Meridian’s Fam Fest to offer free school physicals, vaccinations, Safety Town

From The Star Press

MUNCIE, Ind. — Meridian Health Services’ Fam Fest will return on Thursday, July 14, with a back-to-school theme promoting health, wellness, family fun, safety and community resources.

The event will be held 1-5 p.m. at Southside Middle School, 1601 E. 26th St., home of Meridian’s School-Based Health Clinic.

Fam Fest is a free festival for all ages featuring:

  • Free health screenings, school physicals and vaccinations.
  • Food and drinks (while supplies last).
  • Community vendors.
  • Games, activities, prizes and entertainment.

Fam Fest attendees can also enjoy Safety Town, a miniature simulation of Muncie focusing on teaching children how to be safe citizens. Children can cruise through Safety Town on tricycles while learning more about community, traffic and Internet safety, as well as abstaining from drugs.

Meridian is seeking vendors to participate and share information in the Health and Fun Fair. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
