Attention Marys River Gleaners Family we are having a green bean glean on Monday morning August 6 at 8:00 a.m.. It will be located at 34306 NE Electric RD, Please just park near the other cars and wait for Susan or her representative to lead us back. This is a big area wide glean and as the largest gleaning group with Linn-Benton Food share we need a minimum of 8 people to participate in this glean. We appreciate those that have participated in previous gleans, but there are quite a few members who have not participated in any gleans, Please come and help us show that Marys River Gleaners has a group of members that care about their group.

Please be on time and bring a bucket. Come join your fellow gleaners as we try to do our part to help our community and enjoy the peacefulness of this beautiful blueberry patch.

Hello Marys River Gleaners Family....I am writing to all of you today to let you know that we have once again experienced a theft from our group. Today we were notified that someone broke in to our storage shed and stole our chainsaw, the battery for the splitter, and 2 gas cans with fuel in them. The people involved also tore the doors off the shed. We would like to thank Cookie Marie Johnson and Carl Bass for picking up the garbage that was strewn across the property and Tim Worl, Bill Nobles and Patty Nobles for reattaching the doors.

A Message from Cookie...
A cardiologist determined that heart attacks can be triggered by dehydration.

Good Thing To Know. From The Mayo Clinic. How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink anything before going to bed because they'll have to get up during the night?

Heart Attack and Water - Drinking one glass of water before going to bed avoids stroke or heart attack. Interesting.......



Something else I didn't know .... I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time

Answer from my Cardiac Doctor: Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc.) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.

Correct time to drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body:

2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs

1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion

1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure

1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

I can also add to this... My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.

Mayo Clinic on Aspirin - Dr. Virend Somers is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic who is the lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.

1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.

The Reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.

2. Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest – years! (When it gets old, it smells like vinegar).

Please read on..

Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets.

Why keep Aspirin by your bedside?

It's about Heart Attacks - There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.



Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.

The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep. If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.

Afterwards: - Call 000. - Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by. Say "Heart Attack!" - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. - Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and ........DO NOT LIE DOWN!

Greetings Marys River Gleaners Family
We were recently notified of several recalls regarding products we may have distributed in the past few months. They include Nutritional Yeast, Chia Seeds, and Pumpkin Seeds. The Pumpkin Seeds were packaged in the bag that is shown. Please toss any of these products if you have them on your shelves. Marys River Gleaners and our partners, Linn-Benton Food Share and The Oregon Food Bank, strive to offer safe food products for your consumption. Our family matters to all of us.

Greetings Corvallis Community....My name is Patty Nobles and I am the Secretary for Marys River Gleaners. I realize that the loss of our wood splitter has been mentioned several times already, but I would like to put out some other information regarding the splitter. This machine was donated to us by Pape Machinery out of Eugene last October in order for us to complete our obligation to Linn-Benton Wood share by providing people in our community who use wood as a primary source of heat that are either low-income, disabled or elderly. This is the latest information that we have regarding the theft that occurred between late Thursday night to early Saturday morning. On Thursday night at approximately 10:00 p.m. a member who was delivering donations noticed a white cargo van backed up to our wood pile. When the member let his presence be known to the 2 male occupants of the van they left the site that is located in Pioneer Park. The member was able to get a license plate number U(V or R)Q394. We are not sure if this van was involved in the theft, but they were at the site when they were not supposed to be there. The serial number for the splitter is 1A2010245. We just need this splitter brought back in the same condition that it was when it was removed from our property without permission.

03/12/2018

Hello friends Gleaners and adoptees someone stole our splitter this weekend it really broke my heart it was donated to s brand new I just like to say to whoever took our splitter that I was upset and angry in the beginning then I came home and prayed for you it's not going to put a complete stop to our wood gleaning my wood coordinator splitting wood by hand I I'm sorry that you needed it bad enough to steal it but I'm going to keep you in my prayers

Hello Gleaner's Family....We will be doing repack on March 7, 2018 at the Linn-Benton Foodshare warehouse in Tangent at 8:30 a.m., and we need help. Our group is slated to take care of the cleanup after repack and more people will make this task go faster. So come and join the fun....This is a good way to get in your volunteer hours plus there is a potluck after repack is finished. Bring a dish and meet fellow gleaners from the area while enjoying the community spirit of the day.

Attention Marys River Gleaners Family....With winter upon us our produce levels have dropped significantly. So until further notice we are limiting shopping for produce to once a week. You can still come twice a week, but like with our meat you will only be able to get produce once a week. We also would like everyone to remember that you need to shop for only the family size that is listed on your application. We need to be able to provide food for all of our gleaners family....Thank you for your cooperation.
