The SaddleBrooke Community is fortunate to have both the Oro Valley Hospital and the University of Arizona Medical Center at the Health Fair once again this year. The Pharmacy Department of the University of Arizona will return with their hard working, service oriented pharmaceutical students. You will learn more about the wide variety of exhibitors later in the summer.

These exhibitors routinely tell us that our fair is one of the finest such events they attend. Exhibitors note the quality and appreciate it, but they may not realize why our event stands out from the others. The reason is simple – the volunteer spirit so alive in SaddleBrooke. Newcomers frequently comment on how generous SaddleBrooke residents are with their time and talents. The Health Fair is a simple way to become involved. It is fun, doesn’t take much time and, of course, you will receive the popular green volunteer tee shirt.

So, if you have up to three hours of spare time, the Health Fair Planning Committee has an idea for you. Do you like to meet and greet new people? Sign up for the greeter team. Would you rather distribute surveys? Request a position on the survey team for you. Perhaps directing traffic is your secret dream. The Health Fair needs help on the traffic team. If you just can’t get enough rearranging and moving things around, the set up and take down teams are sure to satisfy that need. You may be a generalist at heart. If so, check out the Assist Team. The immunization team also needs volunteers.

Even though the Health Fair is a few months away, our Volunteer Coordinator Sally Sample is busy assigning team leaders and planning for the Health Fair which will be held at the SaddleBrooke One Clubhouse on Saturday morning, October 17.
