Wellness event today at school

More than 45 vendors are expected to participate in the 11th annual Family Health and Wellness Festival today.

The festival will be from 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at North Thurston High School, 600 Sleater-Kinney Road N.E. It is put on by the Community Enrichment Program of North Thurston Public Schools.

The festival includes chiropractic screenings, natural-disaster-preparedness lessons and prizes.

Attendants can also participate in the “walk a mile in my school” event. A portion of the school will be marked off so people can measure how far they walk between 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
