Cedar Mountain News for Thursday 6-25-21
CEDAR MOUNTAIN FIRE RESCUE
Following the Annual Meeting last Thursday, firefighters gathered for a demonstration of extrication equipment. A donated car was a completely dismantled pile of rubble when the demonstration was over. The fire department's equipment is severely outdated and parts are no longer available. Broken parts have to be fabricated. The firefighters were amazed at how much more efficient and easier to use these tools were. Injured persons could be extricated much faster with this modern equipment and make it possible to save more lives.
The blood drive was a success. 28 donations were made. Thanks to all who donated. If you missed this blood drive please contact the Red Cross for an upcoming drive. There is a critical blood supply shortage nationwide. According to the Red Cross a single-car accident victim can require up to 100 units of blood. An article in Reader’s Digest described a victim who required 78 units of blood before she was stable. You could make the difference between life and death for someone. With this in mind please contact the Red Cross to make an appointment at 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). You may also register online at https://www.redcrossblood.org/
FAITH MEMORIAL CHAPEL
From Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day you are invited to worship at an old rock & timber chapel just 3/10 mile on Stone’s Lake Road (across from the Cedar Mountain Fire Department). Each week there is a different denomination behind the pulpit. An open-sided building, it allows views to a lush garden surrounding, while bird’s songs filter in. It’s an amazing experience!

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Young
Try as I might I attempted to include a couple of photos from the fire department extrication demo but was unsuccessful. I’ll try again next week. Off to get my wedding dress shortened Wednesday. It’s either that or stand on a stool. September 18th is inching its way ever closer.
