Local Physical Therapist Encourages Literacy
Brewer, ME - Carol Lane, founder of Results Physical Therapy and Wellness Center, has been setting a stellar example in bringing goodwill to the community. In addition to the quality health care she gives to her patients, she also works to raise the literacy level of students in schools throughout Maine. Carol has personally given out thousands of books to schools in the state of Maine.
Her purpose has been to provide captivating stories to help get more children and young adults reading-a vital part of helping to build a stronger community.
"I feel it is very important," says Carol, "to provide a program like the Golden Age Stories Listen-And-Learn Program to our kids and teens that enables them to improve their literacy, increase their vocabulary and at the same time gives them a better understanding of our culture through these historically accurate and well-researched stories, that are captivating and entertaining at the same time."
Please feel free to participate in this literacy crusade to raise the reading level of our youth in schools. To learn more about the Golden Age Stories please visit www.goldenagestories.com or send an email to email@example.com.
Did You Know That Recycling Ink Cartridges Saves Oil?
Results Physical Therapy and Wellness Center continues to collect old cell phones and ink cartridges at both locations, Brewer and Dexter, in support of America's Schools Recycling Program. We have already filled three boxes and it is barely June!! With the help of our patients and the community drop offs we are well on our way to beating last years 4 boxes! Thank you for all the help!
Recycling ink and toner cartridges is such a great cause; we are helping the planet and benefiting schools. Every cartridge that is discarded in landfills takes over 1,000 years to decompose. Each laser toner cartridge recycled saves three quarts of oil that is required to produce a new cartridge!!
With the price of oil at all time highs, this is an easy way to help cut costs and reduce waste. If you know of a local school that would like to be involved and benefit from this program, please contact us at (207) 992-4042 or visit America's Schools Recycling Program at www.americas-schools.org/recycling to sign up.

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a nonprofit public benefit corporation that empowers youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions and live drug-free.
No one, especially a young person, likes to be lectured about what he or she can or cannot do. Thus, we provide the facts that empower youth to choose not to take drugs in the first place. Additionally our Truth About Drugs campaign consists of activities that they can join which popularize drug-free living. These activities are simple, effective and can involve people of all ages.
