Salem UCC Vacation Bible School
Salem United Church of Christ in Alhambra will have vacation Bible school on June 5-9 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. each day. The VBS is for children 3 years old to fifth grade. Those in sixth grade to high school are invited to join the crew. This year’s theme is “Cave Quest.” It will show kids to follow Jesus through dark times with memorable Bible learning activities. They will be reminded how much Jesus loves them. This will include songs, teamwork games, yummy treats to make and eat, science “stuff.” Parents are asked to send children in play clothes, as some of the projects may get messy.
Register now, forms are available outside the church office, 1117 W North St. in Alhambra. Phone 488-3215. Sign up early, so plenty of supplies can be purchased. Children of every faith are invited to participate.
Big Trash Pick-up
A Dumpster will be placed behind the Jaycees Hall for any items (no electronics) to be thrown away. Curbside pick-up of large items, furniture, toys, bikes, etc. (no tires, TVs, computers or monitors) will be on May 11.
Dog vaccinations will be given at the fire house on Saturday, June 11 from noon to 1 p.m.
In the event of an emergency, it is imperative that ambulance and fire fighters are able to find the residents in need. Many houses have the numbers displayed on the front of their houses but they are hidden by vehicles in the driveway, or by grown trees or maybe just faded to the point where they can no longer be easily read.
The next time you drive up to your residence, look to see if your house numbers can easily be read from the street without an emergency responder having to drive past and then back up.
Numbers should be large enough to be read from the street. Reflective numbers will show up better at night with a light shining on them. Rural numbers will be more effective if on both sides of the post. Ambulance services may come from one direction and Fire services from the opposite direction so the numbers need to be seen from both directions.
It is important to put porch lights on to help aid emergency vehicles. Every second counts when a life or property are in danger.
