Time to think healthy

It's never too late to think healthy. And this Friday you can find out more about good health at the Keeler Centre.

 

The fledgling Colborne Lions Club is hosting its first Health and Wellness Fair in the Rotary Hall, with at least 18 health providers on hand to make your life better.

 

Lion Paul Anstee says there will be people from many of the major organizations fighting disease, including the Cancer Society, Diabetes Association, the CNIB, and Parkinson's Support Group. Colborne Community Care will be there explaining its Meals on Wheels program and other services offered.

 

Cramahe Fire Chief Brandon Northrup will explain the importance of having smoke detectors on all floors of your home.

 

The Lions will have a booth which will outline the need for organ donors.

 

Health retailers can give you some free advice. Brighton Health Shop can suggest remedies, Studio on the Hill will demonstrate how easy it is to do yoga and tell you how it can help you. Kendal Tea Grannies, Mary Kay and others will join the fun from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on February 24.

 

Some of the credit for the day long fair must go to Pauls' spouse, Fran. She's a personal support worker and has noticed that people, especially the elderly, don't know what's out there and available to them.
