GNADENHUTTEN -- Once again, Trinity Hospital Twin City's United Volunteer Auxiliary, with the help of hospital employee volunteers, is providing free blood pressure screenings from 8 am to noon at the Gnadenhutten farmers' market. The market takes place at the downtown square every Saturday from July 11 through Sept. 26.

During three years of offering these free blood pressure screenings, the volunteers have conducted close to 1,300 screenings, and they hope to provide a total of at least 500 screenings by the time the market closes for the season.

"We feel it is important to provide services to the community to show our appreciation for all the support area residents have provided to us by making purchases at our fundraisers and participating in our events," said Emillie Blackwood, president of the Trinity Hospital Twin City United Volunteer Auxiliary. "We also want to use this opportunity as a chance to help the community get to know our organization better and consider joining us in our efforts to support the hospital."

No appointment is necessary for the free blood pressure screenings, and a health information and record card is being given to all who participate.
