Paso Robles

Wine and the arts will converge on Sunday when the Paso Robles wine boutique Rockin’ R Winery hosts a fundraising event for the San Luis Obispo County Arts Council and the Paso Robles Art Association.

Planned for 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., “Rockin’ Stomp for the Arts” will collect a suggested donation of $5 per person for a traditional grape stomp — where people crush grapes with their bare feet. Children are also welcome.

The family-owned business — at 8500 Union Road — will also have a celebration on Saturday in conjunction with the Paso Robles Harvest Festival and the San Luis Obispo County Arts Council Open Studios Art Tour.

A disc jockey will perform live from 12:30 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and other festivities are planned.

Arroyo Grande

Flu shots and free health screenings will be among the services available at the fifth annual Arroyo Grande Community Hospital Health Fair.

The event will be held on Oct. 24 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Flu shots will be available to the first 150 participants on a first-come, first-served basis.

Shots for the swine flu will not be available at the fair. Those are available only through the county Department of Public Health.

The health fair will also offer free blood pressure checks, skin cancer screenings by appointment and foot exams by local doctors.

Participants who want to take a low-cost cardiac risk profile blood test will have to fast after 10 p.m. the night before.

The test measures cholesterol, tri-glycerides, HDL and glucose levels in the blood. The test begins at 8 a.m. and continues until 10 a.m. in the hospital’s annex conference room.

Skin cancer screening appointments can be made by calling 473-7695. For more information about the fair, call 473-7695.
