Chamber Co-Sponsors Holistic Health Fair

Macedon Public Library was the site for an Alternative and Holistic Health Fair, sponsored by the library and the Canal Connection Chamber of Commerce, which was held on Saturday, April 22 (which also happened to be Earth Day). Nearly a dozen exhibitors were present, representing holistic healing practices ranging from chiropractic to homeopathy to essential oils. They explained and demonstrated their services and offered samples to more than 30 attendees. The event was free and open to the public.

A Win-Win for the Community

“Patrons have often asked about having such a fair, and they certainly have an appetite for alternative and holistic medical literature,” said library director Stacey Wicksall. “Keeping this in mind, it seemed that offering the fair would be of value to the community. They would have the opportunity to meet local practitioners and sample some of their treatments to get a better sense of what alternatives appeal.  Also, for the local practitioners, the fair helped them to reach new clients, which means they, hopefully, will be able to continue offering their services in the area.  It’s a win-win!”

Chamber of Commerce President Shelly Conboy agreed with Wicksall. “Our successful event,  located in a central area, provided the community the opportunity to hear about holistic options available to them in our local communities,” she said. “As non-chemical healing  is on the rise, we were happy to support our community members with more education and opportunity to experience them.”

Pizza with Police

Well Received

The event was so well received all parties involved decided we’ll do this again when the weather is warmer.  This one was held on Monday (March 13th) evening.  Mark’s manager, Adam, suggested we do the next Pizza with Police on a Thursday or Friday evening.  As a result the next Palmyra Pizza with Police will  be held in June.  Watch for the announcement.

Watch for a Pizza with Police in Macedon (date coming soon) and Walworth (date also coming soon)!!!

Goodies

For those with children who missed this event, bring your children to our next one.  Officers came with goodies for the children.  They brought teddy bears, coloring books, pencils and more.
