    Greetings All,

    Just a reminder that this Monday coming, (the 18th of March) is the annual Wellness Fair event of the St Croix Wellness & Renewal’s Welln ‘us’ 50 Plus Program. The event is free and will be held on the 3rd floor of the Garcelon Civic Center.

    The event starts at 10am and we will be setting up before that time so please, wait until 10am, if you come early, enjoy the track.

    This is a drop-in style event and we will there until around 1pm. In the past, some folks stay all day, and some just stay for an hour or so, it’s up to you. There will be tables set up for socializing and snacking and we’ve been known to develop spontaneous conga lines to the mix of live and recorded music throughout the day.

    We will be having finger foods available (not a whole lunch).

    The track is the only exercise available that day for free.

    The days are getting longer, the sun is getting stronger….

    You may bring anyone you please (not just for seniors, although the information booths ARE directed at seniors audiences).

    Feel free to dress up, flaunt your stuff!! Our theme is welcoming the Spring! (St Paddy’s day theme is welcome too, in case you just haven’t gotten enough use out of your St Paddy’s day gear!!!)

    And…SPREAD THE WORD!

    See you Monday!

    Community Food Smart St. Stephen.

    We are excited to kick off a Community Food Smart program here in St. Stephen!

    What we are: Community Food Smart is a bulk food buying club for individuals and families keen on purchasing quality fruits and vegetables at affordable prices, sourced from local farmers when possible.
    Community Food Smart operates through a network of community partners who collect orders, provide volunteers, and distribute food bags to their members each month.
    Together, these partners donate their time and effort to make each area’s food buying club a success. 

    How do I join: Members can place an order for one or two fresh produce bags a month. The price of a food bag is $15. There is also a membership fee of $10. Please email one of our distributors to join.

    Getting involved: Volunteers help sort and pack bags for same day delivery, if you’d like to join the team please email rsnelgrovefood@gmail.com.

    Want to become a distributor? Email rsnelgrovefood@gmail.com for more information.

    What’s in a bag: Bags are brimming with produce carefully selected to ensure freshness, affordability and variety.
    We consider everything from what’s in season, what’s
    available at a fair price and what’s available from local farmers.
    Standard items include apples, bananas, oranges, potatoes, onions and carrots. The rest of the items will vary each month.

    Join our facebook group for more information.
