Evan Children’s Health Fair this weekend
SELINSGROVE — There is a healthy event coming up this weekend for children. Evangelical Community Hospital’s 24th Annual Children’s Health Fair promises activities for fun and learning. Deana Carson, Community Health Instructor at Evan, explained what the kids can look forward to at the Susquehanna Valley Mall.
She said, “We have activities for children ages 2 to 10. Every child who registers can get a free T-shirt. There’s going to be about 65 to 70 area agencies all throughout the mall, so kids can come and have a great time and learn lots of healthy information.”
Carson said this year is full of unique and exciting events for kids. “Our special guest is Clifford the Big Red Dog, so they’ll be taking pictures of children with Clifford the Big Red Dog,” she said. “We also have two puppet shows this year from Kingdom Kidz Puppets. We’re going to have dance demonstrations from Downtown Dance. We’ll also have story time with 94KX, and Evangelical Community Health is going to be doing a fitness challenge with the children.”
Along with fun activities, there will also be free hearing, vision and speech screenings for children. The Evan Children’s Health Fair is this Saturday from 10a.m. to 2p.m. at the Susquehanna Valley Mall.
