Our community showed it’s strong, caring spirit on behalf of families and residents on Saturday May 21st. A hard working collaborative of local organizations including the Keansburg Community Parent Support Group, Keansburg Schools, Keansburg Borough, The Monmouth County VNA, Monmouth County Health Dept., Father Time, along with many local Health and Wellness vendors- all rolled our Health and Wellness Fair on Bayview. Heavy rain was forecast but not a drop fell on our event!

Visitors could take advantage of free tree saplings provided by the town, learn about Yoga, speak with a pharmacist, a nutritionist, and many local mental health and social service representatives, including the Keansburg EMS crew. Four highly specialized mobile units from Meridian Health, The VNA, Centra State, and Horizon were right on site to perform a wide variety of diagnostic health tests The Fair was planned to coincide with the Father Time Fishing Derby, and drew many visitors from this event. Derby winner: Alex Garcia age 8!

Music, a DJ, popcorn, flavored ice, and cotton candy were provided to add to the community energy . Thank you to everyone who participated in Health and Wellness Fair as well as those of you who came out to partake!
