Stacey Solt/TIMES NEWS Mindy Graver, chairperson of Carbon County Safe Kids, asks Nicholas Zeigenfuss and his classmates if they can tell the difference between Arm & Hammer baking soda and carpet cleaner, showing them only the back of the package. Many students guessed incorrectly. Zeigenfuss is a second-grade student at Shull-David in Lehighton.

The Lehighton Rec Center was filled with giggles and laughter last week. It was the sound of learning.

Nearly 350 children attended the 24th annual Children's Health Fair, hosted by Blue Mountain Health System. The health fair was open to children from preschool through second grade.

"We want to give the children a good start, by teaching them healthy habits," said Mary Lou McGeehan, community education coordinator at Blue Mountain Health System. "We try to make it fun and interesting. They're learning about health and safety, but in a fun way."
