Health fair was fantastic

Published: Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

On Oct. 25, a gigantic health fair was held with booths from several towns, including DeKalb, Dixon, Amboy, Mount Morris, Polo, Belvidere, and Rockford, and massages, hospitals, nursing homes, Mary Kay, medical, beauty, police, cooking demonstrations, legal and medical workshops, screenings for spine, blood pressure, bone density, hearing, insurance, financial, vaccines, wood carving, veterans, neurology, park district, even White Pines Inn, and I could go on.

This health fair was complete in every sense of the word and of great benefit to the many, many attendees – with handouts and instructions, recipes, door prizes, and treats. Wow.

Many people, I am certain, spent a great deal of time coordinating and preparing for this event, and the facilities at Rock River Center were fantastic.

I want to thank Rock River Center and the University of Illinois, as well as all who had a part in this huge undertaking. It was a great, worthwhile event. Thanks again.

Reader Poll

Rock Falls is considering a ban on leaf burning. Should the city finally take that step?
Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
