Free health, safety fair Friday at Forest View Elementary
EVERETT - The New Year is an opportunity to create a healthier and safer lifestyle, and on Friday, Jan. 25 at 6:30 p.m., Forest View PTA invites the community to a free “one-stop-shop” to help busy families make these positive changes. The event will be held at Forest View Elementary School, 5601 156th St. SE.
Attendees will find more than 25 information booths on a wide range of topics, such as after-school team and fitness programs, family-oriented health clubs, biking paths and easy indoor bike training tools, disaster preparedness, dental health, children’s nutrition, self-defense, naturopathy, bike helmet and car seat safety, home fire safety, healthy/easy food options and much more. 
“We specifically targeted some of the less traditional sports and fitness opportunities, because not every child is destined for a soccer or baseball team. We offer connections to fencing, competitive jump roping, yoga, gymnastics, golf, dance, lacrosse, Tae Kwon Do and more.  There are so many possibilities for fun and fitness and we want families to have lots of choices,” said Laura Peterson, Forest View PTA president.
Many of the booths will have activities for children — interactive exercise demonstrations, crafts, coloring work sheets to help them learn, and parents will appreciate the expert consultations and sign up options.  “We want the kids to have fun and learn something valuable while the parents get all this great information,” Peterson said. “Passports” will be given to the children to check off the activities they participate in and can be turned in for a door prize drawing at the end of the evening. The first 200 children to turn in a passport will also earn a Presidential Active Lifestyle Patch and certificate.
Forest View PTA has assembled experts to reveal the latest strategies from local emergency responders for home and personal safety, as well as creative tools to increase your children’s nutrition through a unique “Eat the Rainbow” campaign.  A free Healthy Food Sample Center will allow parents to give their children permission to sample new and delicious options for after school snacks and breakfast.  Dream Dinners will supply tastes of their easy family meals to encourage parents to create home-cooked meals instead of heating food from a plastic bag or from a drive-thru window.  Jamba Juice will sell their smoothies for $2.
The evening concludes with 10-minute demonstrations on several sports such as fencing, self-defense and competitive jump roping and then at 8:30 p.m. door prizes will be drawn.
