The 2010 Health Fair and Readifest will be held at Spencer County High School this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., during which free school supplies and health screenings will be offered to the public.

Seventy different booths will be located in the hallways and gym of the high school. Registration will take place at the front door.

Any student enrolled in Spencer County Schools can come and receive free school supplies. Students, adults and senior citizens can also receive free health screenings and information.

The festival, which has been offered annually since the mid-nineties, is created through extensive community collaboration and is funded by numerous businesses around the community.

The event is expected to attract a large crowd, said Becky Wilson, coordinator of the Spencer County Family Resource Center. 

“Last year, we had about a thousand people come through.”

The entire event is free. Attendees are advised to allow at least one hour to participate in the event.
