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.? Some 200 balloons were released into the air and eventually sailed from sight in the cool breeze. This also happens to be ?National Hospital Week.? See how Hillsboro Community Hospital is inviting the public to celebrate with them in this week?s Health & Fitness Focus on Page 6A.
