“You don’t know what

hearing aids are about

until you go see Joe.”

Dear Friends,
About 6 years ago I attended a lunch and learn hosted by Joe at Mutter’s
Hearing Center, I was very impressed with Joe’s knowledge about the
entire hearing aid process so I immediately made an appointment for a ©MJ Vilardi
hearing test. I decided I needed to look into getting hearing aids when I
was out at lunch after playing golf one day, it began to be difficult to understand the rest of my party and I found myself saying “what?”
or “huh?” more and more often. I did not enjoy missing out on the conversation so I decided it was time for hearing aids. After my first
appointment with Joe I was instantly impressed, he has such a wonderful understanding of hearing loss and I liked Joe’s approach to
solving my problem. Although the solution was not cheap I can honestly say my hearing aids were one of the best purchases I’ve ever
made. Mutter’s Hearing Center offers the best service hands down. I can walk into the office anytime and get my hearing aids cleaned
at no charge, their service needs nothing to be desired. Having had a bad experience with hearing aids when my mother wore them, I
know how difficult it is to find good service for hearing aids. Joe has not only cared for my hearing aids but, also took the time to teach me
about my hearing aids and my hearing loss. You may have seen many ads in the paper advertising cheap hearing aids but, I can assure
you they don’t offer the same care and attention that Mutter’s offers. If I had to do it all over again I would pick Mutter’s in a heartbeat

“The fun part is anyone can join in.”

As in anyone.
“They come dressed as their favorite spe-

Groups and individuals are allowed to

No need to call ahead to join the proces-
sion either. “We are doing registration at the

Procession participants don’t even have
to register. They can find the starting place to
be in it, or jump in along the route. Howev-

Awards will be in six categories: youth,

“We have a special award for the most re-
cycled and repurposed,” Underwood said.
That award will go to an individual or
team that made one or more costumes out
of recycled materials.
Procession of the Species parades started
in 1995 in Olympia, Wash. Organizers want-
ed to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Earth
Day with a new twist, along with supporting
renewal of the Endangered Species Act. They
adopted three rules for the event.
Procession participants aren’t allowed to
use words – spoken or written – to tell peo-
ple about their chosen animals. The idea is
to teach others about them by acting out the
animals’ behaviors. No live animals are per-
mitted in processions, except for service an-
imals. Additionally, motorized vehicles and
music amplification are prohibited, except
for necessary mobility prosthetics such as
mechanized wheelchairs.
Oxbow’s procession will march to the beat
of a different drummer in one way. Well, it’ll
be accompanied by drummers. Folks are
urged to take drums to Earth Day to jump
into drumming circles that’ll be going on

AT KRAVIS CENTER PHOTOS: HOLLY PORCH

BY SAMANTHA BAITA | Staff Writer
[email protected]

1 “Kinky Boots,” Cyndi Lau-
per’s sequin-laden Tony
Award-winning Broadway smash
hit musical, ends its run this
weekend at the Kravis Center’s
Dreyfoos Hall in West Palm. With
music and lyrics by Lauper and a
book by Harvey Fierstein, “Kinky
Boots” is based on the 2005
British film of the same name,
which in turn was inspired by
true events. The musical, with
uber-high-energy singing and
hoofing and zillions of sequins
per “foot,” tells the story of Char-
lie Price, who inherited a shoe
factory from his father and forms
an unlikely partnership with cab-
aret performer and drag queen
Lola to produce a line of high-
heeled boots in order to save the
business. In the process, Charlie
and Lola discover that they are
not so different after all. Show
times: Friday, 8 p.m.; Saturday, 2
p.m. and 8 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m.
Tickets start at $27.
