No Tricks!  Real Treats at the Library!
On Tuesday afternoon, October 31st, from 1-3PM, Hartzell’s Pharmacy President Vincent Hartzell, PharmD, will present the next  “Hartzell’s Health Talks” with a program that will give you a customized “Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Review.”  As those of you who have attended past “Health Talks” already know, the professional team at Hartzell’s has consistently provided an outstanding medical service to members of our community.  This program is all that and more.  Dr. Vincent Hartzell will be giving individual recommendations for Medicare Part D providers, customized to your individual needs.  Treat yourself to the opportunity to learn about your Medicare Plan D options.  Please come with a list of your medications, if you are not already a Hartzell’s Pharmacy client.  Refreshments and Door Prizes round out the afternoon.

On a more conventional theme, don’t miss this treat, a Spooktacular of Halloween stories for children of all ages, Oct. 26th at 6pm.  The Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild members, Ingrid Bohn, Denise McCormack and Karen Maurer, have stories for young children from 6-6:30, after which children may listen to more stories in the Children’s Room while their parents and older siblings enjoy scary stories. Come in costume!  And yes, there will be yummy treats! A donation of a canned good will be gratefully accepted for Second Harvest.
