United Way campaign kicks off Saturday

August 17, 2011

United Way of Big Spring and Howard County is ready to slip on its boots and bling for the 2012 campaign.

Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Big Spring Country Club the United Way will kick off the campaign with a night of live music, a silent auction, cash bar and heavy hor d'oeuvres.

“It doesn't matter if you put on your tuxedo, a sundress or your boots and jeans. The main thing is to come out and support these agencies,” said Jeanie Coor, former United Way executive director.

Healthy Woman event to focus on buckling up kids

August 17, 2011

When listing all the things parents can do for their children, properly installing a car seat usually doesn't come to mind.

But having the the right kind of car seat in your vehicle and, more importantly, making sure your child is properly restrained may be among the most important things parents ever do, officials say.

Car seat safety will be the topic for this month's Healthy Woman event, scheduled for 8 a.m. until noon Aug. 27 at the Scenic Mountain Medical Center north parking lot.
