Dianne Little with Holmes County Community Health Clinic came before the council to inform the councilmen of their progress over the past year.

“We’ve been experiencing so many blessings at our clinic,” said Little. “Our clinic provides free help for any and all without insurance and is a ministry First Baptist Church of Bonifay. We operate completely on volunteers like Dr. Bailey and in the last 12 months we’ve seen over 250 people.”

She said she had added up the time and services provided by volunteers and estimated that they have saved the city around $50,000 in medical expenses.

“We are very proud and love what we are doing for our community,” said Little. “When we were here last year we weren’t sure where we were going to be in a year, but here we are seeing an average of 15 to 16 patients a day.”

She said the clinic is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the first and third Saturday of every month and they are located one block East of First Baptist Church Bonifay near Bonifay Middle School Gym.

They would welcome donations like an extra desk, furniture and a computer and welcome any volunteer nurse practitioners.

The council approved of the Holmes County Mounted Posse holding their annual Veterans’ Day Parade starting at 10 a.m. on Nov. 9 down Waukesha Street in Bonifay and agreed to provide hotdogs lunches at Veterans’ Park after the parade.
