On Saturday, Feb. 22, the Health(y) Fair will come to the Activities Center. The event is free and open to the public. With doors opening at 10 a.m., approximately 60 vendors will be on hand to provide information on how to live a healthy, or healthier, life. There will be body composition and blood pressure checks, an opportunity to donate blood, prescription information and medication reviews.
The beneficiary of the Health Fair will be the North Augusta Lions Club, which will use the funds to purchase a RETINOMAX 3. This is a state of the art screening device to be used at North Augusta schools for preventive vision screening and treatment to children in need in day cares, preschools and schools.
There will be vendors discussing end of life issues as well as quality of life issues,. Waffle House will be on hand for breakfast with proceeds again going to Lions Club goals. Do you have any personal documents that need disposed of properly? Augusta Data Storage will provide free shredding of up to three boxes of documents.
There will be vendors for careers and education, the media, cruises, cleaning services, home health care, insurance and health clubs. And for value, the Activities Center simply cannot be beat to meet your health and fitness goals. Simply put, there will be something for everyone.
Many thanks to Rod Barrie of Comfort Keepers and Michele Buck of the Noon Lions Club for providing the leadership to plan this event. Take time out to attend the Health(y) Fair and again discover what a wonderful community North Augusta is. People helping people is what this is all about.
