The Healthy Living Fair co-hosted by the town of Oliver, the Oliver Parks and Recreation Department and WOW at the Oliver Community Centre was well attended.
There were twenty-five health based businesses from Oliver, Osoyoos, Rock Creek and surrounding areas that were present to provide information on healthy eating, exercising, blood types, healthy supplements, reflexology, physiotherapy, counselling and much more. There were presentations done by the Desert Valley Hospice providing information on Advanced Care Planning, use of Essential Oils by Toes & Nails Wellness, along with a Tai Chi and a drumming demonstration. Food Secure, sponsored by the Town of Oliver, had the final opening of the Harvest Hut, which was new this year. Their motto is “Share what you have, Take what you need”. They were handing out canned tomatoes with recipes and grown herbs to make salsa, donated onions, potatoes and garlic and provided other health information and contacts.
Door prizes and delicious soup and sandwiches were also enjoyed.
Thank you to all the businesses that were present to help make this fair a success.
