'When you tie in a cultural aspect to healthy habits, you’re engaged more': APIA's Unalaska Health Fair Starts FridayThe Unalaska Health Fair starts Friday, April 21. The focus of the 2023 fair is creating a cultural base for wellbeing, ranging from behavioral health services and elder care to traditional foods. “I really believe that when you tie in a cultural aspect to healthy habits, you’re engaged more,” said Courtney Edwards, health promotion and wellness events coordinator for the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association.
There’ll be about two weeks without community access to the library, as city staff transfers collection materials and puts finishing touches on the new permanent space. During the closure, library patrons can return materials to the book drop at the new building.
The free event — featuring food, music, and artwork — will run Saturday, April 1, from noon to 5 p.m. PCR Recreation Manager Albert Burnham said there’ll be 24 vendors set up at the community center: “Various food, information, folks selling stuff. A lot of folks who are trying to draw attention to the things they’re doing in town. Folks who are trying to raise money or just selling their wares.”
