I want to acknowledge the wonderful people who participated in South Lincoln Medical Center's annual Health Fair. This year we had more than 800 people attend the Health Fair; 45 screening and information booths, and completed 1012 Health Fair panels for people. These are amazing numbers for a community this size. I would like to thank the South Lincoln Training and Event Center for letting us use their facility and the great people there that had everything ready for us.
The vendors who sponsored booths at the fair did a tremendous job. The fair would not be the success it is without the many people who come to educate and assist us with our health and safety needs. Thank you to the many businesses and vendors that were so generous in donating door prizes. We gave away 141 door prizes. We appreciate Lincoln County Search and Rescue's assistance with the landing of the LifeFlight and Guardian Flight helicopters. Thank you to the Fire Department for bringing the fire truck, the ladder was a huge hit for our patrons.
We would also like to thank the crash test dummies for joining us as well as Pinkie the Elephant.
Thank you to our wonderful EMS crew for helping in the collection and all our wonderful employees and volunteers of SLMC who donated their time and expertise to make the Fair a great success. A special acknowledgement goes to our Family Practice Medical Staff who attended the Fair. We are truly blessed to have these dedicated healthcare providers. They have taken to heart our motto, "Caring for our Community." All in all thank you to everyone who was involved in making the Health Fair a great success!
I can't forget all the people who attended Health Fair! I'm so glad you stopped by and I hope you learned something new, had a good time, and are committed to making healthy choices for you and your family. We hope to see you all again next year.
