The women’s group at Pitts Chapel United Methodist Church made a goal this past year to focus on healthy, happy lifestyles. This Saturday will mark the first free wellness fair to help them reach that goal.

The “Spring into Health” wellness fair is planned from noon to 2 p.m. at Pitts Chapel, 600 Benton Ave, March 26. Jordan Valley Community Health Center partnered with the women’s group to host the wellness fair, said Charlotte Hardin, chair with Pitts Chapel Administrative Board.

“We decided, every quarter, we were going to do something to address health and wellness,” Hardin said, considering the chapel’s older members “are facing lots of health issues in our various networks and groups.”

With congregator’s conversations centering on health challenges, Hardin said the women’s group decided to jump in on providing resources and information to folks who may need it.
