East Union, partners to host health and wellness fair

Published: Monday, March 31, 2014 11:23 a.m. CDT

AFTON — On April 10, East Union ASPIRE — in conjunction with “Partnering in Communities” committee — will host a health and wellness fair.

Individuals from organizations or local service agencies are invited to provide activities or informational booths to encourage personal wellness — physical, emotional, financial, spiritual, intellectual, social or environmental — for East Union students and their parents. The mission of the event is to promote healthy lifestyles, including good nutrition, physical activities, routines at home, adequate sleep, love and limits, and community involvement, which are all proven to make children better learners and more academically successful. 

At 6 p.m., a healthy, free-will donation supper will be served in the East Union concourse, followed by the opportunity for families to explore hands-on activities and informational booths.

Then at 7 p.m., students and community volunteers will entertain attendees with the first ever ASPIRE “More” Style Show. All clothing and accessories exhibited during this time will be items selected from the ASPIRE “More” Thrift Store. In addition to showcasing the merchandise available, it will be an example of how to spend money wisely.

To be part of this event or become community partner to support East Union families, contact Tammy Ross at 641-347-8777.
