PENTICTON - The Okanagan-Similkameen Healthy Living Fair Society plays host to an expansive healthy living forum, just in time for spring.

On Saturday, March 4, the Okanagan-Similkameen Healthy Living Fair returns to the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre.

The fair showcases organizations offering health related resources, products and services that support and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Art Hister takes to the main stage as keynote speaker at 9:15 a.m. and the trade and convention centre will be alive with activity demos, healthy eating sessions, healthy living assessment stations and over 55 information booths, all at no cost.

The Healthy Living Fair is also looking for volunteers, offering two shift options: from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m, and from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Volunteers can help out by acting in one of three different host roles for volunteers, helping out at the entrance, at a healthy living assessment station or by providing directional support on the trade show floor.

The Penticton Community Centre has volunteer forms available at the front desk, or a form can be completed online.

A volunteer coordinator will contact you once you have submitted your volunteer request.

An orientation session is scheduled for Tuesday, March 10 at 6 p.m. at the Penticton Community Centre in room seven.  Volunteers are asked to register their interest before the orientation.
