There will be a bounce house, a pitch, hit and run game, Money Pit BBQ trail— er and Silver Junction will be serving snow cones and several dif- ferent booths. Booths range from Sidney Health Center, Fink Dental Center, Sidney Eye Care, Reynolds, LYREC and more. The Lions Club will also be at the event doing free eye exams. One of the sponsors, Fink Dental Center said they chose to be a part of the Healthy Kids Expo because it was a chance to ed- ucate both kids and adults. “Having a good foun- dation of oral health is important at a young age,” said MaKayla Donahue, dental hy- gienist of FinkDental. Dr. Erin Fink added that education is very important. “Our most important job is educa- tion and this is a good way to educate on a broad scale.” She noted that edu- cating parents on hy- To all mothers who love deeply and bring a new life into the world . . .

Donahue said'it’s a great event since the Herald was able to get all aspects of health care by having the hospital, the eye doc- tor and themselves. “It’s cool that you get all of them in one place,” Donahue said. “I think this is also a good community event. It’s a good thing to do,” Fink said. Sidney Herald Pub- lisher Kelly Miller ex- plained that she chose to host this event after having talked to Elaine Stedman, CEO of the Boys and Girls Club. “She told me that during the summer there are kids that don’t have lunch. Peo— ple think that everyone here makes $90,000 a year, but there are peo- ple in our town that struggle. That’s why I thought this would be a good idea. We can get people resources they need,” Miller said. “I just thought it would be fun and it’s also a good way to meet some new businesses.” and prayers. 15m
