Echo Pilot unveils special focus supplement in Greencastle-Antrim

JOYCE F. NOWELL

This could aptly be called Wellness Week in Greencastle-Antrim as the Echo Pilot unveils its first publication dedicated to the health, wellness and fitness of its readers and the Chamber of Commerce prepares for its first ever Family Wellness Fair.

The Echo Pilot’s Focus on Health, Wellness and Fitness is included in the Aug. 10 print edition as a special supplement. The chamber Family Wellness Fair will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13 in the Special Events Center.

“We are very pleased to be able to publish this guide for our readers,” said Kristy Yaukey, Echo Pilot general manager.

“We have long wanted to provide this kind of information for our readers, as well as give the health, wellness and fitness businesses in the area a forum to display and explain the services they offer. We are very pleased with how this guide turned out and feel it fulfills both of those goals.”

The Focus on Health, Wellness and Fitness includes a plethora of information from providers of health care, wellness services and fitness opportunities. The format of the booklet is also new for the Echo Pilot, in an easy-to-hold size with the pages bound.

“We are excited for our readers to see this special supplement. It is unique for us, including the fact that it is in full color. Each page provides not only lots of good information, but also a visually appealing product. Our hope is to continue to provide publications of this caliber.”

The cover of the publication is also unique as it includes all local photos. Items of local interest, such as a timeline of Greencastle-Antrim health care history, are also included in the guide. An index is also available on the cover.

Focus on Health, Wellness and Fitness is included in each copy of the Wednesday, Aug. 10 Echo Pilot. It will also be available free at the Family Wellness Fair.

“We knew we wanted to publish this kind of guide and when the chamber decided to go forward with its wellness fair, we knew it was time to move on it,” said Yaukey. “The publication and the fair can complement each other.

“And we are very happy to be able to distribute the guide at the fair. It will be a very valuable community event. We are looking forward to it.”
