Want to quit smoking? Then participating in Rowan County’s first “Smoke Free” Day may be the answer.
Participants can learn how to kick the habit Saturday from 8 a.m.-noon at Farrington Family Medical Center, 401 Mocksville Ave.
There will also be family games and giveaways. Each adult who turns in a half pack of cigarettes will be entered to win a free Nintendo Wii and Nintendo Wii Fit.
Farrington Family Medical Center, Pfizer Inc., Rowan County Health Department, Cheerwine, Food Lion, American Cancer Society and the YMCA sponsored this event.
