The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that you wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds to help prevent getting sick and spreading illness to others.  If soap and water are not available use an alcohol-based product to clean your hands.

How to wash your hands.

1.  Use warm running water and soap.

2.  Lather up - scrub all hand surfaces(front, back, between your fingers, wrists and under nails) for 20 seconds.

3.  Rinse well.

4.  Dry with a clean towel.


When should you wash your hands?

1.  Before preparing or eating food.

2.  After going to the bathroom.

3.  After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has gone to the bathroom.

4.  Before and after tending to someone who is sick.

5.  After blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

6.  After handling an animal or animal waste.

7.  After handling garbage.

8.  Before and after treating a cut or wound.


When using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer:

1.  Apply product to the palm of one ahnd.

2.  Rub hands together.

3.  Rub the product over all surfaces of hands and fingers until hands are dry.




The National Association of Letter Carriers, in conjunction with the United States Postal Service, will be collecting non-persihable food items like canned meats and fish, canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal and rice on Saturday, May 9, 2009 to help families in need in our communities.

You can help by placing your food donation at your mailbox on May 9th before your letter carrier arrives.  It will be taken to the Post Office and then delivered to local food banks or pantries.  Please do not include items that have expired or those in glass containers.

It's Easy to Help:

1.  Put some non-perishable food items in a bag and place it by your mailbox.
2.  Your letter carrier will pick up and deliver to local food banks!



- One avocado contains 81 mcg of Lutein, an important nutrient for healthy eyes.

- Avocados contain more potassium than bananas.

- Once an avocado is picked, it takes between 7 and 10 days to ripen.  Keeping it in the refrigerator will slow down the ripening process, while a paper bag with a ripe apple will speed up the process.


What can I do to protect myself from getting sick?

- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.  Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze.  Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.

- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.  Germs spread that way.

What should I do to keep from getting the flu?

- First and most important: wash your hands.  Try to stay in good general health.  Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat nutritious foods.  Try not to touch surfaces that may be contaminated with the flu virus.  Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
