Every year, Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver hosts a poster contest for all fifth-graders in the 108th District. This year’s theme was focused on drug and alcohol abuse, and was titled, “Too Smart to Start.” More than 150 students from public and private schools, and students who are home schooled participated in this contest. Pictured with Rep. Culver is the grand prize winner, Amelia Hoffman, from Oaklyn Elementary School in Sunbury. On June 6, Amelia traveled to Harrisburg and spent the day with Rep. Culver at the Capitol.
Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver sponsored House Resolution 836 which designated May 11-17 as “Women’s Lung Health Week” in Pennsylvania. Every five minutes a woman living in the United States is told she has lung cancer. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death of women in the United States, surpassing breast cancer in 1987, and the death rate in women has more than doubled over the last 35 years. Pictured with Culver at the Capitol are Deb Brown, from the American Lung Association, and Peg Callahan, from the Winter Group, all wearing turquoise in recognition of Women’s Healthy Lung Week.
