4 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE - Thursday, December 4, 2003 VOLUME 138 Thanksgiving at C.W. Shipley The kindergarten class of Mrs. Heather Williams celebrated Thanksgiving with a play on No- vember 25. The play involved a description of the first Thanksgiving and the meaning of the day. Complete with a kindergartner dressed as a turkey and being chased by a girl dressed in a chef's hat and wielding a large paper spoon, the play included the following Pilgrims: Hannah Clem, Gabby Fraley, Emily Gross, Collin L.angevin, Tucker Menefee, Alexis Openshaw, Kyle Sidow, Noah Simmons, and Kendall Turney. The Native Americans were Ashlyn Courtney, Carter Davis, Emma Forrest, Ambika Khurana, Jarod Mazer, Savannah Ott, Hunter Palmer, Hannah Sborz, Ryan Simpson, and Shelbie Spencer. Local Firefighters Take Part in Training Top rated instructors were selected from a nationwide pool to instruct advanced classes at the National Fire Academy wKere approximately 200 firefighters from West Virginia assembled in Emmitsburg, Md., recently for a weekend of advanced firefighting and fire service management classes. "No doubt, countless lives will be saved and property losses reduced in West Virginia as a direct result of this training and education," said Ed Smith, fire chief from Independent Fire Company.

Hospital Launches Equipment Campaign Jefferson Memorial Hospi- tal lauched its annual ',Tradi- tion of Caring" fundraising campaign this week, marking the ninth year that the hospital has sponsored the effort, ac- cording to Director of Develop- ment Stephanie Diedericks. The annual direct marl cam- paign is a request for donations from area residents, businesses and organizations to fund spe- cific equipment needs for the hospital. The appeal for funds is out- lined in a brochure, along with a list of the hospital's equip- ment needs. Some of the equip- ment featured in this year's brochure includes stretchers for the emergency, medical, and diagnostic imaging depart- ments, plus a portable Ultra- sound Unit for the Home Health Department. The newly-renovated Obstetrics Department is in need of an ad- ditional Newborn Infant Warmer, while Rehabilitation needs a new Steel Frame Mat Table to be used during the exericse and rehabilitation of patients. "Our equipment needs for fiscal year 2004 total over $43,000/' Diedericks said. "As, a not-for-profit hospital, Jefferson Memorial must rely on the generosity of the com- mnnity to help offset the cost of these vital medical equipment purchases," sheadded. She em- phasized that all contributions are tax deductible.
