was reduced in scale and limited solely to a selection of available on-site services. Commercial and civic organization vendors were not present in person on-site, although their literature, contact information, and giveaways were made available to attendees collectively.
