Paint the town Red during February in observance of ‘Heart Month’

-A A +A
By The Staff

February is “Heart Month” in Harrison County and the Harrison County Go Red for Women committee wants your help in “Painting This Town Red.” It’s easy, all you have to do is decorate your store windows in red or illuminate your homes and businesses with red lights.  Let’s get Cynthiana listed on the national Go Red website by showing our support.

Last year the court house and Hospice placed red lamps illuminating their buildings. We hope to see this again this year. We also have new banners that will adorn the bridges and the entrance of Harrison Memorial Hospital that will go up Feb. 1. Watch Channel 6 for the Harrison County Schools Heart Awareness video done by students.

Remember, once you get heart disease, you can’t get rid of it. Join us in educating the citizens of Harrison County about the No. 1 killer of men and women.
