Staff are to be at the Livingston County Fair July 17th from 10 until 1 o'clock; and at the July 12th Mudcats baseball game from 6:30 until 8:30.

Free T-DAP vaccinations will be available at the Daviess county health department in Gallatin July 23rd from 8 until 4, July 26th from 7 until 3, and July 30th from 8 until 4. No appointments are needed.
