The Free Clinic of the Twin Counties is hosting a 25th Anniversary Open House this Saturday from 5-7 p.m., according to Director Melissa Dill.

The event will involve raffles, refreshments and live music, and will hopefully serve as a fundraiser to garner donations for the clinic, as well, said Dill.

The Free Clinic of the Twin Counties was founded 25 years ago by Dr. Ohlen Wilson and Dr. Robert Pryor, along with members of the First Baptist Church of Galax, to give those who could not otherwise afford medical care a chance at professional treatment and service.

“We serve our purpose here to help the indigent citizens of Carroll County, Grayson County and the City of Galax,” said Dill. “Without us, they miss out on health and medical care.”

The Free Clinic of the Twin Counties is open Tuesday-Thursday, 9:30 a.m.-noon and 1-4:30 p.m. and is located at 140 Larkspur Lane, Suite C, in Galax. For more information, call (276) 236-0421.
