#Insulin100 - On 17 May 1921, Frederick Banting and Charles Best begin their experimental work by performing their first pancreas removal procedure on dogs to induce diabetes symptoms. Their subsequent experiments over that summer involved tying off the pancreatic ducts of other dogs to isolate and prepare an extract that would lower blood glucose levels in those those dogs whose pancreas had been removed.

It’s Armed Forces Day! Today we honor the men and women who serve in the United States Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Marine Corps, The National Guard, U.S. Navy, and United States Space Force. Domestic, abroad, and even in space, they go above and beyond to keep us safe and preserve our freedom. It’s important that we take time to recognize the sacrifices they have made for our nation. Let’s pray for them and let them know that we appreciate their service.

We hope your day is filled with much happiness!

Jefferson Cereal Challenge

πŸ’™ Another amazing challenge happening in our community to help our local food pantries! Thank you Jefferson Elementary School!!

We would encourage donations of πŸ™Œ Cheerios πŸ™Œ with the following info:

▢️ They’re made from whole grain oats, contain 3 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein, and practically a whole multi-vitamin in every serving. It's great to see boxes already donated in the video! πŸ˜€

▢️ Cheerios only have 2 grams of sugar per serving! Cheerios are also gluten-free and make a great basic cereal that you can top with any fruit, nuts or yogurt.

A reminder that the food pantries feed adults & youth! It's great to have healthier food options available for them to choose. πŸ˜€
