Around South Hagerstown

May 19, 2008|By STACI CLIPP / 240-291-0916


Well, there are about 12 days of school left.

As I write this column this week, my family and I are at the one-year mark of my sister's death. It's hard to believe it has been a year already, and though at times things seems like they are a little back to normal, the reality of it is it is still there.

Also, it has dawned on me that I am getting old! I now have two children who are older than 21 and two teenagers! I just want to know - where exactly does the time go?

Way to go, Sherry

Betty Myers would like to congratulate her daughter Sherry for getting her diploma and let her know that she is very proud of her. Also, a very happy 16th birthday to her grandson on May 31.

Faith in Action training is today

Faith In Action training for new volunteers will be conducted today at 6 p.m. at the REACH Center, at 140 W. Franklin St., suite 300.

This is a one-time, mandatory training session for new or prospective Faith in Action volunteers.

For those who have attended a Faith in Action training session since January 2007, they need not attend this training session.

The agency is requesting that anyone wishing to attend the training session RSVP no later than noon today via e-mail at or phone call.

If you are interested in becoming a Faith in Action volunteer but the Monday evening training sessions are not convenient for you, please e-mail or call with some optional days and times that are convenient. A special one-on-one training session can be scheduled for your convenience.

For clarification purposes, if you have completed the registration and training to volunteer in the Cold Weather Shelter, this does not qualify you for the Faith in Action program.

A separate registration form complete with three personal references for a background check, and the Faith in Action training session, is required for all Faith in Action volunteers prior to their assignment as a volunteer.

For more information about the training, call 301-733-2371, ext. 100.
