The Macon County Public Heath in celebration of Public Health Month held a Community Appreciation Day on Tuesday at the Macon County Human Services Building.
There were displays, free health screenings and demonstrations.
The Macon County Sheriff’s Department and the its dogs were on hand to demonstrate the dogs in action.
Officer David Blanton’s dog Zee and Sgt. Clay Bryson’s dog Hoss sniffed out drugs, and showed how the dogs protect an officer under attack.
Some of the children were allowed to pet the dogs afterwards.
