Director/Nurse Manager Another week of summer is already gone, but we'll cer- tainly be feeling the heat this week! With the high temper- atures, be sure to seek out shade or air conditioning and hydrate yourself with water. Activities this week have included the bus ride down- town Walnut Grove on Tuesday, PoKeNo, J-I-N- G-O, BINGO, Wii, Stretching with Ashlee, Bone Builders, Ecumenical Church Services, Bible Study and SkipBo. There were 8 players for hand and foot canasta on Wednesday afternoon. The Kelley Boys provided special musical entertainment for all tenants on Friday afternoon. The bus was full as we went to the Laura Ingalls Wilder pageant. Clair Baker also drove with some of the tenants as well. It's such a great opportunity for us to see the local talent in action. They again provided an out- standing performance. So much time and hard work goes in to the pageant from all of those involved. Looking forward to next week we will have the regu- larly scheduled activities along with the 500 card tour- nament on Monday and the bus ride to Marshall on Wednesday. Root beer floats and solitaire frenzy will also be part of the scheduled activ- ities. That's the news from the country. Have a terrific week and stay out of the heat!

Call (218) 303-4222 Seven clays of summer As part of the Safe and Sober program, Seven days of Summer have begun. These are 7 differ- ent days throughout the summer that have been selected to increase aware- ness of the problems asso- ciated with speed. Troopers will be provid- ing extra patrolling on Minnesota roads. Why is summertime so dangerous? Summer is historically the deadliest time on Minnesota roads. As of today there have been 140 fatalities so far in 2011, compared to 174 during the same time last year. Our message is simple. We're looking for the things that get people killed: *Not wearing seat belt, drinking and driving, speeding and not paying attention are where our efforts are being focused. *We want to make a dif- ference.., and not make this another deadly sum- mer.
