COA Hosts Health And Wellness Fair

by Alan Pollock

BREWSTER – Whether it means getting proper nutrition, being safe around the home, getting health screenings or mental health support, living well is a goal everyone can share. So while it was the council on aging that hosted the third annual Health and Wellness Fair Friday, there were plenty of offerings for people of all ages.

“We are trying to be a little bit more multigenerational,” COA Program Coordinator Annie Rapaport said. To that end, around 35 different organizations and groups staffed displays in the parish hall at the Brewster Baptist Church, spilling out into the lobby. If the event continues to expand, it might need a larger venue in the future, Rapaport said.

The displays were presented by a host of social service agencies, medical providers, public safety officials and businesses.

“It all points toward wellness, one way or another,” she said.
