Fly Creek Cider Mill’s ‘Big Squeeze Weekend’ to Help Fight Cancer
The Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard will feature its 13th annual “Big Squeeze Weekend” this Saturday and Sunday.
The event is designed not only to increase awareness and early detection of breast cancer and the health benefits of apples, but also to raise funds for the Friends of Bassett’s commitment to Bassett cancer research. All day Saturday, sales of fresh, sweet cider in both full gallons and half gallons will be donated to the group.
New this year is the Red Cross mobile blood donation bus hosting a blood drive both days. The 60-foot bus will be accepting blood donations from walk-ins or by appointment. Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-REDCROSS or at Redcrossblood.org.
Returning is Bassett Cancer Institute’s mobile medical screening coach to offer cancer and blood pressure screenings to the public.
A Bassett practitioner will be on hand to conduct clinical breast exams and screening mammography from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. both days. Walk-ins are welcome. Blood pressure screenings will be offered on Sunday in addition to the breast exams and mammography.
