The ‘annual’ Veterans Memorial Hospital “Family Wellness Fair” returned in full this year on Wednesday, May 10. Visitors toured the Medical Clinic, Hospital and Gundersen Clinic in their route to the over 40 booths and educational displays and demonstrations provided by the numerous agencies who service Allamakee and northern Clayton counties as well as from nearly 20 hospital departments.
Entertainment for the evening included balloon artist Mike Chapman, face painting by Claire Butchkoski, Paramedic, a health career photo booth, and a fly-in with helicopter tours by Gundersen Air. In addition, a Waukon Fire Department fire truck and hospital ambulance were on site for all to view.
This family event is held each Spring on the hospital campus and is free and open to all members of the area communities.
