"Show of Support Celebration"

Let's face it, cancer stinks! If you're going through this awful time there is help and support. It's at a great place called Gilda's Club! And coming up on September 15, Gilda's Club is having their signature event "Show of Support Celebration" at the Pfister Hotel. The evening will include:
  • Fashion show with models (all cancer survivors) taking the runway in the latest fall fashions;
  • Lee Kass Cancer Support Community Philanthropic Award presented to Mark Shapiro, executive director of the Jewish Community Center; and
  • Official kick-off of the Gilda's Club Community Challenge Grant Campaign
As you may know, Gilda's Club offers a much-needed support community for individuals and families who are living with cancer. Educational programs, emotional support, networking, social and wellness activities are offered to participants free of charge.  And now, operating in a community-based model, Gilda's Club is bringing the program to people where they live, work and worship. Show your support and come on out to this great event on September 15th. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling 414.962.8201, ext. 102.

Eco-friendly Control of Thrips
Poorly developed flowers, stunted plants and silvery streaks on leaves are indications thrips may be feeding on your plants. These tiny insects have file-like mouthparts they use to puncture the outer surface of leaves, stems and flowers and suck out plant sap. They are very small and difficult to detect. Hold a white piece of paper under the plant and shake. Or remove the petals of damaged flowers, place in a sealed jar with 70% alcohol and shake the jar to dislodge and detect the pests. Control is difficult and often not needed as the damage is discovered after the thrips have finished feeding. Provide the proper growing conditions and care for your plants. Avoid excess nitrogen that promotes lush succulent growth these pests prefer. And remove spent flowers that tend to harbor the insects. Manage weeds in the garden and keep thrip-susceptible plants away from weedy areas where the pest populations tend to be high. A bit more information: Beneficial insects like predatory thrips, green lacewings, minute pirate bugs and some parasitic wasps feed upon plant damaging thrips. Invite these good bugs into the garden by planting a diversity of plants and avoiding persistent pesticides. Visit the University of California IPM online for more details on this pest.
