St. Joseph Hospital will be hosting a Lighten Up Nashua Celebration Party on Thursday, May 17, from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at the Nashua YMCA at 24 Stadium Drive. Participants will get to hear who the winners are from the First Session of the Lighten Up Nashua Campaign and learn more about signing up for the Summer Session. Participants of Lighten Up Nashua are encouraged to bring their weight loss in a matching food donation to be given to the NH Food Bank. Local vendors will also be available along with demos, door prizes and giveaways. You do not have to be a Lighten Up Nashua participant to attend the event.
