We have asked our foster parents to turn in to us one gift idea (between $35.00 and $50.00) that each of their foster children would like. We have these gift ideas available at our office to be picked up and purchased. We are asking that you return the wrapped gifts by December 3rd.
The children have wished for toys, bicycles, games, electronics, and gift certificates.
Anything you can do to help would be appreciated! We accept cash donations from those who are unable to purchase a present. Come by our office at 109 Carroll Street or call Dan at 598-3611 for more information.
November 3, 2018 - It's fall back time... Sunday, November 4th at 2am, daylight savings time ends and clocks roll backward 1 hour.
At the beginning or end of daylight savings time is a good time to do a routine check of items in your house. Test items such as smoke detectors and install new batteries to help keep your family and home safe. Check your hot water heaters and other areas which aren't seen regularly.
Clean out dryer vent hoses which can become clogged with lint and cause dryers to not perform as well. Lint is highly combustible and decreased airflow can cause overheating of the exhaust ducting resulting in a fire. After inspecting and cleaning out the dryer vent ducting, check to make sure when you push the dryer back in place that the duct doesn't have a bend causing poor air flow.
Lastly, annual checkups for pets is great too!
