TELL CITY - More than 200 members of the Wellness 2009 program will converge at Tell City High School's Bryan Taylor Sports Arena Thursday for a health fair.

This health fair, sponsored by Perry County Memorial Hospital, begins at 6 p.m. and features a short speech and an opportunity to experience walking, running, fitness classes and yoga. A dietitian will also provide information about healthy eating.

The group will also meet in the cafeteria for a healthy snack and drink, network and help plan the next meeting and future Wellness 2009 events. According to a release from Tony Hollinden, who is an outspoken advocate for the program, the goal of the Wellness program is to introduce Perry County to "any and all forms of exercise and healthy living experiences." Events in the works are a triathlon for children, bike-to-work promotion, motivational speakers, trail walks and more.
