Band Boosters Rustic Cuffs & New Uniforms
Could help us get the word out about our current fundraiser? The Band Boosters are working hard to raise the funds needed for new band uniforms.

I am attaching a flyer about our Rustic Cuff Fundraiser. We will be taking pre-paid orders until September 18th, and will have a table set up at “Meet the Cards” night, so people can place their orders then as well.

Thanks for all your support!

Collinsville Resident and Nurse Recognized as
First Cancer Treatment Centers of America - Tulsa DAISY Award Recipient
Linda Caton noted for her compassionate care to patients

TULSA, OK, July 26, 2016 – Collinsville resident Linda Caton, RN, who is a nurse in the pulmonary department at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Tulsa (CTCA), received a DAISY award for the compassionate care she gives to patients.

The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary, compassionate, and skillful care given by nurses every day. Earlier this year, CTCA in Tulsa became a DAISY Award Partner, recognizing one nurse with the honor quarterly.

From April to June, CTCA staff, patients, and caregivers, submitted more than 100 nominations for the DAISY Award. Last month, Linda was named the first recipient.

Linda was nominated for the close relationship she developed with a patient and his wife over the last two years. When the patient’s condition started to decline earlier this year, Linda drove to their home in another state to see the patient before he passed, and visited again for the memorial service – driving more than 800 miles total for both trips. Several weeks later, the patient’s wife came to CTCA in Tulsa to visit with her late husband’s physician, and she spent the weekend with Linda to celebrate their birthdays together, which are only a few days apart.

“Linda is an incredibly passionate nurse,” said Tammi Holden, RN, BSN, vice president of Oncology Patient Services. “The patients become like her own family. She truly exhibits our Mother Standard of care with each of them.”

Asphalt Overlay For South 13th Street
I saw completion from the top of the hill to the creek bridge on South 13th Street about mid-day Monday August 15, 2016, with a new asphalt overlay. The new asphalt will continue to South Street. The next block (to Spring) is also slated for roadway repairs.-- Ted Wright
