Readers Say Thanks

I want to bring some good news to our community and give a thank-you to Castle Valley Children’s Clinic. Last week Jana, Betty and Rene from Castle Valley came to Head Start in Carbondale to bring outreach medical care to children from low-income families. They gave affordable well-child checks and free vaccinations to our kids who are waiting to start preschool. Their caring and cheerful attitudes made the experience a good one for kids who don’t get regular medical care. With all the complaints you hear these days about our medical systems, they are doing something right at Castle Valley.Good job!Denise WilsonHead Start, CarbondaleTeen reading program was awesomeThe New Castle Branch Library would like to thank everyone who helped make this year’s Summer Reading Program a great success.
