“We are delighted to be able to organize this event again because it benefits so many people in the community“, said Scott Nesland, PA-C of the Myers Clinic. “The Heart and Hand House and the Belington Presbyterian Church do so much for communities across the county, such as serving hundreds of residents during Thanksgiving. We would not pass up an opportunity to help.
