HUNTERS ON OUR PROPERTY

Roberta posted this on our FB page and asked me to post on the web
Someone was not very nice on Saturday, Dec.2, 2016 I discovered a young doe deer had been killed on our Village back golfing field, it appeared to me to have been shot, butchered for the meat and the remains left behind. I live very close to this area and have heard a lot of gun fire due to hunting season that sounds very, very close. Be aware and take caution if passing along the unpaved road in the rear of the Village and if exercising your pet on the back field. Hunting is not allowed on our Village property but some hunters are disregarding that fact and ignoring the posted signs, so please be very cautious.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL OUR MEMBERS AND RESIDENTS

Expired Prescription Drugs? Dispose of Them Safely on Oct. 22

 

To help keep prescription medications out of the hands of those who shouldn’t have them, the U.S. Department of Justice, working with local law enforcement, will hold a prescription take-back event in our area on Saturday, Oct. 22. This event allows residents to drop off unwanted or expired prescription medications free of charge for safe and convenient disposal.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., residents can drop their medications off at several local sites. CLICK HERE or visit dea.gov to find the site closest to you. More sites are being added daily. Several communities in our area also have permanent collection sites. Click here for those.

(FYI  Schuylkill County Sheriff’s Office will be collecting in Pine Grove 10/22 from 10am to 2pm)

I am posting this as a response to a FB page item about sending cards to servicemen/women.   I copied and pasted this here for anyone who wishes to participate.  Annamarie

Walter Reed National Military Medical Center

Every year there is a Facebook Post that goes viral asking citizens to send Holiday Cards for service members, veterans and families receiving care to Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Walter Reed Army Medical Center, on Georgia Ave closed more than 5 years ago. Any cards sent to 5900 Georgia Ave addressed to “Any Soldier,” or to “A Recovering American Soldier” will be returned to sender because the address no longer exists.

Also, if you see the Facebook Post, please help us by responding to correct it.
This year you can also assist a service member, veteran and their families by providing cards they can send home to their loved ones this holiday season. The deadline for all cards including Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa is Friday, November 30, 2016.
Items to include in each bundle:
3 blank holiday cards (same holiday per bundle and no glitter)
3 blank envelopes with postage stamps
1 short message to the service member (do not included contact information, only first name) Bundled with a ribbon
Please drop off or mail completed bundles to:
American Red Cross in the National Capital Region
ATTN: Holiday Mail for Heroes
8550 Arlington Blvd
Fairfax, VA 22031
If you would like to continue sending signed holiday cards in the traditional sense, please contact your local Red Cross office, Military Treatment Facility or VA Hospital to obtain the local guidelines.

Up-to-date information will be posted on our page and please feel free to call the American Red Cross (https://www.facebook.com/RedCrossWRNMMC/) at 301 295 1538 if you have any questions!
