Hospice of Lenawee plans training 1.7.09

Written by David Green.

Due to increasing growth, Hospice of Lenawee is seeking volunteers to assist in direct care, office support, bereavement and fund-raising Initiatives.

Direct care volunteers help hospice families with compassionate needs for a few hours each week. All volunteers provide support for the Hospice of Lenawee team which assists terminally ill individuals and their families whether working in the office or outside of the office.

 Hospice training is scheduled Fridays and Saturdays on Feb. 6, 7, 20 and 21 and March 6 and 7. Friday sessions will run from 6:15-9:15 p.m. and Saturday sessions from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hospice of Lenawee Offices, 415 Mill Rd., Suite 4, in Adrian. There is no charge to receive training.

 All sessions must be attended to complete the training. The sessions will include information on the many ways in which someone can donate their time and skills.

 For more information, call Hospice of Lenawee at 517/263-2323 weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • Accident
    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
