Bariatric Surgery Info Meeting Set

The Montrose Bariatric Informational Group will be hosting guest speaker William S. Peters, D.O., FACS at their July 17 meeting at the Rosemont Inn, 21 Lake Ave., Montrose, at 7 p.m.

The Montrose Bariatric Informational Group was formed in 2001 to provide peer support, nutritional pre- and post-surgery education. We feel at this time, we need to provide further education to others exploring the possibility of having gastric bypass surgery due to morbid obesity. This informational meting will be free to the public, however seating is limited.

Dr. Peters will cover three types of surgeries; Vertical Banded Gastroplasty (VBG), Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RNY) and the Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch (BPD/DS, commonly referred to as just DS).

Dr. Peters has been working constantly towards the distribution of information and education of a service to patients who recognize the benefit of what we are doing. There will be a question and answer period to speak to Dr. Peters and to several bypass patients. You will be able to see how their lives have changed since their surgery.

We look forward to you taking time out of your busy schedule to spend time learning how you can improve the rest of your life. Please contact Annette Rogers at 396–0350 for your reserved seat and directions by July 13.

Woodbourne Preserve Celebrates 50Years

DIMOCK – There are enough candles on Woodbourne’s birthday cake to toast marshmallows, but Woodbourne Forest & Wildlife Preserve is still as fresh and beautiful as ever. The approximately 600-acre preserve in Dimock, PA – part of The Nature Conservancy’s worldwide system of ever-wild lands – became a nature sanctuary 50 years ago, when Francis R. Cope, Jr. and his family donated the land to The Nature Conservancy. Come to the preserve and celebrate Woodbourne’s birthday party on July 16 from 1-4 p.m.

The party will feature guided and self-guided hikes, free Woodbourne party favors and birthday cupcakes. Revelers will also enjoy the wonderful gifts Woodbourne has received – the recently-opened Ben Stone Memorial Lookout Tower, and a brand-new trail called Cope’s Ramble, created in June by volunteers from the Keystone Trail Association. This approximately 6-mile trail takes in hills, wetlands, a majestic hickory grove and streamside views. Shorter trails include the Nature Trail at about .75 miles, and the intermediate length Woodruff’s Hill Trail.

The Nature Conservancy, Keystone Trails Association and Woodbourne itself will have informational tables at the Birthday Party.

For more information about Woodbourne, visit, or call 278-3384.
