October is an important month in the chiropractic world, as it is Spinal Health Month! World Spine Day is officially celebrated on October 16th, but we like to celebrate for the entirety of the month. Other exciting celebrations include Carleigh’s birthday on October 18th.
If your schedule and appointment times need to change, please remember to call our office early to reschedule your appointment. Please do not reply to our appointment reminder emails, as we do not receive those responses. Always remember to walk around to the front of the plexiglass barrier to rebook your appointment.
Thanks for your monetary help for “Hike, Bike and Bark for Hospice”. That fundraiser for Ed’s House raised $61,000, and we were able to make a good contribution, with our participation and your donations. Thank you! We participated in the “Walk a Mile in her Shoes” to support the Cornerstone Family Violence Prevention Centre, although virtually as we had a few conflicting schedules. We did a group walk together on Tuesday, September 27th… Myranda brought in a few pairs of her red heels for us to test out (all size 6!!!) so we squished our toes in to take a few steps and a few photos. Thank you again to our amazing community for your donations.
On October 15th, the whole office staff and doctors will be helping to plant 100 Trees with local Rotarians as they celebrate 100 years of Rotary in Cobourg. We will not be looking for donations for this project. Rotary is a great service organization with whom both Drs. Hubbel and Johnston are very involved.
Office News: Julie has been attending funerals and weddings, Carleigh has stressed over her son starting school, Louise has a teenage son… (enough said), Myranda keeps busy with family and her family business as well as full time with our office. Karen leads her usual busy life, so no more about that! Carolyn is with us part time and we are happy to have her here.
Two of our doctors recently had a procedure review by the College of Chiropractors of Ontario. This is designed to ensure everything possible is being done to provide the best and safest chiropractic care for every patient. All our procedures are in order and with only a couple of suggestions will make our records even better. One thing is a consent form to update with your signature, mostly for Dr Hubbel’s long-time patients. Watch for it!
Dr Leguard was off to the maritimes for a weekend visit with some friends and this necessitated her being out of the office for a long weekend. Dr Johnston never knows what to do with her spare time: after her husband and two girls at home, office almost every day, being a Rotary board member, helping with the local baseball organization, all while participating in several local fund-raising activities with the office staff. Dr Hubbel still shows up Tuesdays and Thursdays to care for many patients who have been with us for many years, and fills the remainder of his time with home and family.
