2017 HEALTH FAIR

Dear Crestwood Resident                          ,

 

The Crestwood Fire Department is hosting the 20th Annual Community Fun Fair on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at Nathan Hale Middle School, 135th and Laramie, from 9 AM to 1 PM.

We are attempting to raise funds for the purchase of much needed firefighting, training and communications equipment to benefit our village. The last 19 health fairs have raised money to purchase heart defibrillators, the Jaws of Life, thermal imaging cameras and communication equipment, which have all been used hundreds of times to save the lives of our residents.

Highlights of the Fair include:

Welcome to STACKED, new breakfast and lunch eatery in Crestwood, who will be preparing the all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast ($6.00 per person), $5.00 haircuts by Supercuts, Flu vaccines by Walmart, and new this year, dental exams for $5.00 by Crestwood’s new dentist, and much  more! 

Again this year, Ingalls Memorial Hospital will have a full team of personnel present to draw blood at reduced rates to screen for diabetes, cholesterol, prostate cancer, anemia, thyroid disease, and cardiac risk. They will begin at 9:00 AM until 11AM. If you have not fasted, coupons will be sold that will allow you to take the tests at a later date. See the attached flyer for testing and price information. If you do not have insurance, or if you have a high deductible, this is a great opportunity to receive potentially life saving services at reduced rates.

Flu vaccines and pneumonia vaccines will be given by Walmart depending on availability of the vaccines. Price of the flu shots will be determined when the product is released this year, but as always, there will be no cost to Medicare recipients with proof of insurance.

The main source of raising funds for this project will be a raffle that will be held the day of the fair. All prizes have been donated by the businesses in our area. Enclosed you will find six raffle tickets. Please consider helping this year’s mission by filling out the enclosed ticket stubs and returning the completed portion with your donation in the self addressed envelope.

On behalf of the Crestwood Fire Department, we thank you for your time and support and look forward to seeing you at the fair!
