The Washington Wellness Committee put together the “Wake Up To Wellness” Health Fair last Saturday. A wonderful event, meant to educate parents and children on the benefits of introducing healthier lifestyle changes and the opportunities for health and wellness avenues in the area. The health fair was attended by many, and as I mingled in the crowd, I took lots of pictures for you!
These wonderful brochures, created by Jane Mense, contained information on the health fair as well as a scavenger hunt for the kids!
Our Lady of Lourdes had a great display, complete with fruit and veggies.
Beleta Pierce, with Swiss Plus, was offering samples of their anti-stress and 31 herbal oils, as well as hand lotions and other products infused with essential oils. They work wonders, in just minutes!
The Washington Lions Club provided eye screenings for adults and kids. I scored 15/15 – yay, I don’t have glaucoma! 😉
Hilllermann Nursery and Florist was also part of the Health Fair – nature and plants are essential for our well being.
Todd Geisert Farms, Home of the Happy Pigs, had delicious samples of their new products. People kept passing by their booth 😉
Yael DiPlacido and Dr. Zunli Mo from the Washington Healing Arts Center were there to give information on counseling, hypnotherapy, acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
Dale Lintzenich, with Zenervention, offered mini zen sessions, that many took advantage of.
The Mercy team did health screenings at the lower level of the City Park Auditorium – prevention and early detection of symptoms always helps fight disease.
There were many activities, as well. Jaime Kuenzie did a CrossFit for Kids demo, which got the little ones jumping and moving!
Healthy snacks were offered by the YMCA board, including delicious fruit kabobs, quinoa salad, grilled cheese sandwiches and soup.
Amy Lamb, with Juice Plus, gave information on their product and the amazing Tower Garden!
There was face painting for the children, and all girls were transformed into butterflies.
Part of the Health Fair was also the Poster Contest, which many local schools took part in!
The Washington Wellness Committee is looking forward to expanding the fair next year, and inviting more health and wellness professionals from the area.
