Industry hosts free family event highlighting health, security
Guardian Automotive will be celebrating 40 years of business in Newton County next year and has planned several events for employees and county residents as part of their continuing commitment to the local community.
On Oct. 18, Guardian will hold a free Safety and Wellness Fair for their employees and the general public. The fair will be held from 10 a. m. until 2 p. m. at the Guardian Automotive facility, located next to the new Wal- Mart on Industrial Blvd in Covington.
More than 30 ven - dors and community services will be participating w i th services ranging from blood pressure checks, manicures and pedicures, fire safety training and vision screening. There will also be many activities promoting a healthy lifestyle for the entire family like bounce houses, music, dancing, giveaways and a salad- eating contest. Plant tours and demonstrations are also scheduled.
Raffle tickets will be sold for $ 2 each for healthy living prizes including bikes, spa gift certificates and sportsrelated items. All proceeds from the raffle tickets will go to the Newton County Recreation Department’s Miracle League project.
The Miracle League program provides an oppor- tunity for children with mental and/ or physical challenges to play baseball. Fields are designed for wheelcha i r accessibility and with a specially designed rubber turf field. As part of their commitment to the local community, Guardian will also donate all monies from their recycling to The Miracle League.
