Lacombe County is excited to announce the return of the Spring Tune Up: Health and Safety Fair on April 1, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lacombe Memorial Centre. Anyone interested in their health and farm safety is invited to attend this free event, which will feature a variety of health care and safety professionals.
“We like to focus on safety and health BEFORE farmers get into their fields for the season, to remind them of the importance of caring for the physical, emotional and mental health,” explained Jalene Makus, Lacombe County Agriculture Coordinator and event organizer. “By bringing in vendors that support physical and mental health/safety, we are doing our part to support this important initiative and connect attendees with relevant and useful information.”
The event will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lacombe Memorial Centre on April 1. It is open free of charge to the general public. This year’s event features:
