6th Annual Holiday Food & Fitness Expo - November 6, 2010

If you are a crafter or  artisan who lives in the Washington, DC metropolitan area here is a vending opportunity.  

Prince George’s County Health Department, in partnership with the Prince George’s County Public Schools, is hosting its sixth annual Holiday Food & Fitness Expo on November 6, 2010 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Wayne K. Curry Sports and Learning Complex located at 8001 Sherriff Road in Landover Maryland.

The purpose of the Expo is to promote healthy lifestyle behaviors in Prince George’s County, and reduce the incidence of diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.
Last year, over 1000 residents took advantage of the free health screenings, as well as medical and nutritional consultations. This year’s event promises to attract and engage hundreds of County residents in activities including healthy food tasting, cooking contests/demonstrations, and “dance your way to fitness” sessions.  We will also have “Ask the Expert” where the community will have the opportunity to interact with health care providers and fitness experts. The expo will host holiday gift/craft vendors. In addition, flu shots will be provided on site. (Appointment required)

We are seeking:
• Supporters willing to purchase advertisement space in our Program/Resource Directory                      
• Co-sponsors – financial or in-kind contributions (event costs, door prizes, volunteer refreshments, etc)
• Vendors – healthy eating (nutrition), physical fitness trainers, chronic disease management
Holiday Gift/Craft Vendors (a nominal $40 fee is required)
• Health Care Providers – as vendors or presenters for “Ask the Expert” component
• Volunteers – to assist with logistics on event day
• Restaurants to showcase health menu items

We hope you will be able to attend, participate and/or help us spread the word about this fantastic event.

For additional information, please contact Erin Bradley, Public Information Specialist for the Prince George’s County Health Department, at, 301-883-7851 or 1701 McCormick Drive, Largo, MD 20774.

This collection is inspired by my love for Christ and my favorite song at the moment "Justified" by Smokey Norful.   Here is a bit of the lyrics. . .

"Justified me, glorified me, paid my ransom and I've been redeemed by His blood Go to Calvary, I've been made free, despite my enemy, I thank God I'm justified."
