To the Editor:

South Putnam schools hosted the third annual health fair on Thursday, March 22. It was a great day of fun and learning for our students.

The Fillmore Elementary Drama Club got the fair started by performing a skit called "The Healthy, Human Helper Contest" that was informing as well as entertaining. Kudos to all of you.

I want to thank the following participants for sharing their time and instruction with us: Tammy Page with Family Support Services, Dental Health with Dr. Hennette's Team, Operation Life, the Putnam County Health Department, the American Red Cross, the Indiana State Police and Putnam County Tobacco Prevention.

Thank you also to the following who provided door prizes: Chicago's Pizza, Burger King, Wendy's, Long John Silver's and to the many individuals that donated items from each school (Reelsville, Fillmore and Central).

I would also like to say thank you to Mrs. Carol Emery, who, as school counselor, organized this wonderful event for the South Putnam third-graders that is now a longstanding tradition.

Thanks again!
