The Good Shepherd Clinic will once again host its annual brunch to help the nonprofit continue its efforts to offer free medical care in Dawson County.

Volunteers with the free clinic will be at the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 8 for the eighth annual Grits and Granola brunch, where Tames is catering a delicious meal.

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at or by calling Elaine Laney at (706) 216-8914.

All proceeds of the event will benefit the Good Shepherd Clinic, a non-for-profit 501(c)3 clinic free non-emergent medical, dental, vision, hearing, wellness services and prescription medications to eligible patients. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the clinic.

To be eligible, patients must live, work or go to school in the county, not have any insurance and have an income of 200 percent or below the federal poverty level. For a family of two, that’s an income of about $34,000 a year.

For more information about the clinic visit or call (706) 429-9914.
