Senator Darrel Aubertine and his talented staff arranged and promoted a blockbuster event today. The Senior Health Fair was instructive and constructive. Those Aubertine operatives
invited all sorts and conditions of private businesses, government agencies and non profit agencies to talk with senior citizens, distribute material and even take blood pressures and do eye screenings. Even wall to wall live music created the right atmosphere. The Watertown Municipal Arena at the fairgounds was filled. To his credit Darrel also reached out and invited his fellow legislators Assemblywomen Addie Russell and Dede Scozzafava to participate. A popular display was a couple of "plug-in" pure electric cars (not hybrids) that offered everyone a
chance to ride and drive.
