In celebration of National Health Center Week, Community Health Net will hold its annual patient appreciation picnic at the health center on 12th and State Streets, on August 18th from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. More than 400 people are expected to attend for great eats from the grill as well as snacks. Included in the festivities will be a mini- health-fair with several local agencies, and lots of cheer. The Community Health Net team enjoys spending time with its patients and their families during this casual event each year.

In addition to the National Health Center Week celebration, volunteers from General Electric will be on-hand with personal care packages they created for the homeless members of our community. The packages include various products, a tooth brush, toothpaste, water, dental floss and snacks. The personal care packages will be distributed during the week.

Our area seniors will participate in the annual senior breakfast on Tuesday August 15th, to share healthy living tips and activities.
