Shiawassee County is one of only a few fortunate counties that have a Faith-in-Action Respite program available to residents. Volunteers help adults with persistent health needs and their family caregivers, providing friendly visits, and respite to the family caregivers. Elderly are able to remain living safely in their own home knowing that Respite Volunteers of Shiawassee will check in on the person and provide friendly visits. The volunteers usually live in the same community and share the same interests as the person they are visiting. Volunteers only need to attend one training session. The next Respite Volunteer Training is on Aug. 23 at St. Paul Catholic Church in the Father Whelan Room in Owosso from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. To register for the training, please contact the Respite Volunteers of Shiawassee office at (989) 725- 1127.

For more information about our services, please see our website, www.respitevolunteers.org and for many photos of the golf scramble by photographer Peggy Garikes, please see our Facebook page.

Dear Editor,

Another successful hunter safety class was completed on Aug. 19 with 38 students graduating. The average test score for the 38 tests was 97.05 percent.

I wish to congratulate Madeline Popsilek for being selected as the top student of the St. Charles Wolverine Sportsman Club hunter safety class.
