"Huge turnout at our Carbondale Senior Fair this morning -- the highest I've seen in five years," noted Schimpf in the post.

Schimpf also shared his thanks with the vendors and others who helped make this year's fair a success, along with a photo of himself greeting fair attendees.

In addition to offering local seniors the chance to meet their state legislators, the event included free health screenings, free massages, free refreshments and opportunities for assistance with state government and legislative issues.
