Parkside invites public to Safety & Wellness week, fair

Parkside Homes Inc. is hosting a Summer Safety & Wellness Week June 11-15, followed by a Summer Safety & Wellness Fair on Saturday, June 16.

After focusing on weight loss, exercising and eating right for the past few months, Parkside residents and staff are learning that the ?wellness? concept covers so much more.

Topics such as identity fraud awareness, wearing a scatbelt, eating breakfast, putting on sunscreen, handling grief and handling foods safely all affect one's wellness. Parkside wants the community to join them as they learn about these topics and more.

Various county businesses will be on site offering information, handouts, freebies, and entertainment for all ages.
