Trinity Christian College was pleased to host the Palos Heights Community Expo and Health Fair 2007. The event, held Saturday, March 31, featured 75 exhibitors and drew nearly 600 visitors to the campus.

Those attending enjoyed free health tests and screenings, food, music, demonstrations and children’s activities, including clowns, a balloon sculptor and face painting. Exhibitors enjoyed the event, as well.

“It was a fabulous experience,” said Cathy Maier, a local RE/MAX realtor. “It was wonderful to connect with so many members of the community.” Being on campus was a little like coming home for the former Trinity faculty member, who taught Microsoft computer applications at the College several years ago.

Another exhibitor, Dr. Alex De Jong of Primary Health Associates in Orland Park, Illinois, commented that it was one of the best expos he had ever attended. De Jong, whose father served as the first president of Trinity, helped represent Sportlink, which offers cardiac screening for youth.

Providing shuttle service for guests were students Kristin Bolan ’08 of Brookfield, Wisconsin, Esther Peters ’07 of Villa Park, Illinois, and Lisa VanGroningen ’08 of Hudsonville, Michigan. Keith Kosmal ’09 of Midlothian, Illinois, worked as the event photographer.

The expo was sponsored by the Palos Heights Chamber of Commerce. Chamber Board of Directors member Tom Foley had two roles at the function. He served as the event chairman and was also an exhibitor. Foley is a partner and employment counselor for The Emily Agency, specializing in caregiver placement for the elderly.
