SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Save the dates for the second annual Springfield Wellness Week! Sunday, March 24 through Saturday, March 30, the Springfield community will be hosting a series of health and wellness related activities – free and open to the public! Activities will take place at various locations, including the Springfield Town Library and the Edgar May Rec Center.
We’re excited to, once again, bring this collaborative event to the community to showcase the many health and wellness resources available in our area. Attend fun and engaging activities, classes, and presentations. Learn and experience more about what health and wellness means for you. Tai Chi, healthy food options, financial wellness, art, live music, and spiritual wellbeing are just some of the offerings featured at this year’s Springfield Wellness Week.
