HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - The annual Green Living and Wellness Fair will be held on Saturday, June 4th, in conjunction with the Hillsborough YMCA HOP 5K.
The fair will be held rain or shine 9 am-noon at the Peter J. Biondi Municipal Building.
“Two years ago we added a green and sustainable element to the annual Health Fair. This year in an effort to continue and grow the program we have added an additional element by partnering with the YMCA’s Hillsborough HOP,” said Mayor Frank DelCore.
Participating businesses will have displays and demonstrations to raise awareness of the many facets of living a healthy lifestyle, including making sound nutritional choices, making long-term life planning decisions, choosing a green lifestyle as well as many health screenings.
Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital–Somerset will also conduct a blood drive in the Senior Activity Center.
There will be a poster contest open to all school aged Hillsborough residents to design a “Living Green” themed poster. Submitted posters should communicate a positive message on the benefits of living a Green Lifestyle, on an 8 ½” x 11” size paper.
Include name, address, home phone number, age, grade and school on the back of the poster. Posters must be submitted to the Administration Office by Friday, June 3rd at 4 pm for consideration for the contest.
All participants will receive a certificate of participation from Mayor DelCore and finalist prizes will be presented at the June 14th Township Committee meeting.
Those organizations wishing to participate in the Fair must register in advance by calling the Health Department at 908-369-5652. To register to participate in the YMCA Hop 5K, please visit the YMCA’s website at http://www.somersetcountyymca.org/giving/hillsborough-ymca-hop-5k.
