LakeMarion Artisans will help sponsor the Summerton Health Fair, to be held at Clarendon District 1 Resource Center Gymnasium on July 29, 10AM to 2PM. All residents of Summerton and the surrounding area are invited to attend. Hope Health (formerly Black River Health) will be doing free screenings for diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure and BMI. Other organizations who will attend and give free information on health and well-being include American Red Cross, DHEC, Rape Crisis Center, Alzheimers Association, Agape Hospice, Wateree Community Action, Clarendon Women’s Shelter, Southern Lakes Physical Therapy, Dept of Social Services, McLeod Clarendon Hospital, DHHS, and more!
Sponsors besides the Gallery include the Resource Center, Hope Health and Bank of Clarendon. Hope Health is only charging us $5 per test, but we feel that even that small amount might preclude testing for folks on a fixed income. So, the Lake Marion Artisans Gallery 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is soliciting donations for the cholesterol testing.
