ROCKLAND — The Knox County Health Clinic is holding a twentieth birthday party, Saturday, July 20, from 4 to 8:30 p.m., at MacDougal Community Park, in Rockland, and the entire community is invited.
Since its founding in 1999 the Clinic has provided 32,000 free or low cost medical, dental, and mental health and wellness visits to Knox County residents. It has also helped hundreds obtain access to free or affordable medications.
“This is worth celebrating!” said KCHC, in a news release.
The festivities will include dancing with the Hoodoo Man Band and lawn games for kids and adults. There will be food and drink from Hotdog Mafia, Baxter Brewing and Cellardoor Winery as well as non-alcoholic beverages.
There is no rain date, but there will be a tent.
This event recognizes the Clinic’s twenty years of work and all who have made it a success. Come learn more about the clinic. Bring your friends and family.
This event is free thanks to generous sponsors: Fisher Plow (Premier Sponsor), Camden Real Estate, Eastern Tire, Viking Lumber, First National Bank and Brooks Trap Mill.
Contributions also came from Baxter Brewing, Cellardoor Winery, Michaud Electric, Rockland Food Service, 250 Main Hotel, Shaws, Walmart, and the City of Rockland.
MacDougal Park is across from the First Universalist Church at the site of the old MacDougal Elementary School.
