The Bond Vote has been announced for June 7th from 7:00AM to 7:00PM at the Hyde Park Town Clerks Office.  Save the date and stay tuned for more exciting news and concise information.

From the Nurse

On Saturday, April 30th, local pharmacies and police departments will be taking part in a Rx Take Back Event.  From 10 am to 2 pm you can take unwanted prescription medication to five locations in the Lamoille County area.  The sheriff’s office here in Hyde Park, Stowe Police Department, Hardwick Police Department or to Kinney Drugs in Morrisville or Cambridge.  This program is designed to get rid of unwanted medication in homes where they may become a poisoning risk.  

The Northern New England Poison Center has some suggestions to help prevent poisoning.  An increasing source of poisoning even amongst adults is medication, both prescription and over-the-counter. 

    Their top 5 childhood medication safety tips are:

  • Teach children that they should not taste anything unless an adult who they know and trust gives it to them.
  • Keep medication in its original, child-resistant packaging.
  • Store medication up high and out of the reach of children (preferably a locked cabinet).
  • Keep track of medications given to a child to prevent multiple care givers giving the same dose twice.
  • Use a properly marked measurement spoon or dropper (not the silverware teaspoon).

Proper disposal of unwanted medication is also important.  If possible, avoid getting more medication than you will need.  But if you do find you have expired or un-needed medication check with your pharmacist to see if there is an authorized drop off location.  If not medication can be disposed of down the toilet or removed from its bottle, mixed with coffee grounds or kitty litter and disposed of in the garbage.  Don’t discard prescription medications in their original bottles, loose in the garbage or burn them.
