Please consider attending our 8th Annual Halloween Party FUNdraiser THIS FRIDAY! This year, 100% of the proceeds go towards combatting the heroin epidemic in our communities! The Substance Abuse Coalition provides forums, cafes and trainings to educate the public and youth, continually working towards a substance free county! They also set up prescription drug drop off locations as many people get started on addictive substances with something at home that was once prescribed, but no longer needed. You don’t have to like to dance, but we have dancers on stage to watch as entertainment (myself included), cash bar, SOOOOOO many outstanding raffle prizes, DC Entertainment (DJ), food menu, and then Roc Street Band kicks off the costume contest! It is a full night of fun! Tickets are only $10 which includes a chance to win the grand prize overnight at The Inn on the Lake! Kids, five and older, are welcome (full price ticket) until the band starts 🙂
Peace & Blue Skies, Donna Bennett

Do you or a loved one have issues with being mobile? Mobility is how well you walk and move whether it is going to the bathroom or kitchen on your own or doing fun things like going out to lunch with friends and traveling. Many people lose mobility as they age or because of health conditions. Being mobile isn’t just importance for your independence but also can help you avoid health problems such as depression, heart disease, and osteoporosis. Plus regular walking can help prevent falls by keeping muscles strong and maintaining balance. If you need help with mobility, stop in the Medicine Shoppe to see our new selection of mobility aids. Our knowledgeable staff can help decide which aid is best for you. We can assist you with canes, crutches, standard walkers, or rollators.
