Healthy Family Fair 2015
Thank you to everyone who helped to make the 2015
Healthy Family Fair a huge success!! It is estimated that
we had over 1500 people in attendance. This event would
not be possible with out the assistance and support of
several community agencies that are involved in the planning process, as well as the many sponsors, and the Marshalltown Mall.
We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did and we look forward to another great Family Fair
in 2016!!
