Consider the Gift that Keeps Giving!
An “In Honour” donation is a unique way to celebrate those who are
special to us. Occasions such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries,
or the holidays are just a few examples when this type of donation
may be considered. Remembering someone close to you with an “In
Honour” donation as an alternative to flowers or a more traditional
gift, means a lasting contribution to someone in need. Donors
receive an official tax receipt for a minimum $10.00 donation & we
will send a card
acknowledging the donation with the
appropriate occasion being celebrated. “In
Honour donations are great to give and, of
course, wonderful to receive. Contributions
would stay in our community supporting and
enhancing the programs and services provided by Community Care. The next time you
are struggling to find that perfect gift, consider the gift that keeps on giving.
A LESSON IN POLITICAL SPIN
Judy Wallman, a professional genealogical researcher, discovered that
Hillary Clinton's great-great uncle, Remus Rodham, was hanged for horse
stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889. The only known photograph
of Remus shows him standing on the gallows. On the back of the picture is
this inscription: "Remus Rodham; horse thief, sent to Montana Territorial
Prison 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by
Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889."
Judy e-mailed Hillary Clinton for comments. Hillary's staff of professional image adjusters sent back the following biographical sketch:
"Remus Rodham was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory. His
business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and
intimate dealings with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted
several years of his life to service at a government facility, finally taking
leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player
in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In
1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his
honour when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed."
And THAT is how it's done folks!

A little old lady sold pretzels on a street corner for a dollar each.
Everyday, a young man would leave his office building at
lunchtime and, as he passed the pretzel stand, he would leave
her $1.00 - but never take a pretzel !! This offering went on for
more than 3 years. The two of them never spoke. One day, as the
young man passed the old lady's stand and left his dollar as usual, the pretzel lady spoke to him for the first time in over 3 years.
Without blinking an eye, she said, "They're $1.25 now."

Community Champions Week
Over the last 8 years, Community
Care for Central Hastings has
participated in the North American
Mayor’s For Meals campaign
today. The campaign was designed
to promote the challenge of
senior’s hunger and the role Meals
on Wheels plays in our community
to address this challenge. The
Mayor’s for Meals campaign began
as an annual event in the United
States to increase public awareness,
recruit new volunteers and increase
funding for Meals on Wheels
organizations, the event has
extended to Ontario, with events
being held across Canada. Mayors
from around the country were
asked to help deliver meals with
their local Senior Nutrition
Program to seniors in their
community.
However, in 2014 this single day
that was known as Mayors for
Page 16
Meals, has been become a
week-long celebration called
Community Champions Week.
During the third week of March –
Monday, March 17 through Friday,
March 21 local officials, celebrities,
athletes and/or business owners are
being encouraged to get out, speak
up, deliver meals and raise
awareness about senior hunger by
participating in the March for Meals
campaign. This as an international
campaign provides the opportunity
to shed light on our valuable
services, celebrate our homebound
neighbours and generate the
resources needed to address senior
hunger.
Elinor White and Ellen FeganWright, Board Members for the
Marmora Food Bank assisted with
preparing the soup for delivery.
The Marmora Helping Hands Food
Bank provides an essential service
in the community.
The Marmora Helping Hands Food

On June 21, Community Care
for Central Hastings (CCCH)
partnered with Hunter Ford of
Madoc to conduct a Drive One
for Your Community Event.
Ford of Canada’s unique event, known as Drive 4UR Community, is a
way for local Ford Dealerships to support a local community or school
partner in their fundraising events. For every test drive that is completed during the daylong event, Ford of Canada donates $20.00 to
the partner, up to $6000.00. This event began in 2010 and so far
more than $4 million have been raised for the community partners.
Pat Dobb, the Executive Director for CCCH stated that
―Community Care for Central Hastings is thrilled that Hunter Ford
chose our agency as this year’s partner in in the Drive 4UR Community Event. Only 66% of our funding comes from the Southeast Local
Health Integration Network, CCCH is responsible for fundraising the
additional 34% required to run our
programs and these funds will definitely help.‖
Scott Gougeon from Hunter Ford indicated that ―Hunter Ford was
happy to partner up with Community Care for Central Hastings for
this year’s Drive One for Your Community Event. We feel privileged
to work with a group that plays such an important role in our community.
“Thanks to the support of the community, the event, which was
held in Tweed, raised $2820.00 for Community Care for Central
Hastings.
(Continued next page)
Page 18
(cont’d) On Sept 4/14, Scott Gougeon, along with his staff,
presented Lynn Bird, CCCH’s Transportation Coordinator,
and Veronica Flint, Meals on Wheels Coordinator, with a
cheque for the funds raised during the Test Drive Event.
The staff of Community Care for Central Hastings would like to take this
opportunity to thank Hunter Ford, Ford of Canada, Pizza Latina for the
loan of their parking lot, and the community of Central Hastings for their
support. Lynn Bird, CCCH’s Transportation Coordinator, expressed her
gratitude towards Hunter Ford and said that Hunter Ford has always
been a huge supporter of CCCH, especially the Transportation Program.
She further said that ―Hunter Ford partnering with CCCH for this event has
been overwhelming.‖ Indicating that the funds raised through this event
will go a long way in supporting the Transportation Program.
This program provides seniors in our community with both medical and
personal transportation trips. In 2013, 7988 trips were completed by 53
dedicated volunteers.
By working together, we can make a difference.
"Chutzpah"
is a Yiddish word meaning
