Sportsmen Turn Out Big For Health Fair
With the start of hunting season upon them, sportsmen turned out at the Medical Center’s annual Healthy Sportsman Health Fair to get their free health screenings. The annual fair held on Sunday, September 25, was once again located at the Medical Center’s campus at 214 Peach Orchard Road, McConnellsburg. More than 200 men, women and children came out to evaluate their overall health, taking advantage of over a dozen screenings provided by the FCMC and local healthcare providers.
Not only did they receive a snapshot of their overall health, they had a chance to land a BIG GAME Triumph tree stand sponsored by McLaughlin’s Drug Store and a Fenwick fishing rod and Quantum reel sponsored by Jack Steele Family Dentistry. The grand-prize winners were Judy Hinds and Rachel Clark.
Also during the day, food donations were accepted by the Fulton County Food Basket. Each donor received a free T-shirt compliments of the following sponsors: Back Country Bad Boys, Whitetail Resort, All Things Automotive, Jack Steele, DMD, Family Dentistry, McLaughlin’s Drug Store, FCMC, MacDonald’s Pharmacy and Recreational Equipment Inc.
FCMC would also like to thank the following who provided displays, screenings and education for the community: Blue & Gray Relic Shop, DCNR, Fulton County Pistol and Gun Club, Fulton County Food Basket, Tri- State, Dr. Joey Lane, Dave Kauffman with All About Hearing Aid Service, Burnt Cabins Grist Mill, Dignity At Home, American Cancer Society, REI, VA Hospital of Martinsburg, McConnellsburg Volunteer Fire Co., Tri- State Community Health Center, Clark’s Custom Etching, Greg Feaster and his exotic and native snakes, and the Fulton County Chamber of Commerce.
FCMC reminds sportsmen to mark their calendars for next year’s event, which will be held the last Sunday in September, Sunday, September 30, 2012.
