Check Out The Lighthouse Center For Vision Loss Store For Gift Ideas

I pass by the Lighthouse Center for Vision Loss, 4505 West Superior Street (also known as Duluth LIghthouse for the Blind) every time I head to our neighborhood grocery store.  When I was a Duluth Lion's Club Member I helped to raise funds for the organization and collected used glasses on a regular basis from St. Luke's.  While I was in a public restroom yesterday I saw a poster for the Lighthouse and their low vision store.  I had no idea they had one, THIS is fabulous!

Volunteer to Ring Bells for the Salvation Army to Earn Bulldogs and Huskies Tickets

While many people in the Northland have already donated their time to ring bells for the Salvation Army, there is still a very large need for people.

Volunteer Fire Departments In The Northland Are Short On Volunteers

According to WDIO.com the rural fire departments in our area are experiencing a shortage of volunteers.  Actually, they have volunteers, but only a few can be really be counted on to show up when needed.  Then, additional volunteer departments need to be called in and that leaves their township without a crew.  What can be done to solve this growing problem?  Is it possible that volunteer fire departments will soon be a thing of the past?  Who would someone living in the rural areas call with a medical emergency or a fire?
