Congratulations to one of our customers, Lees East Rowan Café! They won the grand prize drawing at the Cheerios food show by General Mills – one of our vendors!

Not only did they win an all-expense paid trip to Charlotte for the May 29 NASCAR race, but their logo will be featured on the upper quarter panel of the No. 3 race car driven by Austin Dillon.

Every year, Lees East Rowan Café comes to Orrell’s Food Show to visit the different booths and learn new things that they use for the restaurant. They pride themselves on offering fresh, homemade food.

Orrell’s to Hold Flu Clinic October 10, 2014

whatstrueaboutfluFlu season is almost here, but NOW is the time to protect yourself, your family and your colleagues. Influenza is a serious illness that affects people of all ages. It’s particularly dangerous for those considered high-risk, but even healthy people get the flu. And it’s easily transmitted. The best way to keep from getting sick and infecting those you love? Get an annual flu shot.

For your convenience, we’re hosting an onsite flu shot clinic:

Date: October 10, 2014

Time: 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Place: Conference Room/Orrell’s Food Service


The flu shot: The truth

There are a lot of myths surrounding the flu shot that sometimes prevent people from getting one every year. Here are some truths you might not be aware of:


Early vaccination (before December) is best, since it takes time for the body to produce protective antibodies.1


The flu shot is 75 to 90 percent effective in preventing infection.1


You cannot GET the flu from the flu shot. It is made from purified,
noninfectious viruses.1


You need a flu shot every year, because a person’s antibodies diminish over time and the flu strain changes every year.1 Last year’s flu shot will NOT protect you against this year’s flu.


bcbslogoDon’t let the flu get you down. Get your seasonal flu shot at the onsite clinic. Go to www.bcbsnc.com/flu for more information.

Each clinic has been allocated a supply of vaccine. Shots will be given on a first-come, first-served basis until the supply is depleted. A parent or legal guardian must accompany children ages 4–17 and provide written authorization (children under 4 should see their physician). Nonmembers may receive a flu shot for $30 (cash or check only). Members in self-funded plans should check with their plan administrator to determine if the influenza vaccine and FluMist® are covered benefits and, if covered, where they can receive the benefit at the lowest cost. These flu shots will be administered by representatives of Maxim Health Systems, a division of Maxim Healthcare Services. In the event that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend that flu shots go to “priority groups” before the general public, Maxim Health Systems will give priority to those who fit the CDC’s high-risk criteria.
