The Valley Hi Youth and Adult Coalition (VHYAC) will host their 7th Annual Family Fun Day and Health Fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at Prairie Elementary School.
Valley Hi community members are invited to spend the day participating in fun, family-centered activities and receive valuable health information and resources. This free event will include vision screening, blood pressure and dental checks for children 0-5 years, as well as a variety of community-based informational booths. In addition to these activities, there will be entertainment, face painting, crafts and prizes. The first 300 visitors to the event will receive a free lunch.
“VHYAC is dedicated to supporting the Valley Hi community,” said Tami Silvera, project implementor with Positive Youth Development Programs, Student Support and Health Services for Elk Grove Unified. “We know that many families are in need and under stress so we plan to provide not only valuable resources, but also a chance to have some fun with their kids. We encourage families with children of all ages to join us for the day.”
The Family Fun Day and Health Fair is sponsored in part by the Elk Grove Unified School District, the Valley Hi Youth and Adult Coalition, Valley Hi Family Resource Center and Birth & Beyond Program, Sacramento City Council Member Darrell Fong, Kaiser Permanente, First 5 Sacramento Commission, People Reaching Out and the City of Sacramento.
