Seniors attended the health check event at Farmers Market Sept. 7.

The Farmers Market was bustling on Saturday, with regular market activities and the added bonus of Seniors Day during which senior adults had their blood pressure checked, talked with nurses, learned where their glucose levels were at, enjoyed a pancake breakfast (proceeds to Lions’ Seniors Housing project) and spent time visiting and learning about about various projects and services available to them, including the new walking program and health passport program which distributed 75 passports and more were requested. Organizer Sue Ferminger reported  the Lions served 244 breakfasts. At the first walk in the soccer facility Monday morning, 21 senior walkers took advantage of the opportunity.

“It was terrific to see so many people taking part on such a beautiful day,” she said.
