You are invited to the Tenth Annual Okeechobee Family Health and Safety Expo on Saturday, January 28, 2017. The Expo will take place at the Agri-Civic Center, 4601 Highway 710, Okeechobee, from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The 2016 Expo was a fun-filled, educational day for the more than the 2,000 people who attended. This year we want to offer additional health and safety displays, first responder vehicles, vendor booths, entertainment, food and giveaways. There is no charge to set up, eat lunch (while supplies last) or to attend the Expo. However, donations are appreciated!
We are inviting you to participate by setting up a vendor booth or by bringing a display for the community to see. We would love to see participation from everyone in the health and/or safety field. Profit and not-for-profit agencies and organizations will offer free health screenings or display items related to health and/or safety and offer demonstrations. Our target audience will range from young children to senior citizens. This is a great opportunity to share with Okeechobee what you have to offer! We are expecting more vendors and more participants this year so do not miss this Expo!
Please come out and educate our community on health and safety resources and the service you provide! If you would like to participate, simply complete and return the attached registration form and/or sponsorship form. To make a donation, make your check payable to our fiscal agent: Okeechobee County Fire Rescue Volunteers and mail to Erin Moore, Shared Services Network, 700 S.W. Second Avenue, Okeechobee, FL 34974. If you have questions, please feel free to call the co-chairs listed in the top of this letter. Thank you in advance for supporting Okeechobee and the Expo!
