The Family Fun Day and Teddy Bear Clinic is a no-cost picnic lunch with activities and health information for community members of the Point Douglas community. On the “Teddy Bear Clinic” side, children receive free stuffed animals and have it treated by volunteers. This provides an opportunity for children to learn about and become more comfortable with health care in a fun and interactive way.
