This past Saturday, sixty-five (65) children of Brooks-TLC employees enjoyed a visit with Santa (Kenny Long) and Mrs. Claus (Cindi Polowy) along with cookie decorating, crafts and plenty of treats thanks to our faithful Auxiliary friends. Thanks to all who made this happen especially Lisa Muldowney and Joanna Banach.
The annual Auxiliary of BMH Tree of Lights ceremony has been scheduled for Friday, December 8 at 7pm in the Brooks-TLC Hospital System, Inc. – Brooks campus lobby.
The annual tree lighting ceremony is a community wide remembrance and living tribute to those we love and cherish. Following the official lighting of the tree, which is donated by Toots Tree Farm in Forestville, festivities include caroling throughout the hospital and refreshments.
Your contribution of only $10 or $50 per individual name - either in honor of - or in memory of - a loved one will help the Auxiliary of BMH continue providing support to the hospital in the form of much needed patient care equipment. Names of all honorees will appear on a scroll in the hospital’s main lobby and lights will sparkle throughout December and into January.
For more information contact Lisa at 679-4774 or download an order form here.

If you’re an older adult, issues such as vision or inner ear problems, osteoporosis, and weakened muscles can throw you off balance. Chances of falling are greatly diminished through interventions that help seniors remain independent and live longer, fuller lives.
To help seniors in our community stay balanced, the Brooks Memorial Hospital Physical Therapy Department offers a periodic Balance Clinic with staff specially trained and certified in balance and vestibular issues. The popular program consists of ten sessions aimed at providing participants with the right tools and activities to improve coordination, strength and postural control.
Help prevent a trip to the emergency room, or at worst….a life-changing injury. Beginning Tuesday, October 23, the clinic will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 12 noon to 1 p.m., for five consecutive weeks through November 22. Participants learn fun exercises in a supportive environment at First United Methodist Church of Fredonia, 25 Church St., Fredonia NY. Cost is only $13 for each day attended or $130 for all 10 classes. No physician referral is required. Please arrive 30 minutes early.
