After a Christmas full of family gatherings, good food and lots of presents, it’s time for out with the old and in with the new! And speaking of old, I recently revisited the "Access Newspaper" website through our local Timberland Library. Looking into the past has always given insight to the future of Vader. If you are a Library card holding member, there’s tons of information you can access while home-bound during the blah days of winter. If you’re not a member and don’t wish to subscribe for a year, they do have rates that can accommodate a week, month, 6 months etc. Try it, there is a lot to offer.
January will bring with it some things of interest including a few changes for the seniors regarding Social Security, Medicare, and health insurance. Seniors please be aware of those changes and, if you need more information, call your local SSI office in Centralia with your questions in regards to SSI or Medicare.
The Vader Citizens League, along with some members of the Lions Club, participated in a two-day Rest Stop along the Northbound I-5 freeway. A huge THANKYOU to Donna Rogers, who orchestrated this event, and to the many who spent hours meeting, greeting and helping. I’m sure everyone is tired. The money collected will be used to help the community. When you see a Lion or VCL member, be sure to thank them. Giving up six hours at a time right after Christmas was a sacrifice.
There are some very good writers within the Vader boundaries, and you are needed! It’s important to share what’s happening through out our fair community, allowing others to know, participate, and support one another. Please call Stephen at the Town Crier office (360-785-3151) if you can help.
Here’s hoping 2013 will bring a year filled with peace, love and joy.
