HJV Highlights

February Meeting Recap

Hello Healthy Jurupa Valley Supporters! 

This month HJV guests had the opportunity to meet the amazing Saturday Morning Crochet Class from the Louis Robidoux Library. The group was recognized for their yarn storming efforts spanning over several months. If you would like to view the artwork please visit the library at 5840 Mission Boulevard, Riverside, CA 92509. As a reminder, the group meets every Saturday morning at 10 a.m. -- all skill levels are welcome!

 

HJV also had the great pleasure of reviewing the building process of Little Free Libraries with Master Carpenter, Jonathan McClure. Jonathan was kind enough to walk us through the process in advent of the building workshop on Thursday February 5, 2015. Twelve Little Free Libraries were constructed with the help of our fabulous community members.

 

Additionally, we heard about the anticipated Healthy Living Extravaganza that will be filled with free giveaways, raffles, health screenings, children activities, and more. The fun will take place on April 11, 2015 at Rancho Jurupa Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All the park amenities will be open and free for all to enjoy. Food vendors will be present with plenty of healthy options for purchase.

 

Vendors interested in featuring services, products, or amazing food should take advantage of the early vendor registration fees of $0. March 15th is the cut off date for early registration so don't delay!  Early vendor registrants are also encouraged to bring an in-kind donation valued at $50 for the community drawings. Lastly, non-profits with 501(c)3 status are invited to register free of charge.

 

Lastly, if you are looking for an opportunity to volunteer, look no further! The Healthy Living Extravaganza needs volunteers.
