Good day, I hope you are well and will be enjoying a lovely Easter Sunday. It is one of my favorite times of year. This week I'd like to highlight an upcoming Family Fun Day for our veterans as well as a reminder for an opening on our Board of Health.
First, I'm excited to announce I'll co-host a Family Fun Day at Fountain Creek Nature Center on May 7 where we'll be grilling hot dogs for the participants from 11 a.m.-noon. The event is Saturday, May 7, from 10 a.m-2 p.m. at Fountain Creek Nature Center and includes outdoor activity stations, puppet shows, dinosaur fossils, bug sweeps, kite making, pond critters, crafts, and more. Participants can enjoy a free slice of pizza from Papa Murphy's or a grilled hot dog (I'll be working the grill that day). The event is FREE to active-duty military families with I.D., and reservations are recommended.
And, a reminder that the El Paso County Board of Commissioners is seeking community-minded citizen volunteers to serve on the El Paso County Board of Health. Applications for the open position are due by April 15, 2022. The El Paso County Board of Health is the governing body for El Paso County Public Health (EPCPH). The Board of Health governs the agency through the establishment of policy, approval of budgets, and appointment of the public health director. Regular Board meetings are typically held monthly on the fourth Wednesday of the month beginning at 8:30 a.m.
Board of Health regular meetings are on the first floor of the Citizens Service Center, unless otherwise indicated. Meeting dates, times and meeting agendas are posted on EPCPH's website, http://www.elpasocountyhealth.org. Meetings are open to the public. The Board of Health currently seeks one new member, who represents the nonprofit, private, or public education sectors. The volunteer application is at http://www.elpasoco.com and can be accessed at: https://bocc.elpasoco.com/volunteer. Thanks, God bless, and Happy Easter!
