Blech, ticks. They make most people nervous . . . and they can make you pretty sick, too.
This year’s mild winter and wet spring make it a boomer year for ticks. In Minnesota, peak season is April-July and September-October.
Deer ticks (“blacklegged tick”) can carry several diseases that may infect humans. The most common – and dangerous – is Lyme disease.
The Parkinson’s Support Group will talk about driving assessments at its meeting on Wednesday, May 24 at Northfield Hospital.
Individuals who have Parkinson’s, or those with a loved one who has Parkinson’s, are invited to attend.
Our friends at the Northfield Hospital Auxiliary have done it again. It was another record-breaking year for the Annual Book Fair, with $65,200 in sales. Wow!
The Auxiliary will use this money to fund a new, wheelchair-accessible van for the residents of the Long Term Care Center, among other projects. Watch for us on the road soon!
Thank you to our wonderful Auxiliary – and the hundreds of volunteers and thousands of shoppers you rally every year to support Northfield Hospital. We salute you!
