Heathy lifestyle choices, safe practices, and a generous helping of fun were all on the menu September 27 during Clarksburg School’s Safe Kids Health Fair.
The event featured representatives from health care providers, emergency response agencies, and others – all providing students with information and hands-on activities promoting health and safety in interesting and fun ways.
There were also games and healthy treats for students, as well as free train rides on Huntingdon’s ISTEA Express.
An Air Evac Life Team flew in for a visit, speaking with students and letting them check out their helicopter.
