Lyons resident Frank Adams, who passed away December 19, 2017, was a volunteer at the Lyons Regional Library. His wife Susan McCafferty passed away days before him on December 16. Adams, an accomplished chess player, volunteered along side Aaron Caplan on Monday afternoons teaching kids to play chess through the no-fee "Fun Chess Club!" sponsored by the Lyons Regional Library.
To memorialize Frank's support of the library, and his commitment to kids learning chess, the Lyons Regional Library wanted to do something for Frank's memory. Upon hearing of this, a frequent library patron (and a neighbor of Frank) donated this handmade wood teaching chess set in his name, complete with a brass plaque in Frank's honor. This way Frank's efforts and memory will always be honored at "Fun Chess Club!" and in the minds and hearts of the library and its patrons. The donor wishes to remain anonymous.

The old phrase, “you’ve got to nip it in the bud,” is so true when it comes to addressing acute cold and flu symptoms. In exploring what works when it comes to immune stimulation and fighting seasonal illness, I look to traditions around the world that have been keeping people healthy for generations.
Contrast hydrotherapy – common to Finnish culture, Japanese, and native American tradition, the alternating hot and cold water stimulation to the body does wonders to boost the
