Death Burial Drive
As of August 29th 2014, we have mailed out over 11,000 donation letters for our Death Burial Drive and received just under 900 in return. To those who have donated we thank you very much! This is one of the few benefits that our families get for all the times we have left in the middle of the night or durng Holiday meals. To learn more about the Death Burial Fund click here.
Back To School
With the unofficial last weekend of Summer fast approaching we would like to remind everyone that starting shortly after the Labor Day Holiday all of our town's children will be heading back to school. Drivers should be mindful of children waiting on the streets walking to school and waiting for the bus and all obey all flashing lights on buses.
