Free Wellness Fair Helps You Live Well and Feel Well.

TUDOR-CASHEL Twp – ‘Tis the Season to go a little bit overboard with eating, drinking, spending  — and once you add in the stress of holiday travel and looking after company, we are often inspired to do something for ourselves and to make some New Year’s Resolutions relating to our own personal health and wellness.

Rural Outreach Program Coordinator Maryann Post wants to make the process easier for those in the community to connect with their local wellness providers so she has organized a free Wellness Fair that will showcase all of the health and healing talents of our local area.

“I am organizing this Wellness Fair to increase health awareness among participants. I encourage everyone to attend, there is something for everyone,” says Post as she makes the final arrangements for the December event.

Post has been working as a volunteer since the fall with the program that received funding from the Health Community Fund. The Program has offered free yoga classes, basketball clinics, water colour painting classes, improvisational theatre and paper craft classes. The Wellness Fair is just another way to engage the community and shift the focus to making a plan for wellness in our everyday lives.

“I guarantee you will walk away from this Wellness Fair with a broader knowledge of the wellness resources offered,” Post says.

“So challenge yourself to seek your New Years Resolution to ‘Live Well Feel Well’ by coming out to join us at our 1st Wellness Fair Dec. 12 1 p.m. to 4 p..m., Tudor-Cashel Community Centre.”

Post says the afternoon event will feature wellness providers, face painting, door prizes and the chance to meet local health and wellness gurus. Information will also be available at the Fair for those looking for more Rural Outreach Program classes this winter. Water colour classes will continue but new to the schedule will be snowshoeing, creative movement and theatre for kids and improvisational theatre for youth. These programs are free to residents of Wollaston, Limerick and Tudor-Cashel.

The Wellness Fair runs Sun., Dec 12, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Tudor-Cashel Township – The Old Gilmour School.

Admission is free!
