Saturday Brings Community Members

Codman hosted its annual Social Saturday at the Codman Square Summer Farmers Market on Aug. 13, and the community came out in force! People came for blood pressure screenings, information about breast cancer screenings (and appointments), and COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots.

While they were there, attendees brought the kids over to the activity table where we had a fun balloon animal artist making custom balloons for them, as well as face painting. They also enjoyed lunch from Fresh Food Generation and cookies from Sweet Teez, two local food businesses. 4 Corners Yoga was giving chair massages, and folks were lining up to enjoy those!

Our Nutrition department blended up fresh watermelon juice and shared the recipe with people who enjoyed the cool drink. They gave out more than 125 samples of the tasty drink.

Codman’s X-Clinic talked with community members about the clinic, which provides testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections. Clinic staff also gave away useful items and spoke with people about the monkeypox vaccine.
