Community Hospital opened its doors and local Shriners opened their hearts to kids in need of medical help. Children with orthopedic health issues were seen Saturday at a free clinic.

Kids who have a problem with their bones or muscles were able to get an exam. Here's how it works; if a doctor decides the child has a serious medical problem Shriners pays for them to get the treatment they need.

Most children seen today were referred to the Shriner Hospital in Salt Lake City. And one was sent as far as Chicago for free care.

More then twenty children were seen at today's free clinic. There are 21 Shriner's Hospitals in North America.
