CASD plans Fitness and Wellness Fair in April

| Monday, March 10, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

Students, parents, staff and the community are invited to the Connellsville Area School District's Fitness and Wellness Fair in April.

The 2014 Fitness and Wellness Fair will be held 9 a.m. to noon April 5 in the high school cafeteria.

The district hasn't offered the fitness and wellness fair since 2010 and prior to that, the fair was held every other year going back to 2005.

Vicki McWilliams, the school district's superintendent secretary and a member of the district's wellness committee, said the fair promotes health awareness for the students, parents, staff and community.

There's no cost to attend the fair, which will be held at the newly renovated high school.

McWilliams said the fair attracted approximately 500 people in 2010.

Some of the features for the upcoming fair include gym activities for children K-12, a chance auction, door prizes and vendors. McWilliams said approximately 30 to 40 vendors are expected to be on hand.

The vendors can include chiropractors, health care facilities, fitness instructors and county organizations such as the Fayette County Association for the Blind, Fayette County Drug and Alcohol Commission and Private Industry Council, to name a few.

Those attending the fair will be able to watch demonstrations including line dancing; karate from Culver Karate; Zumba from Bring It Fitness; yoga from Cathy Kumor and West Crawford students; a jump-rope competition and indoor walking from Walk Live in the lobby.

Refreshments of fruit, bagels, coffee and juice will be on hand.

The Fitness and Wellness Fair is organized by the Connellsville Area School District Wellness Committee.

Fair organizers are looking for volunteers. Those interested may contact Vicki McWilliams at 724-628-3300 ext. 327.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
