June - CPR/AED Month

Many of us have seen an email this week with an abundance of information and resources for CPR and AED Awareness. Thank you to Nichelle Hayes for taking the lead on getting the word out on this important information. If you have time this weekend, try and check out this video on hands-only CPR from the American Heart Association. AHA has also put together a wonderful resource kit with numerous printables, memes, and social media resources.

Happy National Donut Day!

Yeah, yeah, we know this is the Wellness Update, but donuts can be good for wellness...mental wellness, emotional wellness? :) If you have a chance today, check out one of the many donut shops around town. Don't forget to bring cash if you go to Long's, and be prepared to wait in line!

Farmers Market of the Week - The Carmel Farmers Market

The Carmel Farmers Market is open from 8:00-11:30 on Saturday morning on the Center Green, which is on the campus of the Center for the Performing Arts near the intersection of Rangeline Road and 126th Street. Booths worth checking out include My Dad's Sweetcorn, The Walking Waffle Co., and Hoosier Culinary Sharpening to get your knives in tip-top shape. There is a free parking garage located next to the market, and at this time pets are not permitted at the market, so please keep that in mind when planning your trip.
