Chris and Danielle Shannon of Renton sit with their daughter Crystal, 8 (left) and son Chris, 3, inside Fisher Pavillion and wait for their number to be called during the Seattle/King County Clinic at Key Arena at Seattle Center on Thursday. They're visiting the free clinic for both dental and vision help for themselves and their kids.
“I can be patient if it means getting some free medical help that we couldn’t otherwise afford,” said Chris as he attempted to entertain his son during the wait. “Having kids teaches you an enormous amount of patience. If that means coming back again another day, then we may have to just do it.”
