Noble County Extension Homemakers help to reduce the spread.
Being familiar with the local homemakers' sewing talent. Parkview Noble Hospital reached our to members to help make handmade face masks. Yesterday, 355 masks were delivered and another 100 are on there way! "Thank you so much!! You are all so amazing! " is the message from Cathy Linsenmayer from Parkview Noble Hospital. Cathy says the masks will be sent to the hospital laundry, and then will be used for visitors, people at the front desk, etc. in order to save the medical masks for hospital personnel. She says the masks will be shared with other facilities as needed, soon all masks will be used by someone. Many THANKS to the members and friends, of the community, who have spent hundreds of hours making these masks. The mask supply at this time is sufficient as the response to help has been awesome.

Estate Planning Medical Privacy Version 2

Medical privacy plans should be in place long before a loved one becomes injured or incapacitated. If you don’t, you may not be able to find out how that individual is doing if they end up in the hospital.

To get a better understanding of medical privacy, view this video produced by the Purdue Succession Planning Team with the help of Jeff Washburn of Sharpnack Bigley Stroh & Washburn LLP.

Keep Your Leftovers Safe www.fightbac.org

Manage your take-out leftovers safely. Your refrigerator is your family’s critical appliance at this time.

These tips will help you manage your food — for safety and to avoid food waste:

• Store leftovers in shallow containers with lids.
• Leftover prepared foods (such as take-out meals) can be kept in your fridge for 3 to 4 days.
• Reheat and eat leftovers or freeze them within 4 days.
• Reheat leftovers to 165 °F as measured by a food thermometer.

Safe handling of leftovers will protect your family from food poisoning.

With all this crazy weather you may be out of your gourd, but we at the Indiana Gourd Society are definitely into ours! Ever seen a gourd birdhouse hanging in a tree? Did Granny have a gourd dipper down by the spring? Gourds have come a long way since “Follow the drinking gourd” guided slaves north to freedom by sighting on the Big Dipper. Nowadays gourds are both functional and decorative. Almost anything you can do to paper, canvas, wood, or clay, we can do to gourds: draw, paint, calligraphy, cut, engrave, mold, weave, faux finish. Gorgeous art or cute craft; Native American, Western, African, Oriental, modern or holiday designs -- we do it all. Professionals like Ron Pressel and Celia Shaneyfelt will teach you how! Visit the 26th ANNUAL IND. GOURD SOC. STATE SHOW -- “Red, White, and Blue Gourds!” Competitions & workshops are open to all, not just members. Gourd gurus will answer questions, sell seeds, and demo techniques using tiny tools. Enjoy our vendors, workshops, silent auction, Make It/Take It, Kids Area,and “How To” handouts. If your group needs cash, decorated gourds make great fundraisers! We will show you how. You can even grow toys for your kids with Tennessee Spinners and Cannonballs! Have you bought a loofah recently? Did you know you can grow those? Come see all the gourd art & craft we make at the Fulton Co. Historical Soc., Rochester, IN (west side of US 31 just 4 mi. north of town). FREE for Kids age 18 & under; Adults $5, Seniors (60+) $3. Open to the public Fri., May 4, 10 am - 7:30 pm & Sat., May 5, 10 am- 4 pm. More info at www.indianagourdsociety.org or contact Ida Kennedy, 219-767-2901, [email protected]. We’ll also see you at the Indiana State Fair in the Ag-Hort building! Put us on your calendar. How do I know you’ll have a great time? I heard it through the gourd vine!
