Grief camp succeeds

The staff of Community Hospice Care wishes to extend our deepest appreciation to those who donated and gave their time to help make the four-day “2014 Exploring Life’s Changes” kids’ grief camp a success. We especially thank Baskets & Balloons by Deborah and the Altrusa organization for the generosity, as well as that of the hospice volunteers.

The staffs of the YMCA and the Franciscan Earth Literacy Center provided us with the use of their facilities for a day and their assistance.

Camp participants enjoyed and benefited from the sharing of experiences, stories, journal workshops, crafts, swimming, yoga, games and music, contact with animals and nature, a balloon release and individual interaction with group leaders.

Programs such as this would not be possible without the abundant support of our community.

Thank you to all,

Alice Frazier-Snook, LSW, bereavement coordinator

Autumnwood aided

The residents, patients, staff and guests of Volunteers of America Autumnwood Care Center would like to thank the following businesses which came to our rescue June 25-26 when a water main break on Perry Street resulted in an unexpected loss of water.

Clinton Township Volunteer Fire Department and Culligan of Tiffin provided emergency water for us. McDonald’s of Tiffin and Walmart provided much-needed ice.

Your assistance was truly amazing. We appreciate the dependable service you provide to our community. Thanks again!
