AG SPOTLIGHT – THE GROWER’S MARKET
Today’s producer spotlight shines on the vendors at the Wellsboro Growers Market. Farmer markets like this one are a timeless tradition in rural counties. Regardless of the changing demographics of the town and consumer preferences in dietary choices, the produce, meat, dairy and hand crafted goods produced locally are always in demand. Visitors can take away a taste of what makes this part of Pennsylvania such a great place to visit, time and time again.

FAMILY DAY & HEALTH FAIR HIGHLIGHTS
In our busy lives, it can sometimes be hard for us to take time out of our hectic schedules for those who mean the most to us. Events like Family Day & The Children’s Health Fair, which took place on Saturday, June 11th, provide opportunities for us to spend time with our family and friends, while showing us fun ways to stay healthy together.

The community gathered on the Green for FREE games, music, giveaways, and healthy snacks. Children of all ages enjoyed playing a variety of instruments, sitting in an official Wellsboro Fire Department firetruck, and even jumping in a bouncy house!

LAUREL HEALTH – GET “TICKED OFF!”
Did you know that tick season is upon us? May through July are the months during which you and your family are at greatest risk for tick bites. Home Page correspondent, Morgan Koziar had the opportunity to chat with Laurel Health Family Practitioner, Dr. Bajwa to find out how you and your family can stay safe from ticks and prevent Lyme disease!

Dr. Bajwa further explains the “do’s and don’ts” of dealing with an attached tick. First of all: don’t panic! If you have a tick, it is important to remove it with tweezers, or a tick removing tool. Just be sure that you dig deep, get a good grip, and remove the tick’s head. What you want to avoid is crushing, burning, suffocating, or irritating the tick bite area as this can, as Dr. Bajwa says, “cause more harm and not really help you.”
