WEBSTER – Life-Skills Inc. and Page Chiropractic have teemed up again to present the 7th annual East Meets West Health Fair & Business Bonanza. The event will take place on Sunday, March 30, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the Bartlett High School gymnasium, 52 Lake Parkway.
Jean Tremblay and Jen Cournoyer of Page Chiropractic and Lisa Morgan and Tammy Lewandowski of Life-Skills are coordinating the project, which began seven years ago as a health fair to promote both traditional and holistic healing methods and products.
Lisa, the director of Day Habilitation programs at Life-Skills, said the organization began this event as a way to get more exposure to the local community, and also saw it as a good way to give back. “Many people are not aware of the natural products and methods of dealing with health issues.
“It was a fun little health fair at the beginning,” Lisa said, “but over time it developed to include other businesses.”
Jean told us that between 70 and 80 vendors exhibited in the fair last year, and between 300 and 400 people attended the event. The cost for a table for vendors is $50 and there is still time to register, she said.
The fair features free screenings, demonstrations, giveaways, and raffles, including a raffle for a flat screen TV. Admission is free. Proceeds from the event benefit Life-Skills clients.
Life-Skills, Inc. based in Webster, is a regional provider of employment services and residential programs for adults with developmental, physical, and emotional disabilities. Page Chiropractic Health Center, also in Webster, provides a variety of chiropractic services to deal with issues such as back pain, neck pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia, and many others.
