Wellness fair at Armouries
A free community wellness event happens Nov. 9 from 10 am to 3 pm at the Lindsay Armouries, on 210 Kent Street W., in Lindsay.
“Wellness is an important factor in reducing the risk of stress, illness and disease and helps ensure positive relationships with others,” explains Jane Pryde, workplace health and safety coordinator.
“The Wellness Fair provides an opportunity to learn about wellness resources within the community.”
Highlights of the event include:
- free flu shot clinic
- free health screenings
- community health and wellness experts
- free 20 minute fitness class
- interactive activities
- opportunities to win prizes
“We hope the fair will assist local businesses who may not have the resources to provide their own wellness programs,” says Pryde.
“Employee wellness benefits employers by reducing absenteeism, improving morale and increasing focus and productivity.”
