This Saturday September 21, the city of Garland moderates the 2013, “Healthy Living Expo,” inside the Curtis Culwell Center from 9 am. to 1 p.m. Located at 4999 Naaman Forest Blvd., an umbrella of activities, or perhaps expositions a more apt term, invite residents to participate in what the city determines healthy living. Greenthumbs will find this event disappointing.
Designed by the driving force of individual health screening, this event appears to be nothing more than an initial citywide pandemic prevention program; or a CPPP. Among the available individual health preventative measures - flu shots, cholesterol checks, bone density screening, deworming, delousing, and early-onset gingivitis detection; or EOGD. Available for a $100 fee, an EKG and blood pressure check are offered so bring the checkbook. Also available to the first 750 visitors to the free expo are a free, get ready for this...one genuine authentic healthy living expo tote bag. That’s right, the first 750 residents, only one per family, receive a tote bag, courtesy of the many sponsors and to be used in collecting all those wonderful pamphlets the expo has to offer.
Be sure to take advantage of the recycling bin at the far end of the building.
Garland police department will be on hand so all those with outstanding warrants are discouraged from participating.
For the Garland gardener, all we know at this point is the expo will have a volunteer sitting behind a small cardboard cutout booth distributing literature.
The city’s Water and Stormwater Management Department will sponsor a 5K race and a booth to bring about water conservation awareness within the community. It’s going to take a bigger contribution on the city of Garland’s part to conserve our Texas water than disseminating a handful of pamphlets.
The expo offers one shining array with an expired or unused medication collection station. Be sure to remove names and labels from the containers before entering the facility.
