Families can celebrate a “real” New Year’s Eve together and still get the kids to bed early by attending New Hampshire’s most unique year-end celebration. The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire will be hosting its annual Family New Year’s Eve Celebration on Wednesday, December 31 from 10 am – 3 pm with plenty of daytime merriment for all. The museum’s event is modeled after a festive New Year’s Eve party for adults. Visitors receive noisemakers and can create their own flashy party hats to wear. At 11 am, 12:30 pm and 2 pm, there are spirited “countdowns to midnight” that rivals Times Square celebrations with music and confetti. A glittering ball drops from the top floor of the museum as the last ten seconds of the year are counted down. Each visitor also receives a plastic “champagne flute” of ginger ale to toast the New Year with their family and friends. No reservations required. <<
Thank you for raising awareness about the need for foster parents in Massachusetts. As an organization that also provides Intensive Foster Care, The Home for Little Wanderers has found that many people are unaware of the different types of foster care. We encourage anyone who is interested to learn more. Every child deserves a safe and loving home.
This topic has occupied my mind for years! Thank you for starting a movement that parents so desperately need! It is difficult for young parents to NOT get caught up in the overscheduled lifestyle. No well-meaning parent wants their child to miss any opportunity for healthy enrichment, but too much is counterproductive! Although my children are teenagers now, I would have LOVED to hear your words of wisdom when my family craved downtime!
Dr. Newberger - Thank you for giving the HPV vaccine visibility in your community. We are very passionate about educating people regarding this deadly virus. "This is one of the epidemics of the 21st century," says Otis Brawley, chief medical officer at the American Cancer Society.
On June 1, 2008 our 23 yr. old daughter Kristen died after a courageous fight against HPV caused cervical cancer. The vaccine would have led to a different outcome for Kristen.
Kristen’s cancer battle led to the book, “Love, Kristen,” which tells about her experience. While doing research for the book, we learned how little women know about HPV and its tie to cervical cancer; the availability and importance of HPV testing and vaccines and Pap screening tests. This fact led to the founding of the Kristen Forbes EVE Foundation and the creation of the Cervical Cancer-Free Indiana Initiative (CCFIN).
The mission of the Kristen Forbes EVE Foundation (www.kristeneve.org) is to eliminate cervical cancer and significantly reduce HPV infection levels. The Foundation is based in Noblesville, IN.
People need to understand that "the HPV vaccination is about cancer....not sex."
Once again, many thanks for writing about HPV.
