Two area YMCAs celebrating ‘Healthy Kids Day’ by Christopher Cornell ADVAntAGe eDitor

We have two great YMCAs in the Advantage area and the arrival of April means an annual festival at both locations: Healthy Kids Day. The Greater Scranton YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day event will take place at its facility at 706 N. Blakely St. in Dunmore on April 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Greater Scranton Family YMCAs are holding free community events at each of their facilities to inspire more kids to keep their minds and bodies active. This year marks the 27th annual YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day, the Y’s national initiative to improve health and well-being for kids and families. The following weekend, on April 28, the Greater Carbondale YMCA, 82 N. Main St. in Carbondale will hold its version of the event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Some features of the day will include: a kids’ fun run (pre-registration not required, starts at 10 a.m.), rides, petting zoo, face painting, magician, train ride, photo booth, bounce house, entertainment, health fair and more. For more information, email jsalierno@ or visit “HKD offers youth the opportunity to speak to local businesses about healthy


programs offered, learn how to eat healthy and participate in activities to stay active,” explained Lisa Burke, marketing coordinator for the Greater Carbondale Y. “There will be fun games, bounce houses and swimming, all for free.” Also on the 28th, the YMCA will hold the 24th annual Fred Ciotti Memorial Race, a 5K run/walk and 1-mile fun run. Awards will be presented in a variety of age groups for men and women. New this year: the course will include the Carbondale River Walk at Lackawanna River Heritage Trail. The first 300 registrants will receive the race T-shirt. Pre-register at the Y. Both events are free and the public is welcome. YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day, celebrated at more than 1,300 Ys across the country by more than 1.2 million participants, works to get more kids moving and learning, and creating habits that they can continue all summer long, a critical time for kids’ health. Research shows that without access to out-of-school physical and learning activities, kids fall behind academically. Kids also gain weight twice as fast during summer than the school year. As spring turns to summer, Healthy Kids Day is a reminder not to let children idle away their summer days. “When school’s out, it’s time to relax, decompress, and have fun with friends,” said Trish Fisher, president and CEO of the Greater Scranton Y. “Yet taking a break from school does not mean kids development is on vacation. Summer time


Kids cavort at last year’s Healthy Kids Day.

The YMCA gym will be decked out to welcome visitors.

at the Y focuses on the three key drivers of impact that inspire healthy youth development journeys: achievement, relationships and belonging. Through Y summer

programs, the social-emotional, cognitive and physical development of all youth are nurtured and celebrated, resulting in the best summer ever.”

Valley Community Library will hold its 13th annual “Books Appétit” fundraising event on Thursday, April 26. This year’s special event will be a wine tasting by Blakely-based Capra Collina Winery ( Capra Collina, named after the “nanny goat hill” area of Jessup, was founded by the Betti family, which has a long history of Italian winemaking. The Betti family also has a direct and important link to the library; Kevin Betti Sr., was instrumental in the establishment of Interboro Library in the 1980s. (Interboro Library was renamed Valley Community Library when it moved to its current building in 2004.) Books Appétit guests will be able to sample Capra Collina wines, and bottles will be available for sale. Books Appétit is held inside the library, where food and drink donated by restaurants, supermarkets and local bakers, is served among the stacks. The front desk becomes the bar. Raffle baskets, displayed at the library starting in early April, are another element of the fundraiser. Event tickets cost $25 per person, available for sale at the library, cash or check only. All proceeds from “Books Appétit” benefit Valley Community Library. Last year the event raised $7,728 for the library from corporate sponsors, raffles and ticket sales. Valley Community Library, 739 River St. in Peckville, serves residents in the boroughs of Archbald, Blakely, Dickson City, Jessup, Throop and Olyphant.

Laboratory services will also be provided by Wayne Memorial Hospital at the new location.

On or around May 1, Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (WMCHC) will raze the former American Legion Post No. 524 building at 100 Dundaff St. in Forest City. The plan is to build a new state-of-theart family health center on the site. The more than 5,000 square feet of new construction will include seven exam rooms, provider offices, a separate treatment room and facilities for laboratory services. The structure is, a worthy investment according to WMCHC executive director Frederick Jackson. “The office space we are currently utilizing in Vandling does not have the physical capacity to meet patient demand and lacks adequate parking,” stated Jackson. “Additionally, because it is outside of Forest City proper it makes access difficult for patients without transportation.” Jackson indicated the new site is not expected to be ready for occupancy until early 2019. However, health center providers and staff don’t consider that to be too far off considering the improvements to come. David Tomazic, DO said, “This move will be a good thing for the community.” The physician merged his Forest City-based solo practice of 35 years to become part of WMCHC in January of 2017.

There Is No Substitute For Chiropractic Care Your discs are made up of active, living cells that keep your spine stable and flexible. Despite their amazing resilience, they’re not immortal. Discs don’t have their own blood supply so they can’t fend for themselves. They depend on your joint motion for their supply of oxygen and nutrients. Abnormal joint movement interferes with the transport of nutrition to your discs, eventually leading to cell death. That’s why it’s so important we make sure your spine is properly aligned. Once your disc breaks down, it can’t regenerate. Our goal is to prevent it from getting worse and progressing to spinal degeneration. Nothing restores normal motion like Chiropractic adjustments can when your spinal joints are fixated or stuck. Instead of masking symptoms, Chiropractic addresses the underlying cause. We simply promote your body’s ability to heal it self naturally. You only get one spine. Let me help you take good care of it.
