Scouts to hold

final car wash

Boy Scout Troop 163 of the First United Methodist Church in Williston will be holding its final car wash of the summer, trying to raise money to help offset the cost of fuel for its annual summer camp. This year 17 boys are going to Camp Rainey Mountain in Clayton, Ga. The cost of diesel fuel for the bus will be about $1,000. This is an enormous cost for such a small troop.

Please come visit the car wash this Saturday, June 28 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. in front of the Family Dollar store on Noble Avenue. All proceeds will go directly to fuel costs. Donations will be accepted.

Stop smoking

classes planned

The Levy County Health Department announces free smoking cessation classes beginning in Williston on July 10, at the Nature Coast Hospital.

If interested, pre-register by calling Kristina Zachry, Tobacco Prevention Specialist, at 486-3404.

Registration will also be permitted at the sessions, but space is limited.

Pre-registering is the only way to guarantee your opportunity to participate!

The smoking cessation classes last for six-sessions and are based on the highly successful Quit Smoking Now Program, originally created by Big Bend Area Health Education Center and newly revised by the Suwannee River Area Health Center.

Each smoker who joins the classes will develop an individual plan for quitting and learn a step-by-step method for changing behavior and quitting smoking. This group approach uses positive thinking, alternative behaviors, one-on-one help, rewards, and group support to help participants stop smoking successfully. The emphasis of the classes is on long-term quitting, and includes the latest skills for good stress management, weight control, assertive communication, and exercise - skills to help you succeed.
