Cecil Whig - - & - By JANE BELLMYER


— Those who get their ex­er­cise hunt­ing for Poke­mon will be busy at the 10th An­nual Ris­ing Sun Cham­ber of Com­merce Health Fair Fri­day at Grace Bi­ble Chapel.

“We’ll have spe­cial lures,” said Dr. Joseph Wei­d­ner, or­ga­nizer of this year’s fair. “We’ll have a new lure every half hour.”

The Health Fair, at the church at 1949 Biggs High­way, runs from 8 a.m. un­til 2 p.m. and Wei­d­ner said this year would be “a real packed house.”

“We have 54 ven­dors and a wide ar­ray of re­sources,” Wei­d­ner said Tues­day. “That’s as full as it can get.”


Free health screen­ings in­clude bone den­sity, oral can­cer, vi­sion, pul­monary func­tion and blood glu­cose.

Demon­stra­tions in­clude Ris­ing Sun Mar­tial Arts, The Hop­pin’ Hawks com­pet­i­tive jump rop­ing, Barnes Corner Fit­ness and Rebel Dance Fit­ness from Strength in Num­bers In­no­va­tions.

Safe­tyville, a pro­gram that teaches traf­fic safety to young­sters, will also be set up by the Ce­cil County Sher­iff’s Of­fice.

Also avail­able for $25 will be flu and pneu­mo­nia vac­cines. Bring your in­sur­ance card.

Wei­d­ner said at­ten­dees should ex­pect to go home with lots of give­aways and valu­able in­for­ma­tion.


The Ris­ing Sun Health Fair will bring to­gether a host of med­i­cal, health and fit­ness ex­perts to of­fer free in­for­ma­tion, screen­ings and ad­vice.
