Walnut: New Date for Walnut Family Health and Fitness Fair

Walnut –- With last weekend’s heavy rainstorms, the Family Health and Fitness Fair originally scheduled for Saturday, March 1, has been officially rescheduled for Saturday, April 5, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Walnut Senior Center.

Health IconMost vendors have confirmed their attendance at the new event date, including sponsors Kaiser Permanente and Pomona Valley Medical Center. Attendees will still be able to take advantage of free health screenings, including blood pressure, and bone density; talk to vendors; collect plenty of freebees; and listen to lectures given by health professionals.

“We wanted to provide a successful event, and with the rain forecast last weekend, it would have been difficult for families and seniors to attend,” Council Member Bob Pacheco said.  “Also, we didn’t want the community driving in unsafe conditions during the wet weather.”

The day-long event will provide fun for the whole family as well as opportunities to get informed on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Walnut Senior Center is located at 21215 La Puente Road, in Walnut. For additional information, please call the Walnut Senior Center at (909) 598-6200. For information about the City of Walnut, please visit the website at www.ci.walnut.ca.us.
