A large crowd of children and parents gathered Saturday morning for the yearly back to school health fair held at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County.
Undeterred by the heat outside, bounce house fun was a hit with the boys and girls. Children and parents alike, stood in line for popcorn, sno cones, hotdogs and ice cold soft drinks.
There was an array of community helpers from local law enforcement, volunteer fire departments and medical workers to share safety tips with the kids and allow the little ones to tour the vehicles. Attendees even got a chance to climb inside the hospital helicopter.
Inside, with cooler temperatures, crowds gathered around various booths for free medical screenings including vision, dental and general health checkups. Backpacks filled with goodies were passed out to each child.
There was a little something for everyone at the fair, great resources available, all at absolutely no cost to the parent; a wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning with the kids!
