by KEATON T. DEPRIEST Associate Editor
The Rotary Club of Amherst South will host its fifth annual health fair from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 15, at Windermere Boulevard Elementary School, 291 Windermere Blvd., Amherst.
The event provides an opportunity for people to receive checkups and vaccinations as well as receive information about ways to stay healthy.
The club’s immediate past president, Guy Marlette, who is also a member of the organization’s public relations committee, said the fair is continuing to grow and expand its services, which are provided for free during the event. He said the mission of the event is to change lives and enhance the community.
“It’s part of what Rotary believes in enhancing the quality of life. Our club likes to do things that have great value and benefit to the community,” Marlette said.
He said another goal of the event is to promote good health and to show the community that it involves many areas of a person’s life, including nutrition, hygiene and exercise.
Marlette added that the club has held the health fair at Windermere for the past five years.
“We choose to do it there because of the school’s commitment to the [youths] and the area,” he said. “They are all keenly aware that a well-rounded community has an active participation in many different areas.”
