National Nursing Home Week is cele- brated throughout the coun- try and has been celebrated since its inception in 1967. This year's theme was "Fulfilling the Promise". Prairie View had slated numerous events and activi- ties for the celebration. It started with a Carnival on Monday. The carnival included ring toss, fishing, darts, basketball and the duck pond. Clowns were on hand to assist facilitating the activ- ities. On Tuesday, Prairie View held an Open House after its recent remodeling project was completed. The staff, with the assistance of the Prairie View Auxiliary and the Tracy Lions served hamburgers, hot dogs and ice cream to their guests. Over four hundred (400) people came to the event where three (3) door prizes were given out. Jane Carlson and Deb Hesse each won a hanging basket and Duane Petersen won the grill set. Wednesday, Minnwest Bank South donat- ed rolls from the Tracy Bakery to the staff: Also on Wednesday, the residents served banana splits to the staff and visitors. Thursday the original plan was to go cruising downtown and through the country to check on the farmers, however, the weather was not cooperating and we decided to stay in. The Tracy Bakery was kind enough to deliver rolls and other goodies to the resi- dents. On Friday, we wrapped the festivities up with crazy hat day and a pizza party/happy hour. We had numerous crazy hats going on throughout the day, from baseball helmets, to Dr. Seuss hats to a lamp shade. The week was a tremendous success and everyone, from our residents, staff, and vol- unteers to our families had a great time. Special thanks to all those individuals who made it a wonderful week because the joumey matters. .Specia! adult Tdap immunlzahon clinics Public Health holds special adult Tdap immunization clinics on Thursday, June 2 and Saturday, June 4 in Walnut Grove. Redwood County Public Health will host special adult Tdap immunization clinics on Thursday, June 2 and Saturday, June 4 for adults who may be uninsured, have health insurance that does not cover vaccinations or have not met insurance deductible. Vaccine-preventable dis- eases still circulate in the United States and around the world as seen in the whoop- ing cough epidemic of 2010, resulting in illness and death of 10 infants. In Minnesota 1,000 cases of the whooping cough were reported in 2010. In an effort to decrease this trend, new guidelines recom- mend adults be sure to get a 1-time dose of "Tdap" vac- cine (the adult whooping cough vaccine). This is espe- cially important as a way to prevent the transmission from adults to infants who are most vulnerable. The clinics will be held Thursday, June 2 from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. and Saturday, June 4 from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. at Walnut Grove Community Center, 311 6th Street, Walnut Grove. Call for an appointment at 507- 637-4041 but walk-ins will be accepted. Be sure to check with your health clinic if you have had this vaccine update already. If you have no idea when your last tetanus boost- er was and have no way to confirm a record of it, it is recommended you receive the vaccine update. Each day, nearly 12,000 babies are born in the United States, and all of them will need to be immunized against 14 vaccine-preventable dis- eases before age two. Getting vaccinated is the single best way for children to be pro- tected from vaccine-prevent- able diseases. Parents, grand- parents, childcare providers and the general community can all help keep our babies safe by updating adult vacci- nations too. If you cannot attend one of the special clin- ics, contact Public Health for other options for the Tdap update. Follow Redwood County Public Health on Facebook for information on the latest clinic and health information. Additional links and infor- mation is available at www. . To make an appointment for the Tdap update call Redwood County Public Health at 507- 637-4041. COUNTRY :: VIEW WEEKLY By Kim Rolling Exec. Director/Nurse Manager How nice it is to have a week of great weather. I've noticed the farmers out in the fields, which I'm sure is great for them as well.

The winner of this month's card tourna- ment was Agnes Seykora. Second place went to Eileen Elias, third Gloria Jacobs and 4th to Edith Swenson. There were approximately 12 play- ers. We were also blessed to have the WWG 5th grade band and the jazz band come to provide special entertain- ment for all tenants to enjoy. There is so much musical tal- ent in the area that people are willing to share with us. Next week we will take the bus to Marshall on Tuesday afternoon, have the tenant meeting on Wednesday and then we will enjoy special music by the Salhstrom fam- ily on Friday at 2 p.m. That's the news from the country. Have a terrific week.

The show will take you around the world on a journey to Arabia, California, Hawaii, India, and more. The show will have special effects with fog, strobe, mir- rored ball, and lasers.
