Scout for food On Saturday, have your food at your door step. By Lisa Van De Hey Publisher/Editor Tuesday's mail brought a surprise in the form of a Letter to the Editor submitted by sup- porters of Orchard Hospital's Measure M that did not pass in the November 8 election. Enclosed with the letter was a check made out to Or- chard Hospital ER Fund in the amount of $330.00 from long time Gridley residents Dick and Anita Stewart. My first reaction was to email Orchard Hospital's CEO Steve Stark of the support shown who was bowled over at such a generous show of sup- port. This cheek, and any oth- ers received, will be accepted by the Hospital's Foundation, a 501 (3)C organization where a specific account is established designated for the Hospital's ER department, meaning the money can not be used for any- thing other than the ER de- partment. Support shown to the hos- pital is always appreciated, no matter how large or small, but to receive a check out of the blue specifically because of the disappointing November 8 re- sults means a lot not only to Stark, his staff and the Foun- dation but it could mean a big difference in the future of the ER if support continues from those who did vote for the mea- sure (2,300).

And this year's edition of the popular annual event was just as packed and exciting as always. Last Friday night, the community gathered on Veterans Day to say thanks to the veterans who make our freedoms possible. The event is a joint production of the Gridley Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5731 and American Legion Post 210. The evening's musical entertainment was provided by the Oroville Community Concert Band. The program included "The Star-Spangled Banner; "The Midway March," "We Shall Lift Lamps Of Courage, "The Pacif- ic,' "The Allied Honor March, "Band of Brothers; "The National Emblem March," and "The Homefront" The Gridley Monday Quilters, in an annual tradition, pre- sented six "Quilts of Valor" to worthy recipients. The Quilts of Valor are part of a national effort begun by Blue Star Mom Catherine Roberts to honor her son Nathaniel, who was deployed to Iraq in the early stages of Operation Iraqi Freedom. More than 145,000 quilts have been awarded since 2003, according to the Quilts Of Valor Foundation. This year's recipients were Marvin Hensley, Vere Gardner, Ed Patison, Michael Farr, Ken Tanabe and Fidencio Rameriz.
