U.S. Rep. Jeff Denham (R – Atwater) and Assemblyman Bill Berryhill (R – Ceres) spoke at the eighth annual Turlock Friends of Scouting luncheon Tuesday, hosted by the Turlock Noon Rotary at the Turf Club.
Students from Pitman High's home economics program sewed 30 dresses for donation to the Salvation Army in Turlock. The Kiwanis Club of Turlock bought the material from Cloth and Quilts in Turlock, at a discounted price.
Three abandoned puppies that had quite an adventure recently are now safe in foster homes and awaiting adoption thanks to local animal rescue volunteers and the efforts of Turlock and Merced vet clinics.
Kristin Cooley was tired of looking at herself in the mirror. The wife and mother of two young children had dropped off in her fitness routine and did not like the results. She remembered what it felt like to be physically fit and the former college soccer player decided it was time to do something about it.
As a young girl in rural west Texas, Dell Perales could be found in her family's kitchen by her mother's side frosting cakes. The cakes, pies and treats that had warmed in the Perales' stove and cooled on their counter top would be carted off and given to the local disabled assistance society in the community and Perales would learn her first lesson on volunteering.
