Dilworth's Health Fair A Success

Our health should always be a main priority in our lives. Therefore on Tuesday, July 28th the first ever Dilworth Health and Wellness Fair was held during Dilworth’s Loco Daze Celebration. With over 30 health organizations participating, the event was quite a success.

Those who came had the opportunity to visit with multiple regional health organizations ranging from the Alzheimer’s Association to local dentists and chiropractors as well as numerous others! Participants received everything from free blood pressure screenings to healthy eating tips, useful exercise suggestions to personal assistance with medications.

The Health Fair began strong at 9:00am and traffic remained steady throughout the morning. And the live entertainment was great! Minnesotan author and phenomenal speaker Eric Bergeson entertained with songs and heartfelt stories about local culture. A free lunch followed with music by local entertainer Ron Evans.

The Dilworth Health and Wellness Fair was co-sponsored by the City of Dilworth and Serenity Assisted Living. The sponsors extend a special thanks to all the organizations that helped make this event a reality.
