This year’s local Earth Day and Health Kids Day celebrations will be combined on the same day at the same location.
A news conference was held this morning to unveil specifics of the celebration to be held Saturday from 11 until 3 at Hopkinsville Community College.
The two commemorations are to promote a healthier and more environmentally friendly lifestyle in Hopkinsville and Christian County.
The local YMCA hosts the Healthy Kids Day event each year and Membership Director Kristen Lilly says there will be plenty of fun activities and food for the children.
Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp said recent studies show Hopkinsville and Christian County continue to have a culture of poor health choices and says this week is a good starting point for adults wanting to make better decisions regarding their bodies.
Hopkinsville Electric System, the Health Department and Ag Extension Office are also very much involved in the event, which is once again Saturday from 11am until 3pm at Hopkinsville Community College.
