ORANGE GROVE - The Orange Grove Junior High gym was packed with local vendors and community members for a health fair on Thursday.

The health fair was filled with parents and their children looking for vital information from booths such as the Department of State Health Services, Community Action of South Texas and more. The fair was a chance for parents and their children to learn the importance of nutrition and health as well as to familiarize themselves with programs in the local area.

Each booth was set up with informational brochures and healthy snacks to discuss the importance of each agency and how they help the residents.

The event's purpose is to bring the community to one place where families can ask important questions and get answers.
