CAVING THE WAY in Doylestown PA! Meet two Bucks County Moms, Nina Olive and Andrea Agostinetti, owners and creators of the Salt Cave @ Doylestown. These two Moms have been huge advocates for Salt Therapy and the benefits of Holistic Salt Caves. They have even driven out of state several times per month to visit with their children! Upon many long drives, discussions took place regarding how lovely it would be to have a Salt Cave in the area! Being very busy Moms with a combined 5 children amongst the two of them, the thought of opening a business seemed crazy, and so far off. "During one of those exact car rides we were giving our daughters one of the famous, if you can dream it, you can achieve it speeches." We realized that we constantly preach women empowerment to our daughters and we needed to practice what we preach! If we want one in our town, let’s build one ourselves and stop waiting ... The want turned into a dream, the dream turned into a plan and the plan turned into reality! Its here! The first Salt Cave in Bucks County! With only 501 Salt Caves in the United States, they are thrilled to bring Salt Therapy to adults and children in our area. Check out the website to learn more about the benefits for people of all ages, as well as special and private events, girls nights, reflexology, Reiki, Children's story time play dates, and so much more!

Enjoy 45 minutes in nearly 5000 lbs of pink Himalayan Salt as the air is infused with Pharmaceutical Grade Therapeutic Salt to enhance and promote health and wellness.

Camp America Day Camp’s 51st Annual Spring Spectacular Open House

Crafts, Face Painting, FREE ! Games, Moon Bounce, Refreshments, n u F and More! Family

Camp America proudly serves families in the Montgomery, Bucks and Philadelphia Counties ranging in age from 2 ½ to 15 years old. Lunch, door-to-door transportation or extended hours are provided for your convenience. Our program provides highly qualified staff and a family oriented atmosphere that focuses on “learning by doing”. Skills are at the heart of every activity at camp whether it is instructional swim, archery, or rock-wall climbing. We are always careful to match the appropriate level of learning to each age group which allows our camp program to grow with your child.

A state-of-the-art ropes course provides our campers the perfect opportunity to work on problem solving skills and team work. Our oldest campers are given a chance to become positive role models for our younger campers which helps develop strong leadership skills that will benefit them throughout their life. We even provide a specialty program for our gifted and talented campers that’s focused on small group STEM based learning. If you imagine a traditional summer day camp you might envision a group of friends kayaking, racing go-karts around an oval track, and eating hot dogs at a picnic table. You might also think that such a camp is located in a quiet wilderness setting. Yet in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Camp America Day Camp has been quietly providing this traditional experience to families for more than 50 years. We believe there is no better investment in your child’s health and well-being than a summer spent playing with friends at camp. To learn more about Camp America Day Camp, inquire today and set up a personal tour for you and your family. We can’t wait to meet you!

If your child is not performing at his or her highest potential in sports, it could be due to a vision problem. Many parents and children are amazed with the improvements that can happen with proper visual correction — a higher batting average, better free-throw, or faster response time in positioning themselves to the ball. Often the best option for sports and vision correction is wearing contact lenses. Some of the advantages include better peripheral vision and not having to worry about glasses sliding down or the lenses fogging up. Another option is sport goggles with impact resistant lenses. This type of eyewear gives your child the visual correction they need to perform well while protecting your child's eyes from the ball or other objects moving at a high velocity. In addition to visual correction, sports performance relies on effective binocular vision. Inaccurate distance judgement and poor tracking eye movements can prevent athletes from reaching their full potential. Depth perception, visualization, peripheral awareness, visual reaction time, and eye-hand coordination are visual skills which can be enhanced with vision therapy. At Spectrum Vision Care, we do binocular vision evaluations, sports vision therapy, contact lens fittings, and also carry a great selection of sports goggles for kids. We want to help your child perform at his or her highest level!

• Get organized – Group games, books, outdoor gear, and clothing by gender and size. • Only the best – Look in sunlight for stains, clean toys, wash seat padding. • Check Recall List - It’s illegal and unethical to sell recalled items. www.cpsc.gov. • Large items first – Make space in your home, greatly increase your income! Help your sale organizer promote the event and bring more shoppers. • Supplies – Computer, printer, cardstock, scissors, safety pins, hangers, tape, baggies and zip ties. • Enter, print, and keep piles of 10 items - Makes it easy to match instead of a mega pile of tags and items. • Follow pricing recommendations - Well priced items sell at full price before discount. Don’t price with emotion. • Group items – Save time, provide value. Offer 2 piece clothing sets, group books. • Secure small parts - Use baggies & attach to the item. No packing tape over decals! Try painters tape or zip ties. • Know sale guidelines - TCT allows any hangers and does not have an item limit.

Foster a Dog for the Spring! Give the Gift of your Love and Time to a Dog that just needs a place to stay until we can get them adopted! Fostering a dog is one of the most rewarding things you can do as a pit bull lover. Shelters are full to capacity with these wonderful animals. We do not have a physical building to

temporarily home our dogs in need. This is why we rely on

our foster families to house our dogs while they are waiting

to join their forever family. By being a foster family, you can save a precious life. You can give them the comfort, love,

shelter, and care they are longing for and desperately need.

Fostering is not a financial burden. We provide the initial supply of food, vet care, crate (if needed), toys, and other items as available.

Will YOU open up your heart and home to save a life ? To begin the process of fostering a pitbull in need of a temporary home, please contact
