Tick Control & Prevention
Nicole Chinnici from ESU shared with us what is new at the ESU Innovation Centers laboratory.  They provide free tick analysis in an effort to control the Lyme disease epidemic as well as other diseases that are carried or transmitted by ticks.  Pennsylvania is now the #1 state with a higher rate of incidence of tick borne diseases.  
She shared some examples of tick repellents and controls.  Nicole also advised to wear light colored clothing so you can spot the ticks more easily and that you can treat your clothing with repellents from the wist down.  You should also dreat your pets with collars or topical treatments.  
Nicole said that a rash is not always a signal of a tick bite and if you do find one, note the date of exposure and send the whole tick to the lab. 
Rotary Area of Focus-Supporting Education
Let's take the opportunity to read to preschoolers!  The Creative Learning Center at the Stroudsburg Wesleyan Church is celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday month by having parents of the kids come in to read during storytime.  There are a few days that are open and what a great way for Rotarians to go in support basic education and literacy...an area of focus in Rotary.  Dates that are available are Monday March 25th, Wednesday 27th and Friday March 29th.  It will be at 2:55pm at the Creative Learning Center at Jessica Peetz daughter's classroom.  Who wouldn't want to read to little Hailey!  If you are interested call Jessica at 570-269-2891.  
 
Don't forget to also share about the FREE Reading Program sponsored by the Rotary Club of the Stroudsburgs.
