What is a Thunderclap Headache (TCH) and What MUST You Do IMMEDIATELY If You Have One?

Excruciating thunderclap headaches strike the entire head suddenly like a clap of thunder. The pain of these headaches peaks within 60 seconds and then slowly dissipates. These headaches are uncommon, but can be symptoms of potentially life-threatening conditions like aneurysms and stroke.  Even if your headache has ended, call 911 or get to a hospital as soon as possible and insist on receiving a CT scan.  Learn more about TCHs here.

Maple Lake This Summer

This year, swim lessons with the fabulous Lainey Selby at Maple Lake for children eight months – 13 years old will be held twice a week on Mondays and Fridays for six weeks, from June 27 to August 5 (no lessons July 4). Groups will be organized based on age, ability, and swimmers’ time constraints.  A new offering this year is a “parent and me” class for ages 8 months to 2 years.  You can sign up here.

Lifeguards are needed for Maple Lake this summer.  Pay is $17.00 per hour.  Lifeguard hours are from 12noon – 6pm, seven days a week (includes ½ hour break).  Lifeguards must be certified in Lifesaving, CPR, and First Aid (we can help you pay for the training).  Call Tom Land or John Hutchinson for details. 

Because we are not able (so far) to have two lifeguards on duty at all times, we are not planning to have a diving board for this season. Parents are responsible for their children and should always watch them when they are in the water.  When lifeguards are not present, swimming is at your own risk.

WG United Methodist Church (WGUMC) Welcomes Minister Margie Matthews

At the July 3, 2022, 11:00 am service, WGUMC is delighted to be welcoming our new minister, Margie Matthews. Minister Margie is a lifelong member of the Hopkins United Methodist Church in Highland, Maryland, where she serves the congregation as Lay Leader and the first Certified Lay Minister of the church.  She strongly believes that a good leader is a good listener who will walk alongside others for the common Good of transforming the World.  All are invited to join WGUMC in person or over Zoom to welcome her to the WGUMC community.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,
What are these?

These markers are some of the new tees set up in Woodward Park to play disc golf.  The Town installed a disc golf basket in the park under the big oaks behind the stone fireplace. You can start anywhere in the park or play a nine-tee, one-basket course (PDF). Throw a Frisbee disc toward the disc golf basket. When the disc hits the hanging chains above the basket, it falls in. Nice shot!  Questions about the course or how to play?  Contact Tom Land.
