Hundreds of people converged on the Naden Athletic Centre last Thursday to check out more than 120 local vendors offering education, recreation and wellness products and services. Organized by the Lookout newspaper, with support from the Base Personnel Selection Office, the event was in direct support of the base’s growing health and wellness movement. Big thanks to sponsors Hotel Grand Pacific and Laser Centers for Health, whose financial contribution made it possible to offer 500 free meals for Deadbeetz and Street Car Named New Orleans Food Trucks and free coffee from Serious Coffee.
