July 15 is Senior Citizens Day at the fair

Wednesday, July 15 will be Senior Citizens and Armed Forces Day at the Adams County Fair. In addition to free admission for those 62 and older and veterans and soldiers in uniform, activities are planned in the administration building beginning at 10 a.m. and concluding with a performance by the Liberty Band at 2 p.m.

Arrive early and visit the Appalachian Hope Van for free cholesterol screenings which will begin at 9 a.m. You will get immediate results and it’s ideal if you have not eaten anything in the morning before the test. It’s okay to have water, black coffee or black tea.

The Senior Day activities will begin at 10 a.m. with a variety of fun activities as well as sessions on health and wellness and time to visit the informational displays and talk with a variety of agency and business representatives. Jeff Newman will provide entertainment at 11:30 a.m., a nutrition lesson with a healthy recipe tasting will be offered at noon, and the Fancy Free Cloggers will perform at 1 p.m. Each agency participating will also offer a door prize which will be drawn for at approximately 1:45 p.m.

For the second year, Prather’s IGA and the Adams County Senior Fair Board will be donating a gift certificate to the oldest man and oldest woman present and the longest married couple present. These awards will be presented immediately after the door prizes at 1:45 p.m., with winners being selected from those present at that time.

The air-conditioned administration building is a comfortable place to hang around and hear the Liberty Band perform at 2 p.m. to wind up the activities for the day. Although participants will likely want to try some of the delicious fair food, many bring a cooler with a packed lunch so they don’t have to leave the cool building once they arrive, so don’t let the heat keep you away. Wal-Mart is also again donating bottled water which will be available to program participants throughout the day as well as the ingredients to prepare a healthy recipe for participants to sample.

These activities are sponsored by the Adams County Senior Fair Board with the assistance of many agency representatives and the generosity of local businesses from throughout Adams County.
