Health event included art class, workshop and line dancing
The City of New Smyrna Beach and VITAS Healthcare were the sponsors of the fourth Senior Summit and Health Fair held on Tuesday at the Alonzo “Babe’’ James Community Center.
About 150 people attended and the event attracted 30 vendors. The summit also gave several members of the New Smyrna Beach Housing Authority the chance to do community service hours by volunteering at the summit and health fair.
Along with receiving health information, the seniors enjoyed exercise line dancing and an art class.
They also participated in a workshop on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Health Impact study conducted by Miles Ballogg and Ken Pinnix from Cardno Inc.
Others who assisted in the event were artist Shy Morris with Peace Arts and Rita Stuart, a line dance instructor. A lunch was provided by HH&B Catering.
