Event Description:
To celebrate its 90th year, the Truckee Host Lions Club is sponsoring a community health fair that will offer free family health screenings from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sat., Sept. 24, at the Truckee Community Rec Center, 10981 Truckee Way. The health fair will include free vision, diabetes, and blood pressure screenings; free dental screenings and fluoride treatments offered for children; and free flu shots while supplies last. Lions in Sight of California and Nevada will provide free reading glasses to those who may need them, and Truckee Lions will give away organic produce to families who are screened at the health fair. Those who attend will leave with a confidential health checklist, and if requested, a list of referrals to medical resources in the area. Community groups also will have informational booths. For example, the Truckee California Highway Patrol Office and the Truckee Police Department will team up to offer free child safety seat inspections and assistance with installations. The agencies also will give away free child safety seats if a new one is needed while supplies last. Anyone with questions about the event can contact the Truckee Lions at (530) 563-6776. The Truckee Host Lions Club is sponsoring the health fair as to give back to the community as the club celebrates its 90th anniversary, said Lou LaManna, club president.
