Seniors enjoy golf in January

When the temperature reaches 60 degrees in January the solution is obvious � head to the golf course. Such a day came along on Tuesday, Jan. 7. The Bluffs course was open and golfers from the area got the word and came to play.

So did 30 grateful seniors. Management did a great job getting us on the back nine in various sized groups and we played � some without score cards in our haste � and we had fun. Winners were declared but this day everyone was a winner. We are looking for an encore some warm day in February.

Theta Omega sponsors pet photo contest

Members of the Theta Omega chapter of ESA International are sponsoring a "Beautiful Pet Photo Contest" the week of Jan. 27-Feb. 1. Proud owners are asked to enter their pet's photo in a "penny a vote" contest to determine the area's most beautiful pet. Proceeds from the contest will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN.

Registration for the contest will be held at Hy-Vee Food Store and Jones' Food Center on Monday, Jan. 27, from 5 to 7 p.m. Two photos of each contestant will be needed. Color photos are preferred, and photos should be no larger than 5" x 7". Winners will be determined by monetary vote. Each penny will equal one vote ("pennies" may be in the form of larger coins or bills; for example one dollar will equal 100 votes).

Photos will be on display and "ballot boxes" will be open in both stores on Wednesday, Jan. 29, Friday, Jan. 31 from 5 to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 1 from 9 to 11 a.m. At the time of registration, owners will also be provided with a "ballot box" in which to collect the votes of family and friends. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second, and third place winners.

Certificates of appreciation will be given to all participants. The top prize will be a $50 gift certificate to the store of their choice and a St. Jude t-shirt. Second prize will be a St. Jude t-shirt and a St. Jude tote bag. The third prize will be a St. Jude t-shirt.

Opened in 1962, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital was established to care for children stricken with catastrophic diseases and to conduct medical research on those diseases. Children are admitted to St. Jude Hospital without regard to race, creed or religion. Admission is based solely on a medical determination. There is no financial test for admission. Admission is limited only by the requirements that the disease be under study at the hospital, that the patient has received no prior treatment, and that a physician refers the child.

St. Jude's findings and protocols are freely shared with physicians and scientists throughout the world (including local communities such as Vermillion) extending the benefits of its work beyond its own patients to children and adults everywhere.

During its 30 year association with St. Jude Hospital, ESA International has raised well over $50,000,000 to help in the search for cures for catastrophic diseases of children including leukemia, pediatric AIDS, solid tumor cancers, neuroblastoma, and malnutrition so that, in the words of the hospital's founder, entertainer Danny Thomas, "no child will die in the dawn of life."
