We’ve heard from many people who indicated that the weather kept them away on Thursday. If you’d like to join the 2018 Better Body Challenge, we’d love to have you. For those who missed the original registration, you now have a second chance. Come for registration on Thursday, January 18, 2018 between 5 and 6:30 PM. For more information about the challenge, click here. If you’d like to print off your registration form and have it completed before arriving, you can get one of those here or at the DeSoto Public Library.
The kick-off for the 2018 Better Body Challenge will be Thursday, January 11, 2018. Mark your calendars. More information will be coming soon.
Lotions, lip balms, bath salts, etc. may now be sold at the Farmer’s Markets in Jefferson County as long as the following criteria are met:
- Contact Nancy Radoch with the Jefferson County Health Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) first for initial approval before they can sell their products at the markets.
- Each vendor must also contact Julie Vosilus, her information is below, regarding the product(s) to be sold. Julie will review the product ingredients. During the review time, that vendor may sell the products. No medical nor therapeutic claims may be made on the products. Each product the vendor sells must contain a complete ingredient label.
- Once Julie has reviewed the vendor’s products, she will determine if anything more should be done.
- Each vendor must email Nancy Radoch a complete list of the types of products they will be selling including all ingredients.
