Ten-hour fasting is required for cholesterol screening.

Different booths will provide brochures and literature on healthy living, cancer and diabetes awareness, herbal medicine, different youth programs, services for children with special needs and the elderly, and more.
After the lunch hour, Lions Clubs members will provide entertainment, such as Zumba and dancing.
Those interested in joining Lions Clubs will be given the opportunity to register with the organization.
