Reader’s Corner 4/4/07

Box Tops for Education: Pat Wolfe has been collecting “Box Tops for Education” that appear on a lot of packaged food. She used to have someone to give them to, but doesn’t any longer. Are there any parents or teachers who could use these? (I think you can redeem them for school supplies.) Anyway, Pat will deliver if you have a need. Contact me and I’ll get you together.

Want to be a docent on Independence Trail? The South Yuba Independence Trail was the first wheelchair accessible trail in the country. Again this year, it was voted “The Best Hiking Trail” by The Union readers. Margaret Platt let me know that Spring Docent and Volunteer Training will be from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. every Monday starting next week through April 30. Sessions will feature speakers on flora and fauna of the trail, forest habitats, the Maidu people and interpretive skills. Call Linda Chaplin at 273-6881 regarding enrollment and class sites. All volunteers are welcome, especially people willing to take school children on tours.

Celebrating the Heart of Our Community: Nine United Way partner agencies will gather at noon today to celebrate National Volunteer Appreciation Month. The luncheon will honor more than 140 volunteers at Miners Foundry.


Dixie Redfearn can be reached at 477-4238 or by e-mail at, or by fax at 477-4292.
