Saturday, August 5, 2017 was an overcast day, but that didn’t stop hundreds of kids and families coming out to the Health Faire at Ella Hill Hutch. The rewards were getting fully-loaded backpacks to start school. Many organizations and health agencies gave these families an opportunity to learn about resources in the community. There was an Emergency Response Team, dental screenings, and mental health organizations that joined the YMCA, KIPP, the National Parks and many others, including CommunityGrows. Staff members Adrian Almquist and Jay Jordan were on hand to offer healing herbs, free seeds and more information about our programs. Jay prepared a presentation on gratitude, including sage and rosemary. Face-painting was a popular activity too. Outside, food trucks, jumpy houses and games keep everyone happy while waiting in long lines to go through the resources to get the free backpacks. More photos from the day here.
