Today’s Fun Fact: The healthiest place in the world is in Panama. A small valley near Volcán in Panama has garnered the distinction of being the world's healthiest place to live, according to a 2018 report by International Living. Called Shangri-La Valley, the area is home to beautiful scenery, a low cost of living, and a significantly longer life expectancy than the surrounding areas. All in all, the world's healthiest areas have some common factors, according to the ranking: a warm climate, an active social scene, healthy food, and a slower pace of life that makes for less daily stress.

Orange Shirt Day: The annual Orange Shirt Day is tomorrow, September 30th. The orange shirt opens the door to conversations about the impact of Residential Schools around the world. Here in Wisconsin there were 12 boarding schools that attempted to assimilate First Nations children from the 1800s until 1930s. The September date was chosen because it signifies the time each year in which First Nations children were taken from their families and sent to residential schools to live. Please consider wearing an orange shirt tomorrow, Thursday, September 30th. To learn more about Orange Shirt Day please visit the link below.
