ST. GEORGE — A free event is seeking to connect families in Southern Utah with an array of helpful organizations and agencies.

The “Heritage Elementary Community Health Fair” will be held Wednesday at the school, offering information booths to help educate families on resources relating to health, safety and wellness. The fair will take place in the school’s gymnasium from 1:30-7 p.m.

Heritage Elementary Principal Adam Baker encourages everyone to come learn and network.
