All nurses in Hamilton County are invited to a Heart Teaching Program for Nurses, being sponsored by the Hamilton County Health Association, Inc. in cooperation with the Franklin County Health Association, Inc. The program will be held in Friday at the Sunmount Hospital, Tupper Lake.

It is financed by the Heart Fund of the two counties as professional heart education. A new and highly-rated film, “Myocardial Infarction, the Nurse’s Role”, will be shown. This 45-minute professional film covers a great deal of ground, beginning with the heart attack and going through convalescence.

A panel of three professional medical authorities will be present to conduct the discussion period following the film. Cooperating are Sunmount Hospital and Mercy General Hospital, Tupper Lake.

At INLET, the New York State Conservation Department recently announced the signing of 35 purchase agreements at a cost of $87,694.

All are welcome to a World Day of Prayer Serviced at the Church of the Lakes in Inlet in February. The World Day of Prayer, observed each year on the first Friday of Lent, is sponsored by women of the major Protestant and Orthodox communions.

It has a meaningful history of more than 75 years. Prayers and giving for the world-wide mission of the Church have been its primary purpose. It traditionally brings people together across denominational, racial, national and cultural boundaries to pray for the needs of the world to make an offering to carry out the Church missions around the world.

The World Day of Prayer began with the vision and dedication of one woman and in the providence of God it has grown to involve millions of women around the world. In gratitude and humility we in this area are called to play our part in this world-wide fellowship of prayer and witness.
