Expect no shortage of fun or information at the 2nd annual Health and Safety Fair being held at Mahoning County Career and Technical Center’s Adult Career Center on Safety fair on Wednesday, June 14th from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The fair will take place both indoors and outside, with vendors set up in the cafeteria (room C-01).
MCCTC held their first Health and Safety Fair in 2022 with huge success. According to Adult Career Center Recruiting and Marketing Coordinator, Jodi Glass, “This year, we’re looking forward to it being bigger and better with a lot more for kids and families.” To add a magical twist, Glass said, “Snow White is set to arrive on MCCTC’s firetruck at 11:00AM.” Snow White will stop for a meet and greet and photo op with attendees. The community is also invited to interact with a plethora of first responder and other vehicles, such as fire trucks, a ladder truck lift, electric vehicles, police cruisers, and more.
Children are invited to participate in a scavenger hunt with prizes, and each guest will be given a raffle ticket to enter to win a door prize. For those feeling the need for a quick snack, Molnar’s food truck will have cinnamon rolls and other goodies for sale.
Mental wellness and overall wellbeing are also a focus of the fair. Taylor Burnham, who attended the fair in 2022, said, “I was able to pet some bunnies, and that was really fun.” F5RS Therapy Bunnies will also be attending in 2023. She said, “The bunnies were comforting, and they seemed popular with many of the guests.”
In addition to family fun, the fair is a community event that has a mission to promote health, wellness, and safety. MCCTC Adult Medical Training Program Coordinator, Jodi Coleman, said, “The fair is an event that addresses the needs of the community, whether it be through education or health screenings.” Health screenings available at the fair include hearing, vision, CPR, blood pressure, cholesterol, women and men’s health issues, and others. She said the fair is place to discuss and learn about health “in a festive environment.”
