Lions donate to RPES

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. The Atmore Lions Club recently donated much needed diabetic supplies to Rachel Patterson Elementary School. The supplies will be used to provide immediate care to diabetic students when their blood sugar becomes unbalanced. Each box contained the following: juice boxes, tube icing, candy, cheese crackers, and other appropriate care items. Shown at the presentation are, from left, Ashley Browning, RPES School nurse; Stephanie Alaniz, district lead nurse; Casey McKinnon, Escambia County High School nurse; Bub Gideons and Joyce Petty, Lions Club members; and Teresa Crayton, RPES guidance counselor.
