Let s offer the best of the season with twinkling lights and fresh greens, where people come to greet their friends and share in the merriment of Christmas Walk. Geneva is the destination to dine with friends and family and to find that special gift in one of our shops. This is where parents bring their children to enjoy a carriage ride and get a peppermint stick from Santa or a fresh roasted chestnut. We are most fortunate to have the City contribute labor to install all the greens and lights but it takes a substantial budget to create this picture postcard. The dollars raised through this request help us pay for all the greens, the lights, the candy and Santa s trip from the North Pole. We depend on this fund drive to help us cover a portion of the cost. Please help us continue this wonderful tradition send your donation. We will put your name on Santa s list and in an upcoming newsletter.

10 10 SOUNDINGS The Geneva Chamber of Commerce Newsletter 35 Healthy Years Last month, over three decades of being a community resource for alternative products and holistic health solutions and services came to an end. JR and Craig Carmany are closing Soup to Nuts. In 1990, they took over Soup to Nuts. At that time, it was the only place to find alternatives such as gluten-free bread or non-dairy milk products. Natural food and holistic health were still considered out there and not part of the mainstream culture. Their own intention was to provide a family-friendly natural foods store -- focused on quality products, customer service, and natural health education and they did just that. For the future, JR s focus will be on developing HealthWise Holistic Services, expanding her expertise and her availability and hosting more informational classes. With the closing of the store, JR will be more available for her clients. She will work out of temporary locations in Geneva and Batavia while seeking a more permanent location. Safety for Holidays The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates there were 15,000 injuries involving holiday decorating seen in emergency departments nationwide during November and December 2012*. Thirty-four percent of those injuries involved falls, many of them falls from ladders. In fact, according to the CPSC, every year, hundreds of people fall from ladders while hanging decorations. Holiday decorating doesn t need to be a hazardous activity. Homeowners are simply not trained to follow proper safety practices, unsafe practices can lead to major injury and even death, turning the holidays from a time of celebration into a time of tragedy. If you can, use a professional for holiday decorating because of the potential for injuries due to falling and electrocution. If you can t, use these tips to improve safe practices for residents who want to manage the task on their own, based on recommendations from the CPSC**: Use proper climbing equipment. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for *** showed that while the majority of holiday decorating falls were from ladders (for example, while hanging holiday lights), these accidents were closely followed by falls from roofs (for example, while mounting an artificial Christmas tree on the roof) and furniture (for example, while standing on a table decorating a Christmas tree, standing on a chair hanging holiday decorations, or standing on a step stool when hanging a tree topper). If you plan to do your own decorating, invest in a sturdy and reliable ladder that can adapt to different heights according to your needs. Practice safe techniques. Secure ladders on even ground or use leg levelers. Don t stand on the top three rungs of a ladder, and never reach so far that the buckle on your belt is outside of the right or left rail of the ladder. Aluminum and electricity don t mix. If your ladder is metal (including aluminum) it will conduct electricity. If a live wire from holiday lights touches a metal ladder, it can cause electrocution. Is your business doing something special for Christmas Walk Weekend, Dec 5-7? Please Laura by Nov 8 to be included in our Holiday PR! Say No to Alcohol and Yes to sunlight. Save your celebrating for when the job is done. Alcohol consumption when climbing ladders can lead to injury and death. And, always decorate when the sun is up. Decorating at night is dangerous. Hopefully homeowners will leave their holiday decorating to the pros. If not, we recommend these tips to help keep area residents safe and healthy for the holiday season.
