Check-in was the first step as people came to the Health Fair to have blood screenings Saturday.

Another Greeley County Health Fair is in the books and, thanks to everyone who took part, it was a success. A huge thank you to Christy Hopkins, Sheryl Crotinger, Barb Harris, Monica Slattery, Jerri Young, and Connie Shafer for serving at the registration table. These ladies did an amazing job! Around 150 people registered to have blood drawn by the very skillful ladies from the hospital lab. Thank you to Kathy Krayca, Trista Shafer, Sherri Stone, and Megan Berggren. A big thank you to Icenia Yanez for helping process the draws and keep track of all of the paperwork that goes with that. There were many interesting booths available for fair-goers to peruse and it was great to see all of the conversations being had by people in the community. Joyce Huddleston led VFW volunteers David Huddleston, Pat Brunswig, Joan Tubbs and Mary Lane as they provided their talents manning the food area and serving tasty treats. We express our gratitude to all of these people. Special thanks to the Extension Office for their help before, during and after the fair. So much of what must be done to make the Fair possible is not visible but so necessary, and thanks to Todd Schmidt and Kathy Nolan, the work gets done. You are appreciated. The winners of Greeley County Health Department drawings were Debbie Long, Charles Warner, Octavio Vazquez, Joan Tubbs, Mary Lane, Idalia Chanez, Ginger Gibson, Eric Lobmeyer, Annaleigh Long, Lilly Durham, Kimber Lobmeyer and Jacob Hernandez. Congratulations! We will mail your test results to you as soon as they are received from Quest Labs. Please check our Facebook page for updates or give our office a call at (620) 376-4200 if you have not received your lab results by next week. When you support your local Health Fair, you support Greeley County. Thank you for your help in this great community cause. – Melissa Miller, Greeley County Health Department Office Manager
