  • The Mora Health Fair was held last Thursday in the Mora High School gym. There were many tables set up to let the public be aware of the many areas of health care that are available to them. Each table had an abundance of literature and “goodies” that included pens, pencils, key chains, bags, note pads and even fly swatters and more. They had their logo or theme on them as part of marketing their health care services.

    There were a couple of areas set up so that the people could get their vital signs taken. Advice was given where it was needed.

  • Probably one of the most exciting events in a girl’s life is the day she gets her own horse. I’ve been there and done that, more than once.
