The SaddleBrooke Health Fair is scheduled for Saturday morning, October 17. This will be the eighteenth year for the popular event. The health fair brings SaddleBrooke residents together with medical and health providers in the area. Often residents discover issues that need attention during diagnostic tests or while meeting with providers to discuss treatments and services.

The Health Fair continues to succeed due to the efforts of volunteers who want to make a difference in our community. Over 100 residents offer their time for a 90 minute shift on the day of the fair. There are many fun assignments that use different skills and talents. Volunteer opportunities are available in several areas: greeting, information, immunizations, traffic, set up and take down, surveys and general assistance. Sign up now and you will be contacted prior to the fair with orientation schedules and, of course, to make arrangements to receive every volunteer’s favorite green tee shirt.
