Plans are under way for the tenth annual Health, Business and Industry Fair. It is being held from 11 am. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 20 at the Paulding County fairgrounds.
Paulding County Senior Center is sponsoring the event with promotional assistance from the Paulding Area Social Service Network and the Paulding Chamber of Commerce.
The event was started by Marsha Yeutter, coordinator for the Paulding County Senior Center, as a health fair. In the second year, businesses were invited to set up. From there the yearly event continued to grow, with the addition of various vendors and much more.
Organizers expect at least 45-50 vendors to set up in the Paulding County Extension Building for this fair. There is room for approximately 60 tables.
“There is still room for more vendors and services to sign up and be a part,” said Yeutter.
Among the exhibitors this year are the Paulding County Hospital, Antwerp Vancrest, Gardens of Paulding, health department, courthouse elected officials, Cookie Lee Jewelry, Paulding County Progress and many more.
Several vendors will be donating door prizes.
Other features include blood pressure and other health checks, information on businesses and industries and educational activities. Everyone is welcome to attend this free event, as there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
Homemade soup and sandwiches will be sold from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Carryout is available.
Sponsors of the Health, Industry and Business Fair feel it is important for county residents to know the choices they have available for health and nutrition, financial assistance, educational services, and business and industry.
Registration fee is $15 per table for nonprofit organizations and $30 for for-profit businesses. For questions or further information, call Yeutter at the senior center, 419-399-3650.
Locals may want to take some time during their lunch hour to enjoy some soups and sandwiches, get some health checks, and be a part of this year’s Health, Business and Industry Fair.
