Save Your Skin This Summer!

TEST

May 22nd is “Don’t Fry Day”

The long Memorial Day weekend is just a few days away. As you head to the beach or relax outside at home, remember to protect your family against the sun’s rays. The Friday before Memorial Day, May 22, 2015, has been declared “Don’t Fry Day” by the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention to encourage sun safety awareness.

More than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States every year. Before you step outside, protect your skin from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. Enjoy the holiday and all of your summer fun, but do so safely. The following tips can help:

• Always use a broad spectrum sunscreen with a minimum of 30 SPF, even when it’s cloudy. Reapply it at least every two hours and after swimming.
• Wide-brimmed hats help shade your neck and face but do not offer complete protection. Use sunscreen on these sensitive skin areas.
• Wear light-weight sun-protective clothing. Long sleeves and long pants help protect skin.
• Take advantage of shade whenever possible.
• The sun’s UV rays are most intense between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

How else can you prevent sun-related skin damage? How can you tell if a skin lesion is a melanoma or a non-cancerous mole? Are certain people more susceptible to sun related problems?

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®

Date: Saturday, June 13
Location: Core Creek Park, 901 Bridgetown Pike, Langhorne, PA
Time: Check-in begins at 10:00 a.m. and the walk begins at 11:30 a.m.

This event is benefitting A Woman’s Place (AWP) of Bucks County. The international men’s march encourages men to walk one mile in high-heeled shoes to protest sexual assault and gender violence. This is a great way to engage and educate the community and to raise much needed funds to support the free services and programs of AWP, the only intimate and domestic violence organization serving Bucks County.

The walk is organized by The Philly WAM Girls (Michelle Blattner, Danica Hershey, Michele Goodwin, Katie Payne, and Courtney Plasky) who for the past two years have coordinated this event in support of Philadelphia area domestic abuse prevention programs. Speaking on their involvement with this program the Philly WAM girls said, “We have loved putting this event together. It’s such a great cause and one that is personal to so many people. We are so proud of the men who participate in this walk and show they are dedicated allies in solving this issue and they are in fact man enough to walk a mile in our shoes.”

The walk will be held, rain or shine. Registration can be completed on the event website. Women and children are invited to participate as well but get to wear sneakers. Children under age 16 are not required to register. Walk registration closes at midnight on May 31. High-heels will be provided by the organizers, but please register by May 22 to guarantee a walk t-shirt and high-heels (for the men).

The walk will be emceed by Philadelphia radio personality Preston Elliot. Bucks County’s Chief Deputy District Attorney Matthew Weintraub will also be in attendance as a guest speaker.

A Special Opportunity for one Chamber Member Company

Save $1350 per Employee per Year

A healthier workplace and better quality of life for each employee is coming your way in “Preventing Sickness & Enjoying Well-Being”

The large not-for-profit Integrated Benefits Institute (full of PhD’s) http://ibiweb.org/ supported by major insurance companies, retailers and manufacturers conducted a study showing that the average employer loses $5400 per year per employee due to sickness. This does not include the cost of insurance premiums, administration, or loss of sales. It is comprised of sick days, days at work sick resulting in lower productivity, and long-term illness.

R3 Results, an educational film production company spun-off from R3 Consulting, which has coached 1-in-5 of the Fortune 50, is looking for a company to participate in its next film project “Preventing Sickness & Enjoying Well-Being.” The company should have a minimum of 50 employees. About a dozen volunteers from the company would take part in coaching that will reduce sickness at work, and address deep-rooted resistant problems and patterns. The goal is a 25% reduction of losses over the next year. There will be no charge to the company. For a company with 1000 employees this could mean a savings of $1,350,000 per year. For a company of 100 it would mean $135,000 per year and improved quality of life and employee appreciation. This is offered on a first come basis. If interested please immediately contact Ken Hantman for details at ken@r3results.com or 215-947-2338.

EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT BY LBCCC STUDENT LEADER FRANCIS ANTHONY WALTER III

Francis Anthony Walter is taking on his next challenge of earning the highest rank in Boy Scouting, Eagle Scout. His proposed project is the beautification of the wooded area at Veterans Park, 700 Veterans Highway, Levittown. Beyond the current memorial, he will clear the brush and fallen tree limbs, will create a woodchip walking path to the scenic view of Mill Creek. Mr. Walter will install 2 benches with concrete frames and wooden slats and 2 bird houses. Middletown Township Parks and Recreation, the “Beneficiary,” is pleased to have the remainder of the park land respite area made useful. The work weekends will begin mid-July.

Francis will be the project manager, planning the work, directing his fellow scouts from Troop 82, Our Lady of Grace Church, friends, family, and any other volunteers. All financial and material donations will be recorded and acknowledged. Francis needs materials for the benches, bird houses, prime/stain, and 200 cubic feet of wood chips.

Leadership projects are in Francis’ blood; he is the grandson of Isabel and the late Dan Menichella, former and long-time Chairs of the Business Card Exchange, and advocates of the Lower Bucks Chamber of Commerce.
At age 16, he has been a part of the LBCCC since he was a month old, attending the 25th Anniversary Celebration in 1998, Business Card Exchanges, and a graduate of Student Leadership 2014. His sister, Danielle Frances Walter (2012) and his Mother, Kathleen Caucci Seborowski (1994) also are Leadership Bucks County graduates.

Francis is a junior at Archbishop Wood High School, in Warminster, where he has earned Second Honors. He has served on the Performing Arts Stage Crew and has been elected as stage crew president for senior year. Francis is part of HOSA, the medical careers honor society. He has been selected to attend Envision, a 10 –day summer program hosted at Johns Hopkins University for Pre-Med students. The Archbishop Wood Community Service Corps is one group to whom he donates his time as well as Boy Scout service hours.

Francis desires to improve his community and hopes he can count on your support to make this project a reality; please donate in any way possible. Contact Francis directly at fawalter22@gmail.com Thank you for your generosity.
