First Friday- June (ok, so it's Wednesday)

June is National Safety Month!  The National Safety Council will be featuring a different safety topic each week.  This week's feature is Summertime Safety

Since I'm going on vacation, and I'm sure everyone wants to know what next week's feature is, I'm going to let the cat out of the bag early: next week is Overexertion.  Here's the blurb from the NSC website- "Overexertion is the third leading cause of unintentional injuries in the United States, accounting for about 3.3 million emergency department visits. Whether at work or home, you can take steps to prevent overexertion.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also has great resources available for planning ahead for disasters and also summaries of recent large-scale incidents.

It's best to be prepared!  (note: neither the NSC nor the CDC cover zombies, so you're on your own for that)

And some happenings around the State-

The Kansas Historical Society will be having a flower exhibit throughout June.  See their website for more information.
