Hundreds turn out for medical, dental services at free health clinic in Grass Valley
The Union

Stacy Rector drove to Grass Valley from Sacramento early Sunday morning to do something he hasn’t done in 14 years — sit in a dentist’s chair and have his teeth cleaned.

Rector and his aunt arrived at the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Building at 3:30 a.m. to take advantage of a no-cost medical clinic offered Saturday and Sunday.

After his dental work was completed, Rector said he went into the bathroom at the veterans building, looked in the mirror and couldn’t stop smiling.
