The Liberal community has a chance to be more health conscious. Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. is the Community/Veteran Health Job and Education Fair in the Seward County Actitivy Center. The Seward County Health Department’s Elizabeth Irby says you get more bang for your buck at the health fair. “Probably the biggest thing that draws people is the blood work that is offered,” Irby said. “It’s about an 800 dollar value that’s being offered to women and men. Those tests now are costing 25 dollars.”
The fair resumed last year after an eight year hiatus. The fair grew from 200 people in 2001 to 600 people last year and 25 booths in 2001 and 64 booths last year. There are already around 80 booths for this year.
