Flu immunizations available on Monday

The Leavenworth County Health Department will provide flu and pneumonia immunizations next week at several locations, including Tonganoxie.

The cost is $10 for the flu vaccine, $15 for a pneumonia vaccine and $5 for a tetanus/diphtheria booster. No routine immunizations will be offered at the clinics.

The clinics will be:

11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday at the Senior Center in Easton

3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday at the 4-H Building at the Leavenworth County Fairgrounds in Tonganoxie.

3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Price Chopper, Leavenworth.

9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Justice Center's training room, Leavenworth.

3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Food 4 Less in Leavenworth.

Recycling drop-off set Saturday morning

The next SORT Recycling drop-off will be from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Leavenworth County Fairgrounds.

Karen Stephenson's fourth-grade class will help collect recyclable items.

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, this will be the only drop-off this month. The next recycling will be Dec. 9.

Greenhouse plans open house, tours

To help area residents get into the holiday spirit, Alex R. Masson Inc. greenhouses is hosting "A Christmas Poinsettia," an open house and greenhouse tour on Nov. 18.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to noon at Masson's Linwood greenhouse, which is on the north side of Kansas Highway 32, west of Linwood.

More than three acres of poinsettias will be on display, but because Masson's is a wholesale grower, no plants will be for sale.

Cancer support group to meet Monday

"Thanks Living" will be part of the sharing time at the Breast Cancer Support Group at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Tonganoxie Public Library.

Correction

A story in last Wednesday's edition of The Mirror about the cleanup of creeks in Tonganoxie incorrectly identified where trees and limbs would be taken after they are removed from creeks. They will be taken to the county quarry on Kansas Highway 16.
