Fund 00Drive Being Plann d For R ichland H omes P roiect By JACKIE ANDERSON Herald Publisher "Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, The last of life, for which the first was made."-- Browning. Traditionally, November and December are the months when good will and extra considera- tion for our fellowman prevail. With this in mind, a drive to raise $70,000 for an addition to Richland Homes will begin here on Dec. 6. The new addition to Richiand Homes, presently under con- structiovb wilt include added room facilities, a day room an a chapel. The campaigntoraise the necessary funds tocomplete the project will begin with a Monday night kick-off meeting for captains of the drive. Cap- tains will receive their pledge cards and the drive will include a door - to - door fund raising campaign in Sidney. Chairman of the Richland Homes Fund Drive is Glade Yoder. Co-chairmen are Iug Svaare and Jay Lalonde. The Publicity Committee for the campaign is comprised of Dale Wilson, Harold Mercer and Jackie Anderson. Richland Homes Administra- tor, Phil Schumacher, said there are presently 64 resi- dents living at the home. The average age of the Richiand Home residents is 80 years. Schumacher said about two- thirds of the elderly residing at the home are ambulator-y and the rest are bed ridden. "We have about 30 applicants waiting to enter the home. This is a successful operation and residency here is in high de- mand. We always have a wait- lug list," Schumacher said. Richland Homes residents are comfortable and well cared fOr. Rooms are sunny and cheer- ful. The present day room is not adequate for the mav indi- viduals who use it. Interests of the elderly at Richland Homes vary. Some enjoy handwork, others still like to read and still others prefer watching the colored television or justquiet- ly visiting. An added day room will aLlow the residents to en- Injury May Result joy their leisure time more ful- ly. Richiand Homes does not have a chapel. The necessity of this facility seems obvious. Added rooms are also neces- sary as the ever present wait- ing list for entrance tothe home will testify. Schumacher pointed out that the added rooming facilities will allow residents who still enjoy good health and independence the opportunity of privacy to a greater degree than is nowpos- sible. Present rooming facilities at the home make private rooming somewhat difficult since resi- dents are not necessarily segre- gated with the exception of the bedridden occupants. The $70,000 fund raising drive will begin Dec. 6 andcon- clude Dec. 18. Duringthattime, it is hoped most of the funds for the Richland Homes addition can be raised. As you plan your family Christmas this year, give sonm thought to the elderly. The cost of one Christmaspresentdonat- ed to the Richiand Homes cant. paign would surely be NgA- ated hy those who cannot help raise the funds necessary to make their own lives happier. Years wrinkle the skin but selfishness wrinkles the soul. Consider the last of life and be generous when the Richlmld Home fund raisers call upon you.

This seating provides for about 500 specta- tors and it was suggested the potential may exist for a col- lapse with injury to a sizable number of people. A new grandstand was sug- gested. The possihility of using the fairground for a football field was also suggested which would utilize the existing new grandstand and the added seat- ing planned at the fairgrounds Exchange Of Ideas Begins With Council This past Monday evening, 28 organizational presidents and representatives from through- out Richland COuntY met at the Lalonde Hotel Ballroom and formed the Richland Cetmty Co- ordinating Council.
