SWEET HOME — The fourth annual Community Health Fair will host a record 60-plus tables from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the activity gym at Sweet Home High School, 1641 Long St.
Admission and all events are free to the public.
Co-organizer Bob Dalton told members of the City Council Tuesday evening that although registration forms were due by the end of June, last-minute applications were still coming in.
The event offers free health checks for children and adults, outdoor activities for the entire family, opportunities to connect with housing services, senior services, the clothing closet and more.
“We’re up 15 percent in vendor participation,” Dalton said. “We will have activities going on inside and outside of the activity gym.”
You have free articles remaining.
New this year will be programs by students at COMP-Northwest, who, according to Dalton, "are going to put on a mini-medical school. And there will be a group of students talking about careers in the medical field.”
Samaritan Health Services will also have its mobile clinic van onsite.
Dalton said there will be free haircuts for children and an expanded food court.
“This is our fourth year and every year it has grown,” Dalton said. “We may be looking for more space next year. One vendor is coming from Roseburg this year.”
