For most seasoned Minnesotans, getting outside this summer after the long winter is the first thing on their mind.  However, it’s important to make sure to think of your skin when you do so.  Sunscreen application is an affordable solution to preventing easily obtained skin damage.  According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), how you use this product, and what other protective measures you take, will make a significant difference in how well you protect yourself and your family from sunburn, skin cancer, early skin aging and other risks of overexposure to the sun.  Please view these Sun Safety Tips for more information on how to stay safe this summer.

Water Fun!
Whether you are taking a family trip to the lake, or travelling out to the ocean, we love to play in the water.  We would like to remind you to be wary of your fellow companions in the water and your own water toys. Be sure to visit the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources  (MN DNR), for information on life jackets, and boating safety plus lake/water restrictions this summer.
