8B The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, April 26, 1990 Lewisburg conducts an annual Spring clean-up campaign and of- fers free pick-up of trash and debris to keep the City looking nice and to get rid of accumulated junk and lit- ter. This year, City Council has des- ignated the week of April 30 through May 4 as "Keeping Lewisburg Beau- tiful Week," Litter is not only a costly manage- ment problem, but it is offensive and can cause numerous health-re|ated hazards. It is extremely important citizens be educated to the serious conditions litter can cause. Lewis- burg, therefore, will join Federal, State and local orgamzations to in- crease public awareness of the litter problem. During the week of April 30 through May 4, City crews will pick up trash and debris left at tile curb only on your regular trash collection day. Your extra trash will be picked up one time only. Your cooperation in stacking trash neatly will be appreciated -- particularly tree limbs and branches. a pile of branches is time-consuming to load, and I ask that you cut t~em into sections of 4' to 5' and tie in bundles. Walk-a-Thon: Sunday, April 29 at 2 p.m., the annual March of Dimes Walkathon departs from the Lewisburg Chiropractic Clinic just West of town.

Ac- cording to Sue Sailor, Director of Volunteer Program is to render as- sistance to the hospital and to carry out programs that will improve pa- tient care. Sixty-five volunteers gave over 12,800 hours this year doing many things for the patients, patient families, staff members and the medical center as a whole, and they do them so well we sometime forget to say thanks -- thanks for deliver- ing flowers, faxing x-ray reports to physicians, receiving phone calls, letting families know a loved one is out of surgery, giving helpful direc- tions, staffing the Gift Shop seven days a week, transporting patients on admission to their room and dis- charging patients to their cars and many other valuable assistances," Ms Sailor said. Volunteers deliver two newspa- pers daily to patients. They also de- liver approximately 11,000 pieces of mail a year, and approximately 2000 flower arrangements. On-going proj- ects of the organization include: T- shirts to all newborns (approximately 500 yearly); toboggans for all new- borns; small stuffed animals to each pediatric surgery patient; three $500 scholarships to graduating seniors from Greenbrier East, Greenbrier West and Union High School; two $500 scholarships to outstanding LPN students. Special projects this year in- cluded the purchase of a new wheel chair, and five sleeper chairs for pe- diatrics. These chairs easily adjust into upright, lounge and sleep posi- tions. These will be used by mothers staying with their child while he is in the hospital.
