Free services, fun at Our Community event

Everything’s free at the sixth annual Our Community Event, Aug. 3, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Friendship Park in Madras, next to city hall.

Sponsored by the churches of Madras, the free day is held as a way to put faith in action and give back to the community.

Services, food, and entertainment is free, including: dental, medical, hearing and vision checks; clothing; family photos; auto and bicycle maintenance; haircuts; work crews to help with yard and house care; and much more.

The Kids’ Corner will have plenty of fun with inflatable jumping features, kids’ crafts, and other activities.

Several musical bands and groups will be playing live music throughout the day to entertain people as they sit in the food tent enjoying hot dogs, SnoCones, and other treats.

New this year will be a veterinarian onsite with limited pet vaccinations and nail trimming. Pets must be on a leash or in a carrier for these services.

Since the downtown event site has limited parking, shuttle rides are being offered from the fairgrounds, where people can park their car and ride back and forth for free.
