Rain clears for annual Picnic & Health Fair
The Employee Association and the Employee Wellness Committee hosted the 2012 Employee Picnic and Health Fair Sept. 26 at the North Y.
For the third year in a row, the health department’s neighbor, the North Y, agreed to host LFCHD’s Employee Picnic and Health Fair. The early morning rain luckily moved out of the area in time to bring clear skies for this year’s event and helping make it a success.
Nearly 200 public health and HealthFirst Bluegrass staff browsed through the health fair inside the gymnasium. Employees were asked to visit at least six vendors in order to be entered in a raffle to win various prizes and to be awarded 25 points toward the Worksite Wellness Initiative Program. Health fair vendors included EAP, PNC Bank, Bluegrass Pride, Sam’s Club, Good Foods Co-op, Lifestyle Chiropractic, Lexington Legends, John’s Run/Walk Shop and LFCHD’s own programs.
Employees then moved to the outdoor pavilion to enjoy a lunch full of hamburgers or veggie burgers, hot dogs, corn, potato salad and more.
Raffle prize winners included: Skip Castleman, Jessica Cobb, Melisa Crowder, Shana Davis, Lupe De Lafuente, Jane Fraley, Donna Friesen, Latasha Fritts, Melissa Grimes, Pam Hopkins, Ruben Perez, Michelle Phelps, Kara Stanfield and Janey Wendschlag.
Thank you to the members of the Employee Wellness Committee, the Employee Association and Maintenance staff who helped plan, set up and staff the event.
