Wellness Fair

TO THE EDITOR: The Parent & Community Education Subcommittee, a part of the Plattsburgh Campus & Community Partnership, would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who participated in our second-annual Plattsburgh Community Health & Wellness Fair on Thursday, Jan. 23.

The goal of this event was to bring parents, youth and community members together in a forum that could showcase all the wonderful centers, organizations, businesses, etc., that are available right here in our own community, whose focus is on keeping people physically, mentally and emotionally healthy and safe.

So a big thank you to the American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, Behavioral Health Services North (both Early Advantages & Employee Assistance Services), Champlain Valley Family Center, Child Care Council, Clinton County Health Department (Healthy Schools), Clinton County Youth Bureau, Girl Scouts, NAMI, National Eating Disorder Association, North Country Cross Fit, North Country Optical, Pine Harbour, Planned Parenthood, Plattsburgh City Police, Reality Check, Stop Domestic Violence, STOP DWI, Villari’s, Wellness Center at PARC, and Carrie Trombley (Zumba Instructor), as well as the CVPH Blood Bank and Marrow Registry for their tabling and/or demonstrations.

In addition, we would like to acknowledge Pepsi Cola Bottling Co. for their generous donation of bottled water and to Price Chopper and Sam’s Club for their gift-card donations to help purchase healthy snacks to give to all in attendance.

Finally, a thank you to the Plattsburgh City School District, especially PHS Principal Glenn Hurlock, for supporting this initiative and hosting it at Plattsburgh High School for all to attend.
