Pocahontas Memorial Hospital’s Annual Youth Health Fair enjoyed another year of sunshine and fun on Friday, July 25th. With free food, door prizes, health related exhibits, lawn twister, dinosaur digs, and other games; there was truly something for everyone. Special guests included a clown troupe from Gesunheidt and Smokey Bear, who was presented a cupcake for his 70th birthday. Extremely popular this year was a snake exhibit by the US Forest Service and a helicopter landing by Air Evac. 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.
