The Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce is taking steps to good health as it gears up for the 31st annual health fair, set to run from 8 a.m. until noon April 13.
â€śThis event has been a successful event for the chamber in previous years and we are excited to be providing health information to the community once again through the help of our chamber members,â€ť Chamber Executive Director Debbye ValVerde said. â€śThere are so many health services right here in Big Spring and the health fair is one way we can showcase that.â€ť
As the Crossroads area begins to get into the heart of the severe weather season, area residents will get a chance to educate themselves â€” as well as become storm spotter â€” as the National Weather Service presents its annual SkyWarn class Thursday.
Set for 7 p.m. in the Big Spring City Council Chambers â€” located at 307 E. Fourth St., adjacent to City Hall â€” the class offers residents a plethora of information on storm situations and how to handle them.
