Portland Church Offering Free Health Fair

PORTLAND - Those who make up the congregation of the First United Methodist Church in Portland believe that there is a connection between spiritual and physical health. Because of this, they are offering a Health Fair which will provide free health services to the entire family.

The event is happening this Saturday, August 16th from 9 AM until 3 PM at their building on 4545 Wildcat Drive in Portland. In addition to free refreshments and door prizes, medical personnel will be on hand to provide free sports physicals (for UIL, all Youth Leagues and Cheer) for children and youth. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive medical services.

For adults, there will be free medical screenings in areas that include hearing, vision, blood pressure, diabetes, vascular disease and depression, as well as free immunizations and booster shots.

Backpacks stuffed with school supplies will be given to the first 100 elementary school students who attend. Bicycle helmets will also be given away.

For more information, contact the church office (361) 777-2000.
