Sometimes it seems like if you really focus and squint your eyes a bit, you can actually see the way that time flies. We’re already almost to the end of our fiscal year and we’ve accomplished so much.
The early twentieth century was a major turning point for medicine. New treatments and new vaccines were becoming available. New understandings of how disease spread and how the human body worked were being uncovered. And it was starting to become easier to spread this information to the general public how they could better take care of themselves and prevent illness. This time period also saw two of the greatest public health crises of the century: the millions of wounded of World War I and the Spanish Flu Epidemic. Dr. Rupert Blue, the Surgeon General at the time, would lead the effort to preserve the health of the public with these great tests.
Linden is well and full of fried chicken! We had a successful USDA “Farmers to Families” food distribution last Friday. We distributed over 30,000 pounds of chicken to the community. This program is a great one and developed to not waste the agriculture products that were in excess due to the COVID-19 restrictions. It has been a great thing for Linden. Thanks to Horace Hodge of the USDA and Flo Stevens of the Fairview Reunion group. Special thanks to all the volunteers who showed up and a big shout out to the Lady’s from Texana Bank who came out to help last Friday. It is rewarding work, but hot heavy work as well. There will be a vegetable distribution this Friday at 3 p.m. as well. The time is flexible and may shift, so keep an eye on lindentexas. org and Linden Texas Facebook page.
