Lacey Vollmer of Huntingburg balanced her son, Henry, 5, on her feet during a yoga session led by Erin Rauscher of Huntingburg at the Book, Health & Science Fair at Holland Elementary School on Tuesday. Rauscher, a yoga instructor and owner of Yes Power Yoga in Huntingburg, said the yoga lesson was all about “connection to family, unplugging from electronics, being together and exploring creativity. Yoga allows you to tap into the creative part of your brain.”


Holland Elementary second-grader Damian Arnold, right, tried on an oxygen tank after Holland Volunteer Fire Department firefighter Corey Weiter helped him lift it up during Tuesday's fair. "It was heavy, I couldn't walk," Damian said. The fair included safety lessons, student science fair projects, healthy snack lessons, yoga instruction, and a book fair.


Jovi Kirk of Holland, 3, played with VEX Robotics pieces from the Robotics Club stand at Tuesday's fair. Holland Elementary School teacher Jeremy Marshall said the best part of the Robotics Club is the "hands-on engagement and problem-solving skills."


Laney Bardwell of Huntingburg, 9, took a deep breath at the end of the yoga lesson during Tuesday's fair.


Weiter offered his hat for Oliver Jones of Holland, 2, to try on at Tuesday's fair. Jones' grandmother Toni Jones of Huntingburg, left, said her grandson was "not too crazy about the (fire engine) horn, but he likes the lights."
