With great anticipation, every year Toledo looks forward to the True Vine Missionary Baptist Church Career and Health Fair. Under the vision of True Vine's pastor, Rev. Cecil Jerome Graham, the goal of this event is to make provisions for a better life according to Biblical principles, Genesis 22:14.
This fair is as an Outreach Ministry that serves the community with both natural and spiritual needs.
The 6th Annual Career and Health Fair took place Saturday, June 8, 2019. The growth of this popular fair caused True Vine to move off of church grounds and seek out a larger setting to host the event. This year's fair was held at Woodward High School. The gorgeous weather attracted a huge turnout. The fair serves the community by offering free blood pressure and sugar screenings, hearing screenings, free refreshments and door prizes. The Toledo Fire Department was on hand supplying free, life-saving smoke detectors. A Bounce House and face painting provided a fun time for the children. The Toledo Fire Department delighted the kids with the opportunity to climb aboard a fire engine while the Christian Faith Riders gave motorcycle rides.
Over 30 vendors, businesses owners and Community Partners filled the schools large cafeteria offering a variety of merchandise and services. Sam's Club, Costco, Home Depot, Competition Corvette Club and radio station WIMX, Mix 95.7 are just a few that were on hard to provide information to attendees. A live DJ kept the atmosphere fun and upbeat while guests networked and gained information regarding health and careers. The True Vine Missionary Baptist Church Career and Health Fair takes place annually on the 2nd Saturday of June.
