It will be at Central Lake YMCA, 700 Lakeview Parkway, Vernon Hills, on Monday, Aug. 13, also from 4 to 6:30 p.m.

Note: The Community Care Connection takes its last patient 15 minutes before the close of each site, if space is still available. Screenings are provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and the available spaces can fill up rather quickly. So interested persons should plan on arriving as early as possible during each visit.
