Wild Instincts in Need of Fish

Wild Instincts, the only wildlife rehabilitation center in the Northwoods

permitted to treat ALL native wildlife species, needs your help!

With ten times the normal patient load for this time of year they are in

desperate need of fish.

If you want an excuse to go fishing, their wild patients would appreciate

it and so would Wild Instincts. Whole fish is best but they will also take

filets from the corners of your freezer. And if you find some venison in

the shadows there, they also need venison.

Any questions can be directed to 715-362-WILD (9453) or

Providers recommend fasting for a period of at least 12 hours before a cholesterol screening. Appointments are not necessary and the FREE screenings are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Cholesterol patients must be 18 years of age and older.
 
“Last year we were honored to provide over 700 free screenings to community members,” said Ministry Sacred Heart/Saint Mary’s Foundation Director, Jesse Bolder. “Being informed about your healthcare and the services offered locally is the most important step you can take for living a healthy and active life.” Ministry Saint Mary’s associates and community partners will be available with health and wellness information.

As a certified Car Seat Technician, Blaine will inspect your car seat and cover information necessary to assist parents and caregivers in the proper selection, use and installation, of the child restraint. “A properly installed car seat could be the difference in a child suffering an injury versus protecting them in the event of an accident,” said Conley. “Most parents don’t realize their car seat was put in incorrectly and we’re offering to inspect the seats to ensure they’re installed properly.”

JOIN THE RELAY FOR LIFE OF TOMAHAWK
Fight Cancer and Support Cancer Survivors by Starting a Team
 
Tomahawk, WI- Cancer continues to remain a number one health concern for Americans. The good news is that nearly half of all cancer deaths are preventable and events like the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life not only educate people on what they can do to reduce their cancer risk, but also raise funds that lead to better treatment and more lives saved.
 
“One in every 100 Americans participates in this fundraising event that has become a global phenomenon,” stated Val Nelson, Event Chair.  “Everything we do at Relay For Life contributes to reducing cancer mortality and incidences, whether it’s raising dollars that support free patient programs and services, research or volunteering to commit to advocacy and education efforts – we’re all a part of the fight and we need the community’s help.” 
This year’s Relay For Life of Tomahawk will be held on Saturday, June 28, 2014 at Veterans Memorial Park.  The opening ceremony will begin at noon.  A new twist to the 2014 event is the event will take place all day and end at midnight with a memorable ceremony of lighted sky lanterns.  There will be food, fun, celebration activities, and the traditional Luminaria Ceremony to honor those taken by cancer, support the fighters and admire the survivors.  Relay For Life participants never give up hope.  By holding the popular event on a Saturday afternoon at the Park, the committee is hoping the community will come out, and join in the activities planned for throughout the day into the evening.  There will be something for all ages during this year’s event themed, “Cancer’s a Beach”, and more people than ever from Tomahawk, residents and visitors alike, will be able to take a stand against cancer with the new event time and location.
While the event is still several months away, planning committees are currently recruiting more teams to join the event. Teams are often made up of co-workers, friends and family members. Many businesses, schools, organizations and religious groups also build teams. Prior to the Relay event, team members raise dollars by fundraising and securing sponsorships. During Relay For Life, teams set up a team site, typically decorated in the event theme and take turns walking a track in an effort to raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer.
At the event, the Luminaria and Survivor Ceremonies offer time to remember those we have lost and celebrate those who have won the battle, while the Fight Back Ceremony gives everyone a chance to make a personal commitment to take action against cancer throughout the year.  The midnight release of the sky lanterns will add to the impact of our Fight Back Ceremony while the glow of the Luminaria light the evening and paths.
 
If you are interested in starting or joining a team or making a donation, log on to RelayForLife.org/tomahawkwi and follow the links to register for the Relay For Life of Tomahawk.  If you’re not able to join a team, simply log on to make a donation. For more information, call Val Nelson at 715-966-2398 or Diane Geis Hapka, American Cancer Society Staff Partner at 715-277-4392, email diane(dot)hapka(at)cancer(dot)org
