River Manor Health Fair Keeps Rollin’ Along

Local residents concerned about the state of their health had another opportunity to get a free check up at last Saturday’s annual Health Fair, sponsored and hosted by River Manor Care Center on East 103rd Street. Those who took advantage of the event got free advice and examinations for eyes, teeth, feet and other health concerns.
