Pat, Susan Corbett, Steve edited for PLThe PBCC honored PA First Lady Susan Corbett and former First Ladies last week during a special “Knock Out Breast Cancer” rose dedication in the Governor’s Residence Gardens.

The ceremony featured special Pink Knock Out Roses donated by Star Roses and Plants/Conard Pyle in collaboration with Morris Arboretum.  The roses will serve as a living legacy  to showcase the crucial work of the First Ladies and the importance of our goal to “find a cure for breast cancer now… so our daughters won’t have to.”

The PBCC also honored a few special Grassroots Partners at the event. North Dickinson Elementary School Students Sam, Clay, Nicholas, Delaney and Mia from Carlisle have raised thousands of dollars – all by asking their fellow classmates, teachers and staff to contribute their spare change.  The Penny Wars competition spread throughout the school district.  Last year, Penny Wars raised nearly $6,000 for the PBCC.

If you would like to see the Pink Knock Out Roses up close, the Governor’s Residence offers summer garden tours every Tuesday and Thursday between 10:00am and 2:00p.  Tours are conducted at no charge, but reservations are required. For more information on the tours, click here.

    Often times people complete their daily diet plans with unhealthy foods and snacks that are ready-made. Soy products can replace milk and dairy products which can sometimes have growth hormones added to it and make your fibroids even worse. She had to really watch out for the things she ate by paying very close attention to portion control and what kinds of foods to opt for.

    Whatever your field of business or informative website is about, finding contextually reliable content is the best way to ensure that your website gets high rankings in the results page. The search engine wants the user to have the best experience possible, so these sites are almost always at the top. Many clients do not fit neatly into any of these scenarios.
