It’s All About Bologna!

Every July, Yale plays host to the Yale Bologna Festival, a 3 day weekend event from July 28 to the 30th, that closes the streets and transforms this small community of just under 2,000 to a gathering of over 20,000 Bologna starved party-goers! The Bologna Festival includes such events as the famed outhouses races, a street dance, fireworks and a parade down Main Street that continues to grow each year. A tradition in Yale since 1989, this festival has grown considerably since its humble beginnings. The festival draws people from all over the State of Michigan as well as others, eager to see who will be the next King and Queen of Bologna.  T.J. Minnie sold his first bologna in 1906 from a small shop located downtown on Main Street.  Since then, a proud history of making first class bologna is still carried on today by C. Roy Inc., a company founded by Cecil Roy and still run by the Roy family.

St. Clair County Health Department Recognizes World Hepatitis Day

The St. Clair County Health Department is recognizing World Hepatitis Day, which takes place annually on July 28. Endorsed by the World Hepatitis Alliance and the World Health Organization (WHO), World Hepatitis Day aims to raise awareness of viral hepatitis and influence change so that hepatitis can be eliminated.  Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. Viral hepatitis accounts for 1.34 million deaths per year. Together, hepatitis B and hepatitis C cause 80% of liver cancer cases in the world. According to the World Hepatitis Alliance, 90% of people living with hepatitis B and 80% living with hepatitis C are not aware of their status. Risks factors that can increase the chance for becoming infected with hepatitis are: living with someone with hepatitis, having sexual contact with an infected person, using injection or non-injection drugs (including marijuana), receiving tattoos or piercings with contaminated needles, being incarcerated, or being homeless.  Talk to your healthcare provider to determine if you need to be tested. Though the St. Clair County Health Department does not test for hepatitis, we provide vaccines to help prevent hepatitis A and hepatitis B. To schedule an appointment or for more information call (810) 987-5300. Visit us at www.scchealth.co or follow us on social media @scchdmi.

Foster Grandparents Plus A Beautiful Me Equals Camp S.H.I.N.E. Zone

The nonprofit organization A Beautiful Me has partnered for the second year with Foster Grandparents, a division of Council on Aging, to put on the free day-camp, Camp S.H.I.N.E. Zone. The camp takes place Monday, August 21 through Thursday, August 24 from 9 am to 3 pm each day at the Eleger G. Harvey Reinvestment Center in Port Huron.   It is recognized that many children today spend time at home alone. At Camp S.H.I.N.E. Zone, boys and girls who have finished kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to learn essential life skills in a fun and engaging way that will help them when they are home alone. S.H.I.N.E. stands for Safety, Health, Imagination, Nutrition, and Empowerment. Hands-on safety, “how-to tips” for staying healthy, and nutritious meal planning are just some of the skills that will be taught to children who attend the camp. After lunch time, K-2nd grade will remain at the Reinvestment Center, while 3rd-5th grade boys go to the Great Commission Church for empowerment sessions, and 3rd-5th grade girls go to the Huron Building for a “be-YOU-tiful” workshop series provided by A Beautiful Me.
When asked about the camp, Laura Nestle from Council on Aging stated, “18 years ago Camp S.H.I.N.E. Zone began as Safety Camp at the Red Cross. It has grown from serving eight children to a nearly one hundred. Partnerships in the community continue to grow to make this four day event about many different valuable topics in a fun and exciting format!”   Partnerships include: MSU Extension, YMCA, Port Huron Housing Commission, Port Huron Area Schools, Knights of Columbus Council #8274 and Youth Advisory Council of St. Clair County Foundation.  After attending all four days, participants will receive a t-shirt and a camp goodie bag. Camp S.H.I.N.E. Zone is FREE, but limited to the first 100 boys and girls that register online at ABeautifulMe.com or call 810-987-8813 or 810-984-5061 x115. Please register by August 3rd.
A Beautiful Me is a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides original, unique and interactive workshops to foster self-esteem in ALL ladies of ALL ages, specializing in workshops for 3rd-12th grade girls.
