GET SOME SLEEP!
Did you know that not getting enough sleep can literally kill you? Monday began National Sleep Awareness Week and this feature broadcast is specifically designed to make you aware of the importance of sleep.

We visit the Sleep Center at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital and talk with Dr. Russell Gombosi and Bonnie Kendrick, RPSGT. We also get the opportunity to tour the sleep center. Best of all, we find out just what happens while we sleep and the huge physical dangers of not getting enough.

The Sleep Center can diagnose and treat a variety of sleep disorders. Untreated, sleep disorders may negatively affect an individual’s quality of life and make it hard to carry out daily activities.

Bruce Applegate, the Executive Director of the Wellsboro High School Theatre says, “you do not have to get a bus ticket or travel to New York City, you just have to come up here to Wellsboro High School and enjoy a tremendous production by the students of this school district and their production of Fiddler on the Roof.” The dates and times of the performances are March 5, 6,and 7th at 7:30 PM and a matinee on March 7th at 2:00 PM. All showings will be held in the high school auditorium.
