According to HolidayInsights.com,  October 24th is National Bologna Day.

Some of you might think that National Bologna Day is a lot of baloney!

Here are some facts: Properly spelled Bologna, it is sometimes spelled “Baloney” because it is pronounced like the latter spelling. Bologna is a sausage. It’s commonly used as a luncheon meat.

When it comes to bologna, there definitely is a variety. There is what you and I would call regular Bologna, German Bologna, Beef Bologna, Kosher Bologna, and more.

Depending upon the kind of Bologna, it could include pork, beef, chicken, and spices.

It’s easy to enjoy National Bologna Day . Have a Bologna sandwich.  Try fried bologna. And, don’t forget the mustard!

We certainly hope that at the end of National Bologna Day, that you are “full of Baloney”!

Dr. Kenneth Magid, of Advanced Dentistry of Westchester offers some advice on some healthy alternatives for kids as Halloween will be approaching.

Every Halloween kids take joy in trick-or-treating and revel in the many  treats they have collected. You’re not going to be able to stop them from getting the candy, but when trick-or-treaters come to your door this year, you can provide healthy alternatives that can also be a big hit.
 
Dr. Kenneth Magid of Advanced Dentistry of Westchester and dentist to the stars, offers advice on healthy alternatives you can provide to kids this Halloween:
 
Joy in Toys. Small toys available in online catalogues are great options and don’t have to break the bank. Kids love playing with toys as much as they love eating candy and they last longer too.

Healthy Snacks Also Taste Good. This year, we are giving out spry mints and gum which help to prevent tooth decay. This treat should not be given out in large quantities and should not be given to very young children. Other healthy alternatives include little packs of carrots and pretzels. Parents will appreciate that you went the extra step to provide a healthy treat.

Choose Candy Wisely. If you have to give out candy, dark chocolate is a much healthier option and is better for your teeth then other candies. Avoid sticky and sour candy, which helps to dissolve teeth.  Avoid fruit by the foot, it’s like gluing sugar to your teeth!

Remember, let your kids eat as much candy as you want on Halloween night but the next day make sure it’s out of the house. Stay safe and never eat unwrapped or unsealed candy. Although horseplay is part of Halloween, a little common sense avoids traumatic injury.

Ben’s Bells Project with Bell-Making Workshop

Resurrection Grammar School recently held a bell-making workshop to support the Newtown, CT chapter of Ben’s Bells Project as part of the school’s Make a Difference and Kindness programs.

Over 125 Resurrection students, parents and grandparents gathered to help paint clay pieces that will be assembled into “Ben’s Bells” wind chimes. These Ben’s Bells will be randomly placed in public spaces all around Rye for people to take as a reminder to practice intentional kindness.

“The Ben’s Bells workshop was a beautiful example of the Resurrection School family coming together to promote kindness throughout our community,” said Sister Anne Massell, Resurrection School Principal. “Through Resurrection’s faith-based education, we put a premium on teaching our students the importance of respecting and helping others. Ben’s Bells Project was the perfect partner to highlight the impact a small gesture can make on a broader level,” added Massell.

Ben’s Bell’s Project was founded in Tucson, AZ, by Jeanette Mare, whose son Ben died unexpectedly at age 3. This organization is a way for her to pay forward the kindness she received from her community. Through the creation and hanging of Ben’s Bells, their mission is to inspire, educate and motivate people to realize the impact of intentional kindness. Thousands of Ben’s Bells have been shared across the U.S. to share this strong message and philosophy. It takes 10 people to make a Ben’s Bell wind chime by the time it is ready to be hung. The Newtown, CT studio of Ben’s Bells worked with Resurrection.

For nearly 90 years, Resurrection School has been dedicated to faith-based education that gives its young students a solid academic background but also provides them with a foundation of Christian values and a sense of responsibility in society. In a safe, nurturing environment, our students are encouraged to respect each individual person, to think and learn, and to develop each of their God-given abilities for the good of all.
