LEOPOLD – Perry County residents interested in improving their health and wellness can find lots of help at the annual Perry Central Health Fair from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday. This fair is co-sponsored by Perry County Memorial Hospital and includes booths and activities like health screenings, information booths, immunizations, healthy snacks, safety demonstrations and fire trucks and rescue vehicles to tour.  A free soup-and-salad supper will be offered until 7 p.m. in the cafeteria.

In addition to the booths there will be activities for all ages. Children 6 and under can ride bikes in a safety town set up in the dome.  Families can participate in a family fitness walk or line dancing and receive a water bottle for their efforts.  There will also be a book sale in the library.

Perry Central Family Outreach Coordinator Jackie Colucci said the fair, which attracted more than 400 visitors last year, has something for everyone interested in becoming healthier in 2009.
