Local briefs (7/3/10)

RUSSELL — Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital, in conjunction with Summer Motion, will offer a health fair from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday in Central Park.

Health screenings will include cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar evaluations, body fat analysis and lung function testing. Information concerning hospital services will be provided both days and OLBH will be offering fun activities for kids provided by Bellefonte Pediatrics and Bellefonte Pediatric Rehabilitation.

The OLBH Green Team will be at Summer Motion and will take donations of medical supplies in good condition. These supplies will be donated to Caring Partners International to be distributed to countries in need all over the world.

Additionally, the OLBH Green Team is asking that visitors to the OLBH tent at Summer Motion bring their used cell phones to donate. OLBH partners with the recycling company, Recellular, to collect old cell phones. With each phone that is recycled, Recellular provides one hour of talk time for a U.S. soldier.

Visitors to OLBH’s Summer Motion offerings can register for door prizes and other giveaways.
