Day-long health fair on Aug. 18 free and open to local folks

The Transformation Sunnyside group and its corporate sponsors will host a community health fair at Sunnyside's Central Park on Saturday, Aug. 18.

There are no admission fees to attend the day-long event, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Food and refreshments will be provided at no cost. Local families will also have access to the city pool, and games and prizes will be offered throughout the day.

From a health standpoint, individuals attending the health fair will be given the opportunity to undergo diabetes, vascular, dental and vision screenings.

Community service booths will also be set up to provide health fair attendees with information about such topics as food stamp and medical coupon eligibility, emergency assistance and other services that are available to maintain a healthy family lifestyle.
