Can you feel it? Something big is coming to the area this spring and it will attract citizens from miles around. It’s not a new festival but an event of great magnitude that will bring comfort to many.
The dates are set. A Remote Area Medical (RAM) clinic will be held near the Smyth-Wythe county line next spring. As talk about the possibility of such an event has progressed, the projected number of those who are expected to stand in line for the free medical, dental and eye care has escalated. Organizers anticipate about 2,000 people will seek care.
