2018 Health Fair:
On Saturday, June 23 the CUMC parking lot was full of activity and people – it was GREAT! The Euro Market was in full swing on one end of the lot and the Crete Health & Safety Fair was successfully being held on the other end.
The CUMC Health Ministry Team really enjoyed interacting with the public and promoting good health. Many people stopped by to get their blood pressure checked and had their many questions about diabetes and other topics answered by our Health Ministry Team. The kids ( and adults too) were excited about seeing personnel of the Crete Police Department, a fire truck, an ambulance, and members of the Crete Fire Department, including our own Kyle Meyer.
Pictures were being taken, kids were coloring, and raffle tickets were being filled out. Crete United Methodist Church gave out free water, coffee, doughnut holes, plus a lot of great conversation! The weather was perfect, no rain and not hot! The day went very well and CUMC volunteers were there help with set up, having fun together, helping with the clean-up, and making the Health Fair a success. A special thank you from the CUMC Health Ministry Team to our church family and Fire Chief Michael L. Waterman for initiating this project.
