Page i4 SHELTON--MASON COUNTY JOURNAL  Published in "Ch'istmastown, U.S.A.", Shelton. Washington Thursday, Januar: Allyn Ambulance Fund Donations Increased Over Previous Years this was not fair for the same people to have to continue to sup- port this by themselves so we set up a system of billing, to be able to meet the obligations pledged. To give you the people of this area prompt ambulance service by a fully trained crew. You are in- deed fortunate for there are still communities that have no service at all and are in the same pota- tion as we were prior to 1955. Your donations are going to- ward a worthy cause land are de- ductible). This is your sereice use it wisely. The ambulance crew stands ready to assist you upon request, and whether it is a trans- portation problem or an emerg- ency we will be of any service that we possibly can. The rea- son we take our time in planning transportation of a non-emergency nature is to be able to make ar- rangements to have your area covered by ambulance service while we are gone. This is pos- sible but we have to arrange for it. Meetings are held on the sec- ond Monday of each month for the discussion mid paying of bills of ambulance and fire department business. If you have any ques- tions regarding any phase of this volunteer service, or if you would Just like to find out what your firemen and first aiders are do- ing; the meeting starts at 8 p.m. at the Fire Hall and lasts about 11/2 hours. Everyone is welcome and invited. FOR CLARIFICATION: Your ambulance dues for membership (donations} are due as of January 1 and extend for the full year to December 31, 1963. So a word to the wise would be to pay your dues early and get the coverage for the full year. A receipt will be sent you upon request, and if you have insurance coverage a bill will be sent to them. Members who have insurance may request this bill for the Insurance Company as a means of revenue. Remember your first aid crew are all volunteers: men with jobs, women with children. Take this into consideration when you have to wait for a few minutes for the ambulance to arrive. Men some- times have to drop whatever they are doing, wherever they are, to take these calls and this takes a little time to get to your home. In time of emergency a minute or two seems like hours, so give your volunteers a break before condemning them. and just think and be thankful you have the men :'nd women who are willing to p'ovide you this service. The smwice is here for you and these By Judy Van Osten ALLYN A vote of thanks is extended to all persons who have donated toward the purchase, maintenance, and upkeep of am- bulance and fire department this past year. Donations were still lower than anticipated but were up considerably from the previous year. -.: Somerning a lot of people for- get isthe fact that this is your ambulance, bought by you and mi{ecFby volunteers for which we are always twing to recruit into service. This a very worth- while project due to the fact that a commercial ambulance (if you need one) would cost very high (almost three times our rate) and you would have to wait from 30 minutes to one hour or more. If a person needs attention this time is very important. A brief history of your ambu- lance is the fact that years ago upon occasion, an ambulance was needed ,and it would take from one hour 45 minutes to 2t/ hours to get one here from town, Your firemen ' decided the people of this area were entitled to better ser- vice than this so they purchased a 1936 Packard and pressed it into service; The Packard being old 3nd tired, they then purchased a 1942 Oldsmobile ambulance and were very proud. "They had ac- complished all this on their own through funds raised represent- ing a lot of hard work and ask- ing nothing of the people of the area, bt providing good service fro" those who needed it. The time came when they felt that the 1942 Olds was no longer dependable enough for trips of an emergency nature so they decided- ed to purchase a new model for the am'bulance service. To do this we had to pledge future donations in the form of a contract to ob- tain this ambulance for you. This kq why your donations are so important. There is another pa.yment in October of this year (needleis to say if we can pay it off early we can save interest}. After this your donations will go for maintenance, upkeep, and to start a fund for replacing our present ambulance when it is old enougl to retire. THE AMBULANCE committee does not like to have to send bills to the people of our community. But when donations cease to come in, we still have obligations to meet, so we nmst bill to meet these obligations. However, if you donate $5 per family we can ac- complish all maintenance, upkeep, pay the payments, and have a re- smvce fund for future equipment.
