“Love Your Heart” this Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14th

Free blood pressure screenings offered in San Marcos

On Thursday, Feb. 14 between 10 am and 2 pm, residents will be able to have their blood pressure checked at two San Marcos sites including the San Marcos Senior Activity Center, 111 Richmar Avenue, and the San Marcos Library, 2 Civic Center Drive.  Representatives from San Marcos Fire Department will be on hand to assist with the blood pressure readings while providing heart disease education and awareness.
