Beginning Jan. 8, 2018, St. Mary’s Hospital & Cottonwood Clinic will be conducting all lab draws in the clinic instead of the hospital. If you are coming in to have blood drawn, go to the Cottonwood Clinic reception area instead of to the hospital admissions desk. Pre-employment screenings will still be conducted in the hospital.
Due to the Christmas holiday, Syringa Hospital Board will meet Thursday, Dec. 28, 12:30 p.m., at Soltman Center in Grangeville.
Did you know the Von Trapp Family actually escaped into what is now Croatia, and not Switzerland, as The Sound of Music shows? Of course, movies take creative license, but it is interesting to read the facts of the Von Trapp’s lives. The autobiography Maria is interesting, as is all the history. Maria was actually professing to be a nun in a Benedictine monastery when she left to become a tutor for little Maria Von Trapp who was recovering from scarlet fever.
The family eventually traveled to the U.S. to sing and purchased land in Stowe, Vermont, where they opened the Trapp Family Lodge (my family has been there!).
Have a safe and happy New Year! See you in 2018.
