Our family has been suffering with an annoying cold that has run through the family. A timely reminder that we should all get our flu shot soon. If you've been thinking about staying healthy -- both physically and mentally -- as winter approaches there are several events throughout the county this month to help you out. BTW, if you're also looking for a flu shot head to your local pharmacy or family doctor to see what they have to offer. The weather may still be warm but flu shot season has definitely arrived!
