Charlotte – Before the banks, buy cialis Charlotte had textiles. And companies couldn’t move textiles without rail.
April marks the 100th anniversary of The Piedmont & Northern Railroad. Cousin to the streetcar, this electric, interurban railroad connected Charlotte with textile towns in North Carolina and the South Carolina upcountry. The P&N, which began as a project of James Buchanan DukeDuke Mansion Station and the company now known as Duke Energy, was essential for developing business and bringing wealth to the region. Today, plans are afoot to revive part of the line running west from Panthers Stadium with the much-loved vintage Charlotte Trolley.

Learn more about this fascinating part of Charlotte’s history at a free program. “Mr. Duke’s Railway: The Piedmont & Northern” takes place on Sunday, April 1, 3 pm, at Levine Museum of the New South, 200 East 7th Street in Charlotte.

URGENT! Contact your Senators to increase Elder Falls Prevention funding

Filed under: senior living guide — seniorlivingguide @ 4:20 pm

Help us increase funding for Elder Falls Prevention!

The federal government spends only about $2 million per year to prevent falls among older adults. Yet, with one in three seniors falling each year, the annual medical costs for treating them are now over $28 billion.

The good news? With your support, the Senate last year agreed to include an additional $10 million for Elder Falls Prevention funding for FY12.

The bad news? The additional funding was dropped in the final agreement, and funding for FY12 remained at $2 million.

We believe our best chance to increase Elder Falls Prevention funding for FY13 is to influence Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA), who chairs the subcommittee that oversees program appropriations.

Funding talks are going on now, and we need your help. Here’s what you can do:

1. Contact your Democratic Senators by March 29.

Use our online alert to email your Democratic Senators and ask them to contact Sen. Harkin about this issue. We’re asking Senators as well, but they’re much more likely to act if they hear from you—their constituents. If you have a personal relationship with your Senators’ offices, please call them to make the request instead.

2. Register for our free advocacy webinar on March 22.

This won’t be the first battle in our fight to protect funding for Elder Falls Prevention and other healthy aging programs. Join our Public Policy and Advocacy team to learn how you can influence your members of Congress as they make critical funding decisions.

Your voice matters! Thanks, as always, for your support.

Sincerely,

Howard Bedlin
Vice President, Public Policy and Advocacy

Hospice & Palliative CareCenter to Sponsor Annual Hospice Hope Run on April 14

Filed under: Hospice,Senior Housing Events,senior living guide — seniorlivingguide @ 10:37 am

Hospice Care Center

WINSTON-SALEM, rx N.C., March 15, 2012 – Hundreds of runners and walkers are expected to participate in the 16th annual Hospice Hope Run ? a 10K run and 5K walk/run  ? set for Saturday, April 14, at the Deacon Tower at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem. There will also be a Deacon Dash for children under 8 years old.

Registration begins at 7:15 a.m. followed by an aerobic warm-up at 8:30 a.m.  The 5K walk/run (3.1 miles) takes off at 9:00 a.m., and the 10K run, on an USATF Certified Course, will start at 9:15 a.m.  Both begin and end at the Deacon Tower.  The Deacon Dash will be held at 10:30 a.m.   The awards presentation follows the events.

The runs and walk are open to anyone interested in participating, and the proceeds will benefit patient care at Hospice & Palliative CareCenter.  Everyone is also invited to stay for the Wake Forest Demon Deacon Spring football game that follows the Run at 1:00 p.m.

The Primo Team Tailgate will offer a special location for teams of 25 or more to meet and rally before and after the Run. Reserved team spaces give team members a spot near the start and finish area and near the main entrance to BB&T Field.

“Over the past 16 years participation has grown, not only because of the fun and competition, but because the experience is so meaningful,” Ann Gauthreaux, Hospice public relations director, says. “It’s a great opportunity to honor or remember a loved one.  We’ve also made it even easier to sign up by going to our website at www.support4hospice.org.”

The entry fee for non-competitive runners is $25 on or before April 8th and $30 after.  For timed D-tag timing system participants the fee is $30 ($35 after April 8th), and the fee for children under 8 in the Deacon Dash is $15.  The fee includes a custom-designed T-shirt, pre-run and post-race refreshments, awards, door prizes, and entertainment.  For an additional $5 donation, participants can also choose to receive a Tyvec Placard on which they may write the name of someone who was special in their life and wear their name to honor and remember them as they participate in the Hope Run. People may also be part of the fun without taking part in the run or walk by signing up as a Proud in the Crowd participant for a gift of $25. Proud in the Crowd participants will also receive the 16th Annual Hospice Hope Run commemorative designed T-shirt.

BB&T is the major sponsor for this year’s Hospice Hope Run.  Kimberly Van Scoy and Michelle Kennedy, both of WXII 12 News, along with Lora Songster of WMAG 99.5, are this year’s honorary chairs.

All proceeds from the Hospice Hope Run go to the Hospice & Palliative CareCenter. The majority of Hospice & Palliative CareCenter’s revenue comes from the reimbursement from Medicare, Medicaid and Private Insurance. No one is turned away because of their inability to pay. The financial gap between reimbursement and patient needs amounts to approximately $1.7 million dollars a year.

For more information about the Hospice Hope Run, go to www.support4hospice.org or call Carolyn Breese at Hospice & Palliative CareCenter at 336-768-3972.
