Sanford Health Fair is Thursday

Sanford Tracy is hosting its annual community picnic Thursday, May 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the O’Brien Court garage.

Grilled burgers, hot dogs, beans, and chips will be served.

Sanford medical providers will be on-call for a “Teddy Bear Clinic” at 5:30 p.m., for children to bring their favorite stuffed animal or doll for a free check-up.

The Tracy Ambulance Service and Tracy Fire Department will both have equipment on display in connection with the picnic.

Emergency responders will be available to answer questions.

Sanford Tracy is also offering a host of reduced-cost medical screenings.
