A free screening clinic for children age 3 to 5 who are Garden City

residents is planned for Sept. 27 at Garfield Early Childhood Center,

121 W. Walnut St.

Trained professionals will check each child's hearing, vision, large

and small muscle development, communication and thinking skills.

Appointments may be made by calling 805-7503. This number also may be

called if you are unable to keep your appointment the day of the

screening.
