BAKER — Blackmon resident Charlie Barrow now knows his glucose levels are a little high.

"I just have to watch what I eat," he said.

Baker mom Katie Wilson, who received an identity kit from the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, now has reassurance in case her daughter gets lost.

"It's nice to have something on file for here, in case (police) need something to identify her with," she said.

And it's all because of the Baker Lions Club's Health Fair on Thursday at Baker School.

The health fair took place during the school's open house as a convenience for parents, club treasurer Mary Ann Henley said.

From checking blood pressure to offering flu shots, several healthcare providers assisted attendees.
