Waseca Wellness Day

Waseca Public Library will host Waseca Wellness Day on Saturday, November 16th from 9 am-1 pm. The free event is designed to encourage healthy living, reduce stress, promote social connectivity within the community, and create positive transformations. From sleeping better to fitness, from coping techniques to stress reduction, attendees can choose which wellness skills they want to learn.

Sessions are led by local businesses and organizations, library staff, and community members. Community members can enjoy these “tester” sessions with local organizations and individuals to find out what works for them. Staged at various locations in the library, multiple sessions will take place at the same time. Stop by Waseca Public Library for a schedule.

Free and open to the public. This event is a Vision 2030 Project. A drawing for wellness raffle prizes will take place after the keynote speaker.
