Local Health Group Offers Free Wellness Festival

A full day of free health classes is in the offerings for this weekend in Sheridan County. Leslie Stratmoen has the details.


A local health organization has planned a full day of classes this weekend that are free and set up like an open house, which means people can come and go on their own time or stay for the entire event, which runs from 8:30-3 on Saturday.

Michelle Fritz of the Wellness Council of Sheridan that's hosting the Wellness Festival said there will be 25 local health and wellness experts speaking on various topics. She said they're addressing the issue of wellness from a holistic approach, which typically means mind, body and spirit. She said exhibitors will be interactive and there will be games and activities for the entire family.

To kick off the festival, they've invited nationally known speaker and author Jones Loflin, who said he'll be talking about “juggling elephants.” So when I had a chance to speak with him during the Public Pulse news talk show, I asked him what that means.

He went on to say he'll be providing a formula to live by to help you achieve that happy and well balanced life.

There is a charge for his talk tonight. The tickets are $20, available in advance at Journeys Center of Wellbeing on South Main Street in Sheridan. His talk starts at 6:30 in the Whitney Building at Sheridan College, the same place where the wellness festival will be held on Saturday.
