The Labor/Management Health Care Coalition of the Upper Midwest invites you to join us at the 2017 Labor Health & Benefit Fair, held this year at U.S. Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings. The date is April 8 from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. This is a free event for union workers and working families.
The Labor Health & Benefit Fair is a family event and features activities for all ages. Doctors, nurses, and pharmacists will be on hand to answer questions, and many of our sponsors will offer screenings such as blood pressure checks, mammograms, and artery/vein screenings. Take a moment and walk through the inflatable heart, lung, brain, and colon to see how these marvelous organs function to keep you healthy.
There will be continuous first aid demonstrations as well as service organizations that can offer information and assistance in a variety of areas.
Starting at 9:00 a.m. and continuing every half hour thereafter, there will be healthy cooking demonstrations featuring Easy, Healthy and Packable Snacks; Fast Family Dinners; In- Season Lunches; and Gluten Free. Talk with the chefs from Cooks of Crocus Hill to ask specific questions.
The Kidz Zone will feature two bounce houses, one for smaller toddlers and one for the older kids. Plenty of seating will be available while the kids jump and play. Quieter activities, including coloring, Legos, and face painting, will also be available for those lower key kids. Balloon artists and a close-up magician will be out mixing with the crowd for your entertainment. Part of the actual playing field will be open, so you’ll get to feel what it’s like to stand on the field and look into the seats…pretend you’ve just scored the winning touchdown! Don’t forget to have your picture taken with Goldy Gopher or Viktor the Viking.
The Labor Health & Benefit Fair is the largest of its kind in the nation and is open to all union and non-union laborers and their families, free of charge. Don’t forget that this event participates in “give back to the community” initiatives. Roll up your sleeve at the Memorial Blood Center’s bloodmobile and you’ll receive a free ticket for a guided tour of the stadium. You can also get a tour ticket by being one of the first 250 people to bring a donation of three or more non-perishable items for The Food Group.
Several Taft-Hartley union funds will have hospitality areas with refreshments and a chance to meet friends and union leaders. Many of the funds will also be giving away tour tickets. Be sure to check with your fund to see how you can score a ticket!
Help us celebrate the Labor Health & Benefit Fair, Saturday, April 8, at U.S. Bank Stadium. We’ll see you there!
