    This is a great thing for them to hold. I wonder if local community groups like Temples and such have been notified to get the word out to those that would appreciate this too.

      Mike, the organizer who contacted me indicated they were doing everything they could to get the word out; she is one of several graduate nursing students who have been working in the South Park community and was pointed our way by someone down there… we published it on our South Park site some days back but they thought it might be worth mentioning on WSB too if we got the chance, so here we are.

    Great to hear. I think it’s fantastic that they are reaching out and truly working with community groups that will be trusted and provide a welcome feel to those that will benefit from these services.

Sorry, comment time is over.
