Registration now open for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids' Sake Campaign

 

Those interested in helping area Big Brothers Big Sisters program now have the opportunity raise money through the Bowl for Kids' Sake Campaign.

 

Participants of the campaign are asked to register their teams with Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS), and then recruit their bowling team. Every team is asked to raise or donate a minimum of $100 to the BBBS program.

 

Once that money is raised, teams are invited to a celebratory bowling party that will include free bowling, pizza, soda, and prizes. Additionally, each participant will receive a limited edition 2015 BFKS t-shirt, that was designed by a Chase Middle Schooler.

 

BBBS says 100% of the money raised from this program will stay in the team's community. That money will carry out the work of matching the 80 children BBBS has on their waiting list with adult mentors, and provide ongoing support to the child, volunteer mentor, and child's family.

 

The 2015 bowling parties will be:

Panhandle Health District urges residents to keep their family healthy during spring break

Panhandle Health District urges residents to keep their family healthy during spring break

With spring break just a few weeks away, Panhandle Health District (PHD) is urging residents to check their health records and get the recommended vaccinations to ensure their family’s health is protected during any upcoming vacations.

 

PHD Staff Epidemiologist, Jeff Lee, explained that the recent measles outbreak in the United States is prompting the added precautions.

 

“Measles is easily spread – especially when traveling,” Lee said. “If you need to get immunized, it’s important to get the necessary vaccines two to four weeks before your trip. It takes time to develop full immunity after the vaccine is administered.”

 

154 cases of measles have been reported in the U.S. this year. Most of these cases are linked to the Disneyland theme park in southern California. Idaho does not have any confirmed cases.
