Amy Knights tests the blood glucose levels on one of the hundreds of people to attend the Craig Lions Club sponsored 9Health Fair on Saturday at Sunset Elementary School. An estimated 40 to 50 volunteers tested and measured glucose, vision, height, weight and blood pressure at the event, which celebrated its 29th year. "It was a great success and a wonderful turnout. I want to say thank you to all the volunteers and Sunset Elementary and a special thank you to Michelle (Moore) and all her phlebotomists as we couldn't do this without you," said Kristi Shepherd, site coordinator for 9Health Fair.
