Community Health Fair-Macclenny

MACCLENNY, FLORIDA – The Woman’s Club of Macclenny is sponsoring its 2nd Annual Community Health Fair tomorrow - Saturday, April 29, from 9 am to 3 pm at the Baker County Fair Grounds. The Community Health Fair is a family-friendly event with items of interest for those from four to one hundred.

Organized in 1919, the "Mother's Club" was the forerunner of the Woman's Club of Macclenny.

Meetings were held in homes, schools, and later in the local Eastern Star Hall on each month's first and third Friday. Dues were $1.00 a year, and were paid 10 cents a month.

For over 100 years, club members have been busy with civic, school, health-related, and community activities.

Macclenny Fire & Rescue and Baker County Fire & Rescue will be there with the fire engines to see up close. Not sure exactly what firemen and women do? Now is your chance to find out.

K-9 police officers save lives. The Baker County Sheriff's Office will introduce and demonstrate the abilities of its K-9 officers and handlers.

If your dog needs a pedicure, County Pup will be doing free nail clippings.

If you are curious about your blood pressure – get it checked for free.

In the mood to give blood, One Blood will be on hand.

There will be free face painting for the kids and a free coloring contest, and the YMCA will have activities and information about their new summer programs.

The Community Health Fair is an event for the whole family. It is free, and the parking is free.

So pack up the car with the family and head to the Macclenny Woman’s 2nd Annual Community Health Fair.
