Squad launches outreach

The Thurman Emergency Squad, a group of dedicated local volunteers, is launching a new way to reach out to local people who need help one way or another.

It's called the Golden Rule project.

Those local citizens who are alone in their home and feeling depressed, or have a small ache or pain, need a visit, or feel that they just need to talk with someone, shouldn't hesitate to call the Thurman Emergency Squad at 623-9014 or 623-2602.

Local residents who feel that someone they know needs some attention, particularly the elderly and folks with disability, are also asked to call. This is a goodwill project, not involving any fee - it involves just the good old Golden Rule.

The Thurman Emergency Squad meets at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday June 1 in the High St. squad building, and the public is invited to stop by. The agency is seeking volunteers, especially ambulance drivers and helpers to lift. Also, volunteers to help organize fundraisers are welcome.

Citizens to visit or check on the homebound or elderly, through the squad's new Golden Rule project, are also being sought. For information, call 623-9014 or 623-1601.

Seniors Club roster expands

Officials of the Sugar Loaf Seniors Club said this week they are pleased to announce that they have many new members, and the group now numbers 28. More new members are invited to join, they added. Call Norma at 623-9245 for information.

At the May 18 meeting, club members decided to visit the Golden Corral for lunch, and there were 21 members who enjoyed the outing. Many new trips will be coming up in the near future.
