Out and About – Week of May 10th

On Thursday, May 20, the First Presbyterian Church of Three Rivers/Centreville, 320 North Main Street, Three Rivers, will host a Life Line Screening, a providence of preventive health screenings.

Screenings are fast, painless and affordable. There are three key tests that check for blocked carotid arteries, an irregular heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation, and high blood pressure, which are the three leading risk factors for stroke. Other tests check for abdominal aortic aneurysms and hardening of the arteries in the legs. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women.

Screening packages start at $139. Single tests cost around $70.

For more information regarding the screenings, or to schedule an appointment, call 1-888-653-6441, text the word CIRCLE to 797979, or visit www.lifelinescreening.com/communitycircle. Pre Registration is required.

Next Saturday, May 15, is Armed Forces Day and is also Peace Officer’s Memorial Day. All American flags are to be flown at half-mast. As you get Out and About, thank any police officer, or member of the Armed Forces you may come in contact with. Individuals who are overdue for a “Thank You For Your Service!”

There’s always something going on at the Carnegie Center For The Arts. From now through Thursday, May 27, you’ll find on display the Three Rivers All Schools Show. The show features artwork from students in fifth through twelfth grades. It’s always amazing to witness the talents of these young people. The Gallery hours are Tuesday through Thursday, from 10 AM until 5 PM. The Carnegie Center is located at 107 North Main Street in historic downtown Three Rivers.

This Saturday, May 15, is the Three Rivers Community Cleanup Day and Main Street Washdown. If you’re proud of our downtown area, this would be the perfect time to come on out and show just how proud you are to have a historic downtown. Registration to help starts at 8:30 AM at the DDA Main Street office located at 57 North Main Street. They need volunteers to plant flowers, weed, pick up trash, and spread some mulch.

All items for removal should be placed next to your regular trash. You are allowed three cubic yards, which is equal to what you might put in a pickup truck.
