To the editor:
As members of American Federation of State, County
and Municipal Employees Council 31, Local 1277, we want to thank the
community for their support during our fall fundraiser for bath aide
services for low-income senior citizens.
A check will be presented to the Logan County Health Department
for the "Personal Care Service Program." Funding generated will
allow certified nurse's aides to provide bath services to those who
need, but cannot afford, the necessity. Community donations continue
to be accepted throughout the year for this program.

Thanks to Charlie, Bill and staff at the Lincoln IGA for their
helpfulness at the sandwich sale and bake sale. Thanks to the
Lincoln Junior Woman's Club for partnering with the union by
providing baked goods as well as additional funding. Thanks to
Thrivent Financial for Lutherans for providing generous incentive
funding and to Thrivent volunteers for their donations of time and
baked goods. Thanks to local churches for their monetary gifts.
Lastly, thanks to the union and nonunion members of the Logan
County Health Department who volunteered their time and energy on a
Saturday to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve.
Susie Billington and Mary Anderson
