Report on Events:
The King Cove Clinic held its annual health fair on November 23, 2015. It was a great success with over 20 booths which included everything from a Strong Man Competition, Survival Suit Races, and Drug Booth to a Diabetes table, Germs table, Flu Shots, Nutrition table with fresh fruit, and life size operation table to Nolan the Colon. We had many health related games and education for all ages. The prizes we had this year were all health related. We had a Fitbit, Zumba Fitness Set, Punching Bag Set, Electronic Toothbrush, Doc McStuffin Operation Game for kids and even a round trip ticket to Anchorage. We had over 175 people come enjoy our fair, 133 people updated their registrations, and 24 people are now up-to-date on their flu shots! It was great fun for the people who attended and even for those who put it together. We would like to thank everyone who came and all of our donors and volunteers. We could not have pulled it off without all their support. We hope those who could not join us this year will have the chance to come enjoy our fair next year.
