Delavan Ambulance hosts reception for Dr. Morris' retirement

Many Delavan townspeople came to an open house May 18 at the Delavan Ambulance building to share their gratitude and give best wishes to Dr. Morton "Bud" Morris, who recently retired from medical practice after 21 years of serving the Delavan area. The reception commemorated his efforts in the founding of Delavan Ambulance.

Dr. Morris had noted a need for emergency care and transportation in the area, and in 1976 he started the ball rolling by setting up an advisory board and then teaching the EMT classes.

Delavan Ambulance Service now has two fully equipped ambulances and an all-volunteer squad of approximately 20 EMTs.

As a matter of interest, Dr. Morris' youngest child, Carolyn, is currently an EMT on the squad while attending a local college.

Pictured, left to right, are Sean Bluhm, Delavan Ambulance chief; Dr. Morris; Shirley Morris; and David Wildenradt, president of the Delavan Ambulance board of directors. Dr. Morris was presented with a personalized motorcycle jacket as a retirement gift.
