Flu season runs from October through May.
“Influenza is a substantial public health threat, so we ask individuals to get the vaccine to protect not only themselves but also their families and the community,” said Bellone.

A natural tree can become fully engulfed in flames and spread fire to the rest of the home if it is not properly cared for. Similar results can occur with artificial trees that are not fire retardant or inherently fire resistant.

Selection Tips
 Make certain the tree has a “healthy” green appearance and is not a shade of brown.
 While on the lot test the tree for dryness by shaking it vigorously or bumping the trunk on ground several times and observe for excessive needle loss especially at the
branch tips.
