Doctor joins local clinic; band sponsors food drive

HARRISVILLE — Grove City Medical Center recently announced the addition of Dr. Cheryl A. Thompson to its medical staff.

A family practice physician, Dr. Thompson has joined Family Health Care Partners and will staff its Harrisville clinic. She has big shoes to fill here. The late Dr. Kenneth Dunkle opened the Harrisville Clinic and served there until his death.

Dr. Thompson grew up in the Sarver area of Butler County. She is a graduate of the University of St. Eustatius School of Medicine. She completed her family practice residency and geriatrics fellowship at West Virginia University Charleston Area Medical Center, Charleston, West Virginia. Dr. Thompson also found time to attend physician's assistant training, and worked in that capacity for 15 years.

We welcome Dr. Cheryl Thompson to the Harrisville cinic, and look forward to having her to serve us and our friends and neighbors for many years to come. We are happy to have a physician here again.

Harrisville Community Band

A special note -- at their fall concert on Nov. 11 Harrisville Community Band will sponsor a food drive to benefit the Food Cupboards in Grove City and Slippery Rock. When you come to the concert, please bring some canned or packaged nonperishable food items. Everything will be divided between the two cupboards. The band wishes to do something special for those not so blessed this holiday season.

A lighter moment

Isolated thoughts from a twisted mind:

1. Friends may come and go, but enemies tend to accumulate.

2. How does Teflon stick to the pan?

3. All those who believe in psycho kinesis raise my hand.

4. Laughing stock: Cattle with a sense of humor.

5. Wear short sleeves! Support your right to bare arms.

6. Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?

7. I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

Thought for the Week

"The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, learn about them, or even seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them." -- Denis Waitley
