TWO REGIONAL HUMANE SOCIETIES TEAM UP TO EMPTY THEIR SHELTERS
10/30 - 11/1   

THE HUMANE SOCIETY IS WAVING THEIR ADOPTION FEE FOR CATS AND DOGS FROM THURSDAY, OCTOBER 30TH TO SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1ST. Brunswick, GA/ Savannah, GA - Humane Society for Greater Savannah and Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia are pleased to announce a collaborative adoption event to place all of their adoptable animals in permanent homes. Each humane society will host fee-waived adoptions for cats and dogs from Thursday, October 30 through Saturday, November 1at their respective shelters. The idea came about through the need of both facilities to do some serious fall cleaning, painting, and other facility work that is impossible to accomplish with animals in residence. Though they are independent, the two humane societies have a great working relationship and each has had great success with fee-waived adoption events. This collaboration will encourage families searching for a family pet to visit both organizations to find that perfect match. Pets at both societies receive core vaccinations, spay/neuter surgeries and microchips prior to leaving their shelters. Guinn Friedman and Troy Salsbury agree that: “The number of homeless animals in both Chatham and Glynn Counties is staggering and disappointing. We hope that by working together for three days of free adoptions, people will be enticed to adopt and that through the uniqueness of this event, our communities will become more aware of the plight of homeless pets.” For more information or interviews, please contact Troy Salsbury or Guinn Friedman as listed above.

Cost of the flu vaccine is covered under both Medicare and Medicaid.   Getting vaccinated against the flu is recommended for everyone six months of age and older.

The nasal spray is approved for use in healthy people 2 to 49 years of age who are not pregnant.   The flu virus is easily spread through coughs and sneezes and by touching something with the virus on it and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. That’s why good health habits are also important including staying home when you’re sick; avoiding close contact with people who are sick; coughing or sneezing into your elbow and not your hand; washing your hands often with soap and water; and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.   For more information, please call the Chatham County Health Department at 912-356-2441 or go to www.gachd.org/chatham and click on the “Flu Information” link under Chatham County Health Department Information.

NIGHT OF BROKEN GLASS KRISTALLNACHT REMEMBRANCE
11/6

JOIN TAYLOR CULIJA FOR THE NIGHT OF GLASS KRSTALLNACHT REMEMBRANCE IS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH, 7:15 AT THE JEWISH EDUCATION ALLIANCE IN SAVANNAH. The Night of Broken Glass Kristallnacht Remembrance November 6th at 7:15pm at the Jewish Educational Alliance in Savannah Kristallnacht was a series of coordinated attacks against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and Austria on 9–10 November 1938, and became recognized as “the dress rehearsal for the Holocaust”. The name Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) comes from the shards of broken glass that littered the streets after 7500 Jewish-owned stores and buildings, and 267 synagogues had their windows smashed and destroyed. Kristallnacht is especially relevant today as a reminder to stand up against the religious persecution that is currently occurring in Europe against the Jews and against the Christian populations in Muslim ruled nations. The keynote speaker for the evening will be Taylor Culjan; Holocaust educator, as well as the English Department Chair at St. Vincent’s Academy, Savannah. This past July, Mrs. Culjan attended The Holocaust and Jewish Resistance Teachers' Program - an intensive three week summer learning and living experience in Washington, DC, Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic for U.S. secondary school teachers who are committed to teaching about the Holocaust and Jewish resistance in their classes upon completion of the program. This special program is organized by the American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants. Mrs. Culjan was nominated, and then accepted by this prestigious group, with the aim of furthering her understanding of, and expanding her personal exposure to the horrors of the Shoa concentration and death camps in Europe. Funding for her trip was provided locally by the Matthew Cranman Memorial Fund. Mrs. Culjan will incorporate her experiences from this trip into her discussion of the events of Kirstallnacht and the meaning of this critical night in history. In addition, the program will include local middle school, high school and University student art exhibits, as well as songs, musical interludes and readings from actual diaries of survivors. The Kristallnacht Remembrance is Free and open to the public to people of all faiths. Please come to support the community, our students, and take this opportunity to learn.

THE 15TH ANNUAL SAVANNAH BUSINESS HALL OF FAME IS BEING HOSTED BY THE JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT AND COLONIAL GROUP MONDAY NOVEMBER 10TH. THIS YEARS EVENT WILL HONOR JOE BUCK AND GENE CARTLEDGE.  Junior Achievement and Colonial Group Announce Laureates for 15th Annual Savannah Business Hall of Fame on November 10  This year’s event will honor Joe Buck and Gene Cartledge as 2014 Savannah Business Hall of Fame Inductees  SAVANNAH, Ga. – Junior Achievement of Georgia-Coastal Region is pleased to announce the names of the laureates for the 15th annual Savannah Business Hall of Fame being held on Monday, November 10, at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center. This year’s honorees are Dr. Joseph A. Buck and Eugene Cartledge.   Junior Achievement (JA), along with Colonial Group, will host this year’s Savannah Business Hall of Fame where inductees will be honored for their business accomplishments as well as their extensive contributions to the community.    A leader in education for our community with his commitment to the educational needs of students, Dr. Joe Buck has been the Savannah-Chatham County School Board President since 2006. As an administrator for almost 40 years at Armstrong State University, he built valuable relationships between the university and the community before retiring in 2006 as vice president of student affairs. He also assisted in the execution of two key leadership programs, Leadership Savannah and Leadership Georgia, which help professionals gain leadership skills and a greater understanding of their community.  Mr. Eugene Cartledge, a national business leader and advocate for young children, decided to make his home in Savannah after spending much of his career in Virginia and New York. As former president of Union Camp, the largest paper manufacturer in the United States, Cartledge is credited with leading the company through its largest expansion ever and supporting the development of The Landings. He also serves or has served as the director on the boards of many notable companies including Delta Airlines and Sunoco, hosts multiple charitable events at his home and has served on the Endowment Board of Bethesda Academy for the past six years.  According to Johnathon Barrett, vice president of JA of Georgia, this event provides a representation of what it takes to be successful to students.  “These inductees demonstrate to our children that the giving of one’s self is a large part of being successful,” he said. “In the words of Calvin Coolidge, ‘No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.’ I think our inductees are great testaments to that philosophy, giving back to the Savannah community and leaving a positive impression on the lives of young people.”  The Savannah Business Hall of Fame is Savannah’s premier black tie business event. The gala will be held at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center on Monday, November 10, beginning at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception, featuring an upscale silent auction. A three-course dinner and the awards ceremony will follow, featuring video montages produced by WTOC. The evening will culminate with a champagne toast to the inductees who will be honored. More than 500 guests are slated to attend the event. Sponsorship and tickets are available for the Savannah Business Hall of Fame.

CPR SEEKS HELP FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOGS
TFN

COASTAL PET RESCUE IS SEEKING DONATIONS FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOG TREATMENTS.  It's been a long year for Coastal Pet Rescue, and with 99 canine intakes this year,   it's only going to be longer.  So far, Coastal Pet Rescue has treated five canines for heartworms, and two more are still awaiting their turn, but help is urgently needed to fund the medical care.  Although heartworms are preventable thanks to monthly medications, many of the dogs Coastal Pet Rescue rescues have not been kept current -  If ever at all - on the prevention, and thus need the expensive treatments.  Treatments can run $600 to $1200 depending upon the severity of the infestation, and since Coastal Pet Rescue does not believe in passing on the excessive medical bills for adopters and instead charges only a flat $150 adoption fee, there's a lot left to cover.  Donations may be made online at coastalpetrescue.org/donate or by mail to Coastal Pet Rescue, PO Box
30462, Savannah, GA 31410.

TFN

COASTAL PET RESCUE ADOPTION CENTER SEEKS VOLUNTEERS AND DONATIONS TO ASSIST THEM IN RESTORING THEIR GROUNDS. We're excited to announce that we're starting work on Phase I of the Coastal Pet Rescue Adoption Center. Thanks to an amazing partnership with the Animal Hospital at Rice Hope and Animal House at Live Oak Kennels, we have a lease agreement for seven existing kennels to be used as temporary holding kennels to rescue animals from area animal controls until foster homes are available. The kennels need a few repairs, and we want to clean up the grounds a bit, too. We will have two work days, Wednesday, October 29 and Saturday, November 8, starting at 9:30 am. Volunteers are needed to help clean, paint, rake leaves, and pick up debris. Volunteers who have their own tools, rakes, etc. are encouraged to bring them as we have limited ones on site. Additionally, we need donations of some items, to include: Lawn and leaf bags, 14 thick blankets/comforters, Rags, 1 Outdoor trash cans, Bug spray, Bleach, 14 Stainless steel food and water dishes, Deck box (for outdoor storage), A broom, Pavers, Plywood and Shingles (to replace the roof), Or purchase directly from our Amazon.com Wishlist. If you are interested in helping on a work day or donating supplies, please contact us. Instructions along with driving directions to the location on Southside Savannah will be provided after signing up. Once the kennels are up and running, we'll be looking for volunteers to help daily with cleaning and walking canines as well as assisting with transporting them to and from vet visits, foster homes and adoption days.

 


 

CITY OF SAVANNAH SANITATION BULK COLLECTION
TFN   

THE CITY OF SAVANNAH ANNOUNCES A NEW SYSTEM FOR BULK COLLECTION.  CITIZENS MAY SCHEDULE THEIR BULK COLLECTION BY CALLING 311.  Residents will still have a scheduled week each month to receive bulk item collection with no additional charge, but collection will no longer be automatic. Residents must call 311 by the Friday prior to their scheduled week of collection to receive no-fee bulk item collection service. The collection schedule is still based upon customers' weekly trash collection day.   Residents will be charged a fee for the collection of any bulk items put out for pick-up that have not been called in to 311 by the Friday deadline. Any items placed out off-schedule will also be removed for a fee. Sanitation calendar magnets were distributed to residents at the start of the year. The calendars can also be downloaded online at savannahga.gov/sanitation.  Bulk item collection is a continued service offered by City of Savannah Sanitation to retrieve and dispose of large items placed out for collection by residents during a one-week period each month. Bulk items include most large household goods, including discarded furniture and appliances. Items that will NOT be collected during bulk item pickup include yard waste, construction material, hazardous materials and liquid waste.
