Event will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lacombe Memorial Centre on March 10

Lacombe County is excited to announce its fourth annual “Spring Tune Up” event on March 10, 2020. Anyone interested in their health and farm safety is invited to attend this free event, which will feature a variety of health care and safety professionals.

“We like to have the Spring Tune Up Health and Safety Day land close to the Canadian Agricultural Safety Day in March of each year,” explained Jalene Makus, Lacombe County Agriculture Coordinator and event organizer. “By bringing in vendors that support both physical and mental health/safety, we are doing our part to support this important initiative and to connect attendees with relevant and useful information.”

“Each year, we strive to find relevant vendors to bring value to this event – ones that are of interest not just to our rural producers, but to anyone interested in their health and safety,” said Jalene.

Everyone who attends the event will have their name entered for door prizes. The organizations who will be on-site for this year’s event include:

  • Building Bridges to Health Naturally (blood analysis)
