Great Opportunity! Troop 215 has graciously opened their doors for area troops to come and get free physicals on this night. Therefore, we are not meeting at New Hope, but instead will meet at the Life Center of First Presbyterian Church at 7:00. The address is 302 West Whitner St. in Anderson (it is the left side, gym area, of the main church building across the road from where Troop 215 meets in their huts). They have got a medical team coming from the Clemson area to perform physicals for troops at no cost to you!!
**First, you will need a permission form to allow the physicals to be done. I have attached one that you can print off, have parents sign and then bring with you. If you cannot print it out, just hand copy it and have parents sign it. Be sure to bring it with you as they will not do the physical without it!!
**Second, you will need all three medical forms (A,B, & C). A & B is to be filled out by parents and includes immunization record which may be attached if you already have a copy of them. C form is what the medical team will complete and sign (you can complete the top of it). They may want to take a look at A & B before doing the physical, so be sure to bring all of them. I have attached these in a pdf file that can be typed into if you want to. If doing this, type all info in, then print it out to bring with you to the Life Center.
DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY FOR FREE PHYSICALS and REMEMBER: do NOT go to New Hope for a meeting.....we will be at First Pres Life Center this TUESDAY!!
