Lionel Leblanc wanted to donate some money to his fellow veterans, specifically veterans of the Vietnam War, but wasn’t sure where to invest. He was looking for an investment that would be meaningful and helpful to veterans. He found the answer to his quest in the form of some comfortable and therapeutic chairs, which he bought for the New Hampshire Veterans Home in Tilton. Leblanc served for 37 years in the U. S. Air Force’s 381st Bomb Group, having been stationed — among other places — on Okinawa, China and the Philippines during World War II. He is well known to many veterans in the state, as he has been a member... Leblanc, a Manchester resident who entered the service at age 18 after graduating high school in 1943, was looking to donate money to the cause of combat veterans. He had given to veterans’ causes in the past, and even “adopted” six platoons through the Adopt-a-Platoon program. He was considering spending money on a cause for veterans at the New Hampshire Veterans Cemetery, but then decided to call the New Hampshire Veterans Home. “I asked (Peggy LaBrecque, the home’s commandant) what they needed most at the home,” Leblanc said. “That’s when I found out about the chairs. He learned that the home needed therapeutic chairs suited to older people. Specifically, he was told that a purchase of several Thera-Glide Safety Gliders would be most useful. He bought five of the chairs — at a cost of $800 each — for the home. He made the donation in honor of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association, specifically dedicating them to Vietnam veterans. “I thought it was time to give (Vietnam veterans) credit,” Leblanc said. “So many were lost in that war. We need to remember them. The chairs are for “gliding and rocking,” according to the manufacturer, Optima Products, and can be an adjunct to nursing home therapy programs. According to the company, clinical studies show that regular use of a rocking chair by. Source: www.unionleader.com
In fact, ease of cleaning is so important to parents that Consumer Reports recently added it as part of its high-chair ratings. Testers found some of the high chairs difficult to clean. The Graco Slim Snacker has lots of fabric flaps where food can collect, and it doesn’t have a tray insert, which is basically a second tray cover that fits on top. It’s nice to have so that you can just take it off to wash at the sink rather than the whole tray. The Mia Moda Alto has a tray insert but it doesn’t fully cover the main tray, so you’ll need to wash food off the insert and the base tray underneath. A better choice is the Fisher-Price EZ Clean. At $85 it’s a Consumer Reports Best Buy. The tray insert covers the entire tray. Testers also found the straps simple to wipe off, and the seat cover is machine washable. Another feature that can add value is a high chair that can grow with your child. The Joovy HiLo chair rotates to become a booster chair. And it’s easy to clean because it’s made of molded plastic. But it’s expensive at $400, and testers found the harness difficult to use. Consumer Reports found one flexible high chair to recommend. It’s the Ingenuity Trio 3-in-1 Deluxe. The seat comes off and can be used as a booster seat, and then the base can be used as a toddler chair. The whole thing is easy to clean and at $90, it’s also a Consumer Reports Best Buy. Consumer Reports stresses that no matter which high chair you buy, your child should be fully buckled into the harness system every single time you use the chair. Source: www.kwch.com
