Page 10 - Wednesday, October 22, 1980 American Legion Auxiliary American Legion William Russell Ledford By DENA GAMBETTA William Russell Ledford Unit 293, American Legion Auxiliary held their regular monthly meeting at the Veterans Memorial Building last Wednesday, with Theresa Tollini, Junior Past President, conducting the meeting due to the illness of our president Lee Silver. Get well fast, Lee. Eleanore Phillips and Alice Cordtz were our guests and El•andre was our guest speaker, bringing the auxiliary an up-date of the Hot Line. (Se had come before the auxiliary several months ago to ex- plain the Hot Line.) The Hot Line actually started on July 1, 1960, and at present we have 26 volunteers (more are needed however, so that more hours can be covered). Originally, the Hot Line was to be manned by volunteers from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., but through the short time the Hot Line has been in operation we find that day-time hours are needed as well as night-time hours. The volunteers have a monthly workshop and at times have special workshops on Saturdays. There are 35 referral agencies that are available in the county; the Hot Line provides long and short- term counseling and also have a shelter overnight provided for in Healdsburg, and one in Cloverdale provided through Barbara Cleary. Pam Barbieri is the coordinator, she is a part- time employee, and is paid by the hour, as she has a degree in master counseling and other qualifications pertinent to the coor- dinating and counseling in the Hot Line. In August there were 27 calls and in September there were 28 calls with callers of all ages. ages. In Healdshurg they are starting a Peer Counseling program, and when they called a meeting for the training session, they planned for 25 students to show up, and over 200 showed up. So you can see the importance of this program. (By the way, the auxiliary has placed Peer Counseling materials in our local high school.) The most important issue in being a volunteer on the Hot Line is that one must keep all things in confidence and must maintain trust. Pare Barbieri, gets paid, the free telephoning by those using the Hot Line must be paid (around $100 a month), stationary and stamps, and some travel expense. Mrs. Phillips noted that the Espicopal Church was planning to put on a Mexican Dinner on November 15 and all proceeds will go toward the Hot Line, and all funds of profit, will be matched. She also noted that when making a contribution to the United Way, you can designate which services you want your funds to go Unit 293 to. The auxiliary thanks the two ladies for coming to our group and clarifying some questions asked as to why donations are needed. The auxiliary has 2 volunteers in the Hot Line, who give two days a month to be on call for the Hot Line calls. Maxine Bluhm, who is a volunteer, presented Mrs. Phillips with a check in the amount of $,50 as a con- tribution toward helping maintain the Hot Line, through our Children and Youth program and Community Service program. Mr. Gabrielle from the Legion then came into the women's meeting asking for volunteers for the Legion- Auxiliary coral group that he is planning to institute. He said that anyone can sing, and that a coral group needs both men and women. The group can then per- form for the community, for our own functions and county functions. Several women have signed up and we hope that this un- dertaking will become a reality real soon. We of the auxiliary are proud to be able to present Henrietta Ruppert our musician as the pian O plays for the coral group. We are really looking forward to hearing this group in action. Henrietta had played for the senior citizens' 50th wedding celebrations just that af- ternoon. She plays for Manzanita Manor and for Kings Valley, she is with the Senior Citizens Band, and will play at the drop of a hat. She is district musician, tOO. The auxiliary voted to send $100 to the Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation Christmas Gift Shop. If you would like to donate any amount or send a personal gift (valued at $5), please send to Theresa Tollini, before November 1. This is a most important program, for the hospitalized veteran for the holiday season. The budget was read and approved and passed. We now have the largest budget in the history of our auxiliary, with most of the funds remaining in our own community, helping wherever needed. The auxiliary is asking any member who does not attend the meetings and perhaps does not know what is going on, that there are several members, who are planning to enroll in the National American Legion Auxiliary Leadership course, at a cost of $2 per person. This is a correspondence course and right after the holidays we will meet together to study the workings of the auxiliary, and if you would like to enroll, please contact Elsie Karr, and she will sign you up, as she is the membership chairman and has a list of all the mem- bers! William Russell Ledford Post 293 By FRANKLENA Tonight is the night the big dough will be awarded to the lucky winner or winners. This is our last Bingo night of the year due to the upcoming holidays. The blackout bingo pot will be worth $200, which is probably the largest pot ever in Cloverdale's history. And it should be noted in the "history books" for posterity that it will have been awarded by the William Russell Ledford Post 293 American Legion, Cloverdale's oldest, largest and most active veteran's organization. On November 9, the post will offer a vancake and eggs breakfast, with Commander Jack Durham in charge of the affair. Buy your tickets from any Legionnaire, $3 for adults and $1.50 for children (children's tickets at the door). Breakfast will be served from 7 a.m. to II p.m. Beginning at 3 p.m. the same day the post will offer a Veterans Day program featuring Bruce Sievers who is destined te become the Nation's Poet Laureate. This program will be held at the Citrus Fair. All students will be admitted free of charge, adults $2. Tickets for this program also will be available from any active Legionnaire. On December 14, Santa Claus will be in Cloverdale to see all of his little 9 year old and younger boys and girls. According to the last message from the North Pole, Santa will be bringing a sleigh full of gifts, one for each of his little friends. More on this as the time gets closer. Any veteran who thinks he or she is eligible to join the American Legion is invited to attend our next meeting, Wednesday, November 12.

Adults will be free, and children will be charged $1. • • • • O O O O O O O O O O 0 O 0 O O This is to help defray the cost of the rental of the film, and includes popcorn. From press releases, this is one of the funniest Disney films ever made. The cast in- cludes Cloris Leachman and Karen Valentine, and is a story of a new preacher in town who joins six ladies in their attempt to run the gangsters out of • town. -a.r chases in a Rolls Royce, Lincoln Continental, and "Clunkers" are reported to be hilarious. Hopefully, there will be a good crowd to enjoy it. Remember the time and place! Everyone in Cloverdale is invited. The preliminary plans were made for a gala Thanksgiving and Christ- mas. More about that when Jan returns from her vacation next week. The road work is progressing nicely, so there is no longer a danger o! breaking springs as you drive down to the hospital.
