FLU VACCINES ARE NOW AVAILABLE AT THE CHATHAM COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT IN BOTH THE SHOT AND NASAL SPRAY FORM.
Chatham County Health Department Now Offering Flu Vaccine. CHATHAM COUNTY, GA – The Chatham County Health Department now has flu vaccine available. Cost for both the injectable (shot) and nasal spray form is $28. A high dose flu vaccine is also being offered for people ages 65 and older, and it is designed to provide the best protection for that age group. The high dose vaccine will be $45 per dose. 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. Neither the flu shot nor the nasal spray can cause the flu. The shot is approved for use in healthy people 6 months of age and older, people with chronic medical conditions, and pregnant women. 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
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.

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.

CPR SEEKS HELP FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOGS
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.
