In 2008, the nation wrestled with what to do for the more than 40 million people without health insurance. But the people of Butler County just addressed it. And the Community Health Clinic of Butler County was born. The Clinic provides free care to those who are uninsured or underinsured. Many are between jobs or employed by small employers who can’t offer health insurance. Some are young people without any support from their parents. Some are widows or widowers who lost their health insurance when their spouses died. Some are veterans without dental insurance.

To celebrate its 10 years of care provision …and its future of providing care… the Clinic will hold a 10th Birthday Party on Sept. 20. “Our birthday party will be a fun event,” said Executive Director Kimberly Reamer. “Its goal is for the community to get to know us better.” The party will be thrown on the grounds of the Clinic at 103 Bonnie Dr. in Butler from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. that day and admission is free. Social service agencies in Butler County will provide games people can play, Butler County food trucks will be selling specialties, vendors will be selling their items , and there will be free cupcakes and live country entertainment.

And everyone in attendance can enter a free raffle that will award one winner with $250. Tours of the clinic will be available. For more information, contact the Clinic at 724.841. 0980 or go to their website at
