Crossroads Conversation School for Women will meet at Avery Park this summer every Tuesday at 10:00 am.
This will be an informal meet-up - you don't need to register and can come as much or as little as you would like. You are welcome to invite friends and bring your children, too.

If you come, you will need to bring a chair or blanket to sit on. You will also need to plan to wear a mask as not everyone in the group is vaccinated (and you should stay home if you have any COVID symptoms).

Meeting will be under the trees near the train engine at Avery Park (near the Lions Shelter).

June is National Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Awareness Month.

Have you ever heard of CMV? Most people have never heard of this very common virus. Cytomegalovirus (pronounced sy-toe-MEG-a-low-vy-rus), or CMV, is a virus that infects people of all ages. Over half of adults have been infected with CMV by age 40. Most people infected with CMV show no signs or symptoms. When a baby is born with cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, it is called congenital CMV. About one out of every 200 babies is born with congenital CMV infection. About one in five babies with congenital CMV infection will have long-term health problems. Check out this tip sheet to find out some simple steps to protect yourself and your unborn baby.

For more information about CMV, visit: https://www.cdc.gov/cmv/overview.html

Feeding our kids can be stressful- for us and them. Sometimes it's helpful to follow their lead and remember that portion sizes differ during infancy, baby-hood, toddler years, and beyond.

Sometimes babies can eat a lot. Because they triple in size in the first year of life! Toddlers, however, may eat very tiny amounts of food. Less than babies, even. Because they aren't growing as much.⁣⁠
⁣⁠
This is why the most powerful thing you can do with your little one is to let them decide whether to eat and how much. Don't push them to eat. Just watch them decide how much to eat.⁣⁠
⁣⁠
Maybe your little one eats the plate on the left some days. That's okay. It's also okay if your child eats two bites at a meal and is done. It's normal. It's normal. It's normal.⁣⁠

This Memorial Day Weekend, many of us will take some time to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. With questions continuing to surface about County Risk Levels and how guidance varies for fully vaccinated folks, we thought it might be worthwhile to break down how you can safely commemorate the holiday weekend.

In counties that aren’t at Lower Risk, it’s important that folks continue to keep their gatherings small, outdoors and physically distanced.

While no one is required to wear a mask outdoors anymore, we still recommend wearing a face covering in crowded areas, especially if you are partially vaccinated or unvaccinated.

And, remember, it’s ok to go at your own pace. If you’re not comfortable going without a mask outdoors, it’s okay to continue wearing one.

You can read more about observing Memorial Day safely on the Oregon Vaccine News blog: ow.ly/depn50EYbq6

And, if you're heading outside this weekend, be sure to check the latest on beach advisories at bit.ly/2yOhk5C and algae advisories here at bit.ly/2yG3ouq.
