The Guthrie Towanda Memorial Hospital Auxiliary chooses a person each year who has been devoted to the mission of the Auxiliary, which is to support Guthrie Towanda Memorial Hospital in meeting the healthcare needs of the community.
The Auxiliary board voted unanimously to honor Terri Latocha as its Volunteer of the Year.
Guthrie now offers coliform and E coli bacteria water testing for residential properties.
Homeowners using cisterns, wells and springs for water should get their water tested regularly to be sure it’s safe to drink. Many pollutants to drinking water have no obvious symptoms and about 50 percent of private water systems fail at least one drinking water standard. Having water tested regularly is the best way to ensure it remains safe to consume.
