     There are just a few days left of the Salvation Army “Beat The Heat Program”, and those fans are really needed this week. Some of our neighbors are without air conditioning, and they need boxed fans or rotating fans. And bottled water would be appreciated too. Drop off your donation at 822 McCallie Avenue, during regular business hours. Their “Beat The Heat Program” ends on August 31st. 

     The next “RAM Health Care Clinic” will be at Camp Jordan Arena on September 9th and 10th. These are the “Remote Area Medical” Clinics that are absolutely free for medical, and dental, and vision services. No I.D. will be required this time, and these clinics are open to anyone who cannot afford these services.  That’s September 9th and 10th at Camp Jordan Arena. The lines begin to form early, so plan to bring a chair or blanket while you’re waiting in line overnight.
