On Wednesday, October 5th, the City of Carthage Wellness Committee sponsored the annual Health Fair at Memorial Hall. More than 60 employees attended with more than half of them completing this year's "Health Fair Passport". 33 employees had lab work completed onsite.
Members of the Fire Department and Wellness Committee prepared breakfast, including sausage, eggs, and pancakes.
"When we started this a few years ago my guys didn't even want to come to the Health Fair," stated Zeb Carney, Public Works Director. "Now they all come over; many get blood work done and some of them even contacted their doctors afterward to talk about cholesterol levels and stuff like that. This is a great thing for us at Public Works."
