Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital Safety Fair on October 30

WESTON, W.Va. – The anticipation is building for the 11th annual Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital Safety Fair in Weston, on Saturday, October 30, from 11 AM to 1 PM. Because of COVID-19 resurgence, the event will be in the back parking lot at 230 Hospital Plaza to accommodate social distancing. The goal of the Fair is to provide children with information to make safe choices and is coordinated by the Emergency Department.

A variety of local non-profits and agencies will provide an array of fun learning activities for children. For the first time at this event, the FBI will be providing a fingerprinting booth. This fingerprinting can help law enforcement in the event a child is involved in situations such as a disaster or a runaway event. The service is free and open to children up to 17 years of age and the child should be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The fingerprints are given to the parent/guardian for safekeeping and are not maintained by the FBI.

The Weston Fire Department will bring their Smokehouse to teach children about the proper reaction to a fire, and the Weston Police Department will provide safety tips. The 911 Center will be there to provide more fire safety information.

The Weston Rotary Club will be giving free smoke detectors to participants. The Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital Dietary Department will also provide free refreshments for families. Several other agencies will provide information for participants including Unicare and Aetna. Dr. Bruce Gorby will also be available for questions and information. Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital employees will also have information on healthy heating, physical activity, and handwashing.

Each participating family will be given a pumpkin and provided decorations for them. 

A Costume Contest will be held at noon. Names will go into a drawing for the various categories of Most Original, Scariest and Funniest, with age brackets of: 0-3, 4-7, 8-10, 11-13 with the Lewis County Interact Club coordinating the event.

To participate in the event please contact the Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital Marketing Department at 304-269-8167 or 304-517-8612.
