The Masons will do their CHIP ID program - providing each parent with a dvd with information on their child in the event a child goes missing. This is provided FREE. The Lions will be holding eyescreenings in their eyemobile which will be located in the parking lot in front of the building. There will be BMI screenings, blood pressure screenings, and a diabetic nurse on site to answer questions.

Edible Arrangements will also be onsite in the outside parking lot near the Eyemobile selling tasty fruit treats for a nominal fee.
The Sunshine Gals, who provide free lunch, one Saturday a month, will be running the food concession. All monies raised at that concession help support their program.
