"This is an opportunity for us to bring vendors to the Sportsplex, because people are not always able to get out sometimes, and this way we can bring vendors to the community so they can get these services done either for free or at a small cost," Carr said.
Carr said vision and cholesterol screenings will be offered, and Starkville Police Department will be onsite to offer information about healthy living, such as avoiding drinking and driving.
