Dismal day doesn?t diminish nursing home celebration

Fifth-graders from Hillsboro Elementary School braved 50-degree temperatures and a light mist Monday morning to participate in a balloon launch at Salem Home in Hillsboro to mark ?National Nursing Home Week.?

See how Hillsboro Community Hospital is inviting the public to celebrate with them in this week?s Health & Fitness Focus on Page 6A.
