Shawnee Indian Mission will be holding its Holiday Open House Dec. 3. The Shawnee Indian Mission, 3403 W. 53rd St., will host its annual Holiday Open House at the Mission’s east building Saturday December 3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The free event includes music from local musicians, cookies and cider, and children’s arts and crafts courtesy of the Johnson County Young Matrons. The Mission’s annual tree and wreath sale begins November 25th and will be open during the event. All proceeds support the Shawnee Indian Mission Foundation and Boy Scout Troop 192.

Shawnee Mission Medical Center is honored for supporting employee breastfeeding. The Shawnee Mission Medical Center has received a Gold Level Employer Support for Nursing Mothers Award from the Mother & Child Health Coalition and the Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition. The award recognizes businesses that provide support for breastfeeding. Among the services the hospital provides to employees is a private, secure area—not a bathroom—where mothers can comfortably pump or breastfeed, as well as refrigerator storage, a sink and a breast pump.

Roeland Park police offer advice for the holidays. Chief John Morris of the Roeland Park Police Department is offering a few tips for the holiday season. People leaving on vacation should let officers know so when they’re away so they can check on your home. Roeland Park residents can fill out the “house watch” form online under the police link or call us at 677-3363 and ask for a form to be filled out for you. Be sure to stop your mail and papers, notify a neighbor, keep a light on, and secure all your valuable items in a safe place. If you plan on going out shopping, lock your car and do not leave any items in plain view as an easy target for criminals.
