    2017/08/09

    General Surgeon Dr. Ovleto Ciccarelli is offering skin cancer screenings at Gifford’s Community Health Centers throughout the summer. These private screenings are free and open to everyone, not just Gifford patients.

    Dr. Ciccarelli notes that early skin cancer warning signs can appear on hard-to-see areas of the body, or in areas that might be difficult to find for the elderly or people living alone. He is concerned about an increase in the number of patients he sees with basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and malignant melanomas.

    This thorough, full-body screening will identify any problem areas and Dr. Ciccarelli can suggest follow-up care if needed. To schedule an appointment call 728-2430.

    Free Skin Cancer Screening Clinics

    All day
    2017/08/16

    General Surgeon Dr. Ovleto Ciccarelli is offering skin cancer screenings at Gifford’s Community Health Centers throughout the summer. These private screenings are free and open to everyone, not just Gifford patients.

    Dr. Ciccarelli notes that early skin cancer warning signs can appear on hard-to-see areas of the body, or in areas that might be difficult to find for the elderly or people living alone. He is concerned about an increase in the number of patients he sees with basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and malignant melanomas.

    This thorough, full-body screening will identify any problem areas and Dr. Ciccarelli can suggest follow-up care if needed. To schedule an appointment call 728-2430.

    Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge

    JUNIOR WATERFOWL HUNTER TRAINING PROGRAM

    SATURDAY, AUGUST 19, 2017   (8:00am – 4:30pm)

    The Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge Junior Waterfowl Hunter Training Program is being offered to young hunters who want to learn more about the sport of waterfowl hunting and experience a high quality waterfowl hunt.  The program is offered to youngsters 12 to 17 years of age who have an adult waterfowl hunter to serve as a mentor.

    The Junior Waterfowl Hunter Training Program is a joint educational effort of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge, the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department, the Vermont Chapter of Ducks Unlimited, the Sportsman’s Club of Franklin County and volunteers to teach young hunters about waterfowl hunting.  The program instructs beginning hunters in the knowledge and skills necessary to become responsible, respected individuals who strive to learn all they can about the species being hunted and to become knowledgeable in firearms safety, hunter ethics and wildlife conservation.

    Mentors and youths who would like to participate in this year’s program must pre-register with the Refuge by Friday, August 18. Participation in the program will be limited to 40 enrollees.

    All mentors and young hunters must attend the one-day training session on Saturday, August 19, with instruction beginning at 8:00 AM at the Franklin County Sportsman’s Club on Route 36 (Maquam Shore Road) in St. Albans.  The training session will be held rain or shine, so participants should dress appropriately.  All youth participants are asked to bring the shotgun they intend to use for hunting to the training for a patterning session.

    Junior Hunters and their mentors, once they complete the training, are awarded exclusive use of several premier hunting areas at Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge for the first four weekends of the waterfowl hunting season, however, only the Junior Hunter may shoot.  Blind sites and hunting dates for the Jr. Hunters are determined by a lottery conducted at the annual training session.

    To register for this year’s program, call refuge headquarters at 802-868-4781.  Please include the mentor’s name and youth’s name and age, address and telephone number.

    Waterfowl hunters of all ages are welcome to attend the training on Saturday, August 19.  It is a great opportunity to improve waterfowl identification and other waterfowl hunting skills for the coming season.  Children under the age of 12 are welcome to come for the day to learn about the program but will not be allowed to participate in the refuge hunt until they are 12 years old.

    If you have any questions about the program, please contact David Frisque, Park Ranger, at 802-868-4781.

    The mission of the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.  We are both a leader and trusted partner in fish and wildlife conservation, known for our scientific excellence, stewardship of lands and natural resources, dedicated professionals and commitment to public service.  For more information on our work and the people who make it happen, visit www.fws.gov
