Lyme forum: Members of Girl Scout Troop 952 of the CountrySide/Cascades area have been working diligently in recent months to spread the word on Lyme disease.

Nikki Dillistin, a senior at Potomac Falls High School and a Cascades resident, is continuing to move the information project forward by helping to organize the ALL (Alerting Loudoun to Lyme) forum on Feb. 5. Dillistin is also working to earn a Girl Scout Gold Award.

The Alerting Loudoun to Lyme forum features information booths and speakers including Dr. David Goodfriend, Director of the Loudoun County Health Department; Monte Skall, Executive Director of the National Capital Lyme and Tick-Borne Disease Association; Dr. Deanna Mitchell, D.V.M., the senior veterinarian at the Animal Medical Center of Cascades; Dr. Sarah Fletcher, a family physician, and Supervisor Andrea McGimsey of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. The forum takes place at Potomac Falls High School.
