Healthy Aging in Rural Towns (HeART) Project is leading Langlade County’s first senior fair from 11 a.m. to 1p.m. today at the Langlade County Fairgrounds.

The senior fair will have live music from Stone Soup Bros. The first 100 seniors from Langlade County, 60 years and older, will receive a free boxed lunch and info bag. The info bag has brochures, fliers and small gifts from organizations around Langlade County that support older adults.

“This is a great opportunity to come out and enjoy our first days of spring, hear a little music and just be with other people,” said Terri Johnson, Community Health Aging coordinator/ HeART Project.

The fair is a drive-up event. Attendees are asked to enter the fairgrounds at the south entrance and will be directed where to park. Radios can be tuned into 107.1 to hear the live music.

Anyone is welcome to bring their own lunch and listen to the music. Everyone is asked to be mindful of social distancing and to wear masks when in close contact with others.

Building a Healthier Langlade County Healthy Aging in Rural Towns (HeART) is a 2 1/2 year grant funded effort to help older adults live safely and independently. More information can be found at www.alcinfo.com/heart.
