Alaska Health Fair Schedule & More
BY SUE PERLES
We hope you are enjoying the wonderful weather! Here are a few quick updates about what’s happening at the Alaska’s oldest Health Fair organization. 🙂
Our Health Fair Schedule, Fall 2015 is now available on our website. We have a busy season ahead of us, with 25 Health Fairs planned for the next few months in many parts of Alaska. Share our schedule with your friends and family, and bring them to the Health Fairs with you. Don’t forget to mark the dates in your calendar. We look forward to seeing you this Fall!

Our Superhero Campaign is in full swing! What can we possibly have in common with Superheroes? Well, it’s actually more about you… Click here to learn more. Also, if you like what you see, please help us spread the word: share our campaign efforts on your Facebook. Thank you for your support!
Consider volunteering at Health Fairs or providing Health Education to Alaskans. We have been in business for over 35 years, but AHF would not be here without our volunteers and health educators. Our volunteers and health educators would tell you, it feels good to be part of Health Fairs. Follow this link to register to volunteer at AHF events. If you have a business or a nonprofit and would like to inform Alaskans on a particular health topic or promote an important cause, please follow this link to become an exhibitor. There is no cost involved.
For those of you who attended our events, can we ask you to answer this unbelievably short survey? It will help us improve and serve Alaskans even better. It will literally take a minute. We appreciate your time. Big thanks! Click here.
For more information, please contact our offices.
Looking forward to seeing you this Fall!

The Marx Bros. Café
Jack Amon and Richard “Van” Hale opened the doors of the Marx Bros. Café on October 18, 1979; however, the two had already been partners in cuisine for some time, having created the Wednesday Night Gourmet Wine Tasting Society and Volleyball Team Which Now Meets on Sunday, a weekly evening of food and wine. It was actually the end of the weekly event that spurred the name of the restaurant: hours after its final service, Amon and Hale were hauling equipment and furnishings out of their old location and to their now-iconic building on Third Street, all while managing arguments about equipment ownership, a visit from the police, and quite a bit of wine. “If you’ve ever seen the movie ‘A Night at the Opera” starring the Marx Brothers, that’s what it was like,” Hale explains.
