Blood Analysis Program

The BG Chamber of Commerce and Wood County Hospital host the annual Blood Analysis Program on a Saturday in April each year. The comprehensive blood analysis includes a complete cholesterol check with HDL, LDL and triglycerides, liver and kidney function. Additional available tests include the TSH thyroid test and a PSA test for men, each for an additional fee. Blood pressure checks are also offered. Proceeds from the event will go to support the Chamber Foundation and Wood County Hospital Foundation Scholarship Funds.

Fourth of July Fireworks

This year will mark a new partnership between the City, Chamber, National Tractor Pulling Championships, and the Wood County Agricultural Society. The National Tractor Pulling Championships have offered their property located along Haskins Road to be the launch site for the fireworks. This new location will provide a larger area for launching, as well as visibility from many locations in that area. The Wood County Agricultural Society will be allowing spectators to park behind the fairgrounds in the lot off of Brim Road with over flow parking available in the lot across from the fairgrounds on Poe Road.
