Ruritan imageYork Ruritan Club - January 2015 Speaker ... Grace Rutledge, Assistant Director of Development, Lackey Free Clinic, on Old Williamsburg Road, spoke at the regular York Ruritan Club meeting on Monday evening, January 19th. She has been part of the clinic for one year but has known the cofounders, Dr. Jim Shaw and his wife, Cooka, since 1996. Her presentation gave the club a "virtual tour" of the facilities along with clear understanding of the given Christ-based ministry to help those without health insurance and meet income guidelines. The clinic is dependent on donations and has little if any government assistance. In 2014, York Ruritan Club donated $600 to Lackey Free Clinic, and will do so again in 2015.

How To Keep Up With Your New Year's Resolutions ... Every January 1st as I stroll through my neighborhood on my daily constitutional (that's a fancy word for walk, but it makes me seem British and witty) I notice a whole new crop of joggers on their new missions to lose weight "and be all that they can be". And every year come Groundhog Day on February 2nd and Valentine's Day on February 14th I notice those joggers are long gone. The same dozen or so "regulars" that walk, cycle, or jog are still out there as they have been for many years, but the new people are gone. So what happened? Some people say that Americans are lazy or weak-minded or not committed to change. I don't agree with that at all. I think most Americans are hardworking, strong-willed, and will commit to something they believe in. (See Page 7, Jan 22, 2015 Edition) (Have a Comment?)
