Successful Youth Health Fair Held

Despite ominous clouds all day on July 15th, the rain never came and Pocahontas Memorial Hospital’s Annual Youth Health Fair was a fun success. With free food, door prizes, health related exhibits, obstacle courses, golf chipping, and other games; there was truly something for everyone.  Special guests included HealthNet Aeromedical with a helicopter landing and tours, the Pocahontas Sheriff Department’s Safety Pup, and Smokey Bear.  Always a crowd favorite among both youth and adults, Roy Moose with the US Forest Service brought his live snake exhibit.  In addition, sports physicals were offered by the Rural Health Clinic at no cost to the student.  Pocahontas Memorial Hospital wants to thank all of the participants, exhibitors, volunteers, and staff for making the day such a success.  Much appreciation goes to all the businesses and individuals in the community who donated door prizes and food.
