Chamber hosts health and safety fair
October 4, 2012
The Newcastle Chamber of Commerce hosts the first Newcastle Health and Safety Fair from 6-7:30 p.m. Oct. 24 in the commons at Hazelwood Elementary School.
The free event will provide Newcastle residents with information about how to live healthier lifestyles and to help citizens ensure that they are prepared in emergency situations.
Representatives from several local businesses will be on hand to show residents how their services can help improve health and safety.
A representative from Valley Medical Center will be on hand to provide free health screenings, and members of the Newcastle Police Department will be available to meet with local community members. Newcastle Weed Warriors will also be there to warn about noxious weeds that are harmful to people.
There will be healthy snacks, a raffle and several information booths.
Angela Wingate, chairwoman of the Newcastle Chamber of Commerce, said she hopes the event will bring awareness to local health and wellness issues.
“We hope that the community is able to be more aware of what they can do to help improve their lives, and the community as a whole, in being safe and healthy,” she said.
