The Adams County Record Being Prepared , BY LINDEN DAVIS The 11 th annual S.A.V.E.S. the Day fundraiser and din- ner will be on June 9, 2012 in New Meadows. S.A.V.E.S. the Day has supported the Meadows Valley volunteer fire and ambulance services by supplementing their equipment and train- ing needs. Honor these local heroes by par- ticipating in this day's events. The day begins with the ever-popular PUTT for Life event and continues through the S.A.V.E.S.,the Day signature Bar-B-Q din- ner. Over the past 10 years, S.A.V.E.S. the Day-has provided the Meadows Valley EMS services with almost $200,000 in support. Both the fire and ambulance ser- vices are staffed by vol- unteers, your friends and neighbors, who drop what they are doing and rush to help all community mem- bers. The Ambulance Service has 20 volun- teers, and in 2011, they responded to over 100 patient contacts. The Fire Department has eight regular volunteers, although Fire Chief Jeff Luff believes a roster of 20 fire fighters would be more desirable. The Fire Department responded to around 20 calls last year. Sign up your 2-person putting teams at Dorsey Warr Park anytime after 1:00 p.m. Corby Dickey, PUTT for Life commit- tee chair and S.A.V.E.S. the Day board member, believes there will be 18 holes, like last year. Local businesses spon- sor each hole, creat- ing a design for a fun and challenging hole. Teams can compete in several levels such as "professional" and "ama- teur" where the profes- sional level refers to people who regularly play golf, and the ama- teur level refers to non golfers. The greens are designed to allow both "professionals" and "amateurs" to compete for prize money. There will be 1 s', 2 nd and 3 rd place awards that will be presented at the Bar- B-Q dinner. Turn your scorecard in at the 18th hole at the EMS build- by 5:30, and you can relax to music and peruse the raffle and live auction items. Dinner begins with the 6:00 invocation and pledge of allegiance. Dinner fare consists of the famous slow-cooked pork and beef Bar-B-Q from fire chief Jeff Luff's Hawg Wild. The raf- fle will go on through- out the dinner, and the live auction will begin as dinner concludes. Whether you are a busi- ness who can donate merchandise or services, or community members who have useful items to donate, the S.A.V.E.S. the Day committee real- ly needs your support and involvement.
