DOH-Putnam - The Beat goes on…. More ways than one

October 08, 2019

Palatka, Fla. - Putnam County takes huge strides in making a Heart Healthy community with the first ever 100% tobacco free event: the 2019 Bartram Frolic. Kicking off the event was the DOH-Putnam's 5th annual Heart Healthy 5K walk/run/frolic on Saturday September 28th.

The Frolic continued with historic re-enactors, tall tales and educational opportunities through-out the day. We are so proud that the Bartram Trail Society took the lead in making changes one step at a time. Kudos to Jennifer Ramos-Gagne, our Tobacco Coordinator on this accomplishment.
