On May 8, the RSU 20 After-school Program, with help from 4H Cooperative Extension, hosted Spring Into Health, a community fair featuring active fun, healthy food, summer programing, crafts, a book fair, safety information and more.

The after-school program is funded by the Maine 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant and has programs in Ames/Weymouth Elementary, Searsport Elementary and Middle Schools, East Belfast Elementary, and Captain Albert Stevens Elementary. All of the after-school programs are also Let’s Go! Waldo sites.

The fair was organized in keeping with the 5-2-1-0 message of fun physical activity, eating more fruits and veggies, promoting water as the best beverage, and limiting recreational screen viewing time.

There were plenty of families enjoying the beautiful evening and the events, and lots of happy kids!

Among the vendors and individuals helping with the fair were Belfast Co-op, Geoff Cyr, Belfast Public Health Nurse Ginnie Fanelli, Barb Cook, local Girl Scouts, Searsport Recreation and Fire departments and Ambulance, Patrick Walsh of Broadreach, Tanglewood 4-H and Learning Center, Gorest Glen Farms, and Jerry’s Tru Value, who donated a jump house.
