Angier Senior Citizens to host a Health Fair Oct. 18


Many of our residents may not be aware of the vast amount of information and services that your business provides, so the Angier Senior Citizens invite you to participate in a Health Fair on Thursday, Oct. 18, at Angier and Black River Fire Department to increase awareness and to keep our community healthy.

Exhibit space is approximately 10 square feet and exhibitors will be provided one table and two chairs. Electrical power is available for display but must be requested in advance. Exhibitors may offer free screenings, if approved, along with promotional items. Selling is prohibited; however, exhibitors may allow visitors to register for prizes. Free lunch will be provided for all attendees. Flu shots will be available again this year.

Also, the Angier Senior Citizens are happy to have the North Carolina Lions Club Mobile Screening Unit on hand for vision and hearing exams free-of-charge. If you are interested in being a vendor at this event, contact Rachel Barnes at 919-639-2935.

  • Chicora was built in 1952 by Harnett County citizens as a country club. In 2003, all of the Chicora Country Club’s facilities were sold to an outside golf group. However, in the summer of 2006, a group of local club members, that also call Chicora home, joined together to form a new company known as the Chicora Golf Club. Because these owners live on or near the facilities in Dunn, they ensure the Chicora neighborhood and golf club will always live up to its country club status.
  • “The Land” offers a challenging 18-hole golf course, a putting green, driving range, full service pro shop, golf lessons by a PGA certified instructor, golf carts, rental clubs, full service bar, food, member and public tournaments, ABC Permits, swimming pool and club house facilities for reserve.
