Silvermine kindness

Used or unwanted handbags, purses, and clutches are being collected by Silvermine Elementary PTA personnel who will give them to local shelters during the holiday season after filling them with toiletries and other feminine necessities.  As in previous years, the PTA members will buy the bag stuffer items with their own money, according to PTA representative Laurita Garcia, who said, “If you want to fill the bags yourself, that will help us a lot because we do it with our own wallet!  It’s so important to teach our kids about kindness.”

Karen Doyle Lyons will assist your donation; email her at [email protected] or drop off donations at her back door, located at 58 Spring Hill Road.

“We have received many pocketbooks and now we need to fill them,” she said. “They will collect till the end of November. Looking for shampoo, combs, etc. to fill bags.”

    Do not vaccinate your child, you don’t know the risks. Do not vaccinate because of social pressure no one should be coerced!

    No “long term” studies exist for the COVID-19 vaccine! And it doesn’t even do its job as a vaccine.

    If you have doubts or concerns about vaccines for you or your children, talk to your doctor. If your house is on fire, would you call the firefighters, or some guy on tv who wants to sell you a fire extinguisher?

    George Palisades, we’ve all taken Flu vaccines for decades yet, people still get the Flu. It doesn’t mean it’s not working. Just because we can still catch Covid while vaccinated doesn’t mean it’s not worth it. There is a plethora of evidence the vaccine greatly reduces the risk of death or extreme symptoms. With far less sophisticated science, vaccines were created for the Spanish Flu and other earlier world epidemics in shorter time, without long-term studies. History tells us these vaccines work without great dangers. I don’t know what’s in the measles, rubella, typhoid, polio, chicken pox and meningitis vaccines either but, I’ve been required to get vaccinated for these illnesses throughout my school years and I’m just fine and glad I never caught those illnesses too. Vaccines work. Please don’t spread misinformation and unnecessary fears.
