On Saturday, Oct. 16, all first responders and residents of Fulton County will receive free admission to Sauder Village for the annual Fulton County Appreciation/Community Health Day.
Thanks to the Fulton County Health Center, free admission is being offered. Sauder Village would like to thank all of the first responders for the service they give to our communities. First responders should be prepared to present a badge/ID to receive free admission. All Fulton County residents should be prepared to present a drivers license or other form of identification to verify county residency.
Health and safety professionals from throughout the region will also be gathering for the annual Community Health Day, featuring informational displays, health screenings, and door prizes. Representatives from the diabetes education, oncology, radiology, sleep lab, and wound care departments at Fulton County Health Center will be on hand to share information throughout the day. Hospital representatives have many free screenings planned throughout the day including blood glucose/sugar and cholesterol screenings. Guests will also have an opportunity to meet local law enforcement officers and explore a variety of fire and rescue vehicles in the parking lot.
In addition to the extra activities planned for this special event, guests will want to plan time to experience the past in the Historic Village. Visitors can visit places like the Grist Mill, church, schools, print shop, general store, and many craft shops. The Grime Home and barns are a fun place to experience life in the 1920s in rural Ohio. Guests can also experience the “roaring twenties” while visiting shops along the 1920s Main Street including a barbershop, theater, bank, grocery store, and soda fountain. Other highlights of a visit to the Historic Village include a free train ride.
Sauder Village is located at 22611 State Route 2 in Archbold – just minutes from Exit 25 of the Ohio Turnpike. For more details, call 800-590-9755 or visit www.saudervillage.org.
