State Rep. John Lawrence held the always popular Senior Expo this year at the Barn of Nottingham, located behind the Wawa in Nottingham.
The Barn was the perfect spot to hold this event. It showcased a new venue in the area and provided the much-needed parking for an event of this size. It was estimated that over 250 people attended this year.
It was a step back in time, entering a barn surrounded by beautiful farmland and a pond. It was quite a welcome to the senior population that benefitted from a wealth of information available during the Senior Expo.
State Rep. Lawrence, and his dedicated group, do their best to inform all of the public with what is happening in his district.
“Many of the people, young and old, were anxious about Christiana Hospital coming in to locate where Jennersville Regional Hospital was,” Lawrence said. 
Lawrence, has been a catalyst in seeking a medical facility to replace Jennersville. With numerous age-restricted (over 55) developments, Jenner’s Pond Nursing Facility and Luther House, an affordable senior housing complex, surrounding the hospital, medical care in this area is critical.
Lawrence and his office can provide help and assistance with many problems, including obtaining long form birth certificates and death certificates and car registrations, solving license issues, securing copies of house and senate legislation, providing state maps and publications, distributing application for higher education grants and various professional grants, and answering questions on the Pa. income tax, senior citizen property tax rent rebate, and financial assistance.
Lawrence said, “I love seeing my constituents face to face. It is important for me to hear directly from people in Southern Chester County. It is vital that my constituents know I am listening to them and that I care about them. The Senior Expo provides me that opportunity.”
