The Shepherd Event and Self-Storage Center in Boardman, Ohio, will host a Health Fair on Oct. 10. Free to the public, the fair showcases local healthcare vendors who will pass out free samples, provide tips for a healthier lifestyle, and conduct free blood-pressure, eye, ear and stroke screenings. Giant Eagle will administer flu shots. The Bad Habit Monster truck will be on display, with the driver passing out free vitamin waters. There will also be multiple giveaways and drawings.
Formerly occupied by Sam’s Club, the 108,000-square-foot center opened in November 2007 and is owned by Joe Sylvester Jr. of Cleveland and a small group of local businesspeople. Approximately one-third of the building was converted into self-storage units. The remainder is used for long-term and seasonal vehicle storage.
Since the seasonal section of the facility is often vacant during the summer months when people use their vehicles, Sylvester uses the space for tradeshows, conventions and fundraising events. In May, the center will host an event for the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber as well as a rib fest. Plans also are in the works for a pet exposition, a beer and wine event, and possibly a Go-Kart race.
