Michelle Holt FamilyJay Holt has been fighting cancer for several years. He has done everything possible to attain a cure but in the end he is losing his fight with cancer. His wife and family are rallying around him and are doing everything they can to help and comfort each other. This is a time the family will never forget and it needs to be a time when they are together and not worrying about anything but being together. Michelle is a teacher at the NorthSevierMiddle School and has had to take a lot of personal time off and has used up most of her leave days. She needs our help to be able to stay home and not worry about what she will do to pay the bills tomorrow.

There is an account set up at Zions bank in Salina and Richfield where you can make donations to help assure that Jay and Michelle’s last few days together are more peaceful and worry free.

They appreciate your kindness and generosity and will forever be grateful.

Friends of Jay and Michelle Holt

Utah Food Bank and Central Utah Food Sharing partner with Boy Scouts of America to Collect Food for local Families



Utah Food Bank and its partner agencies across the state are working with the Boy Scouts of America to help Fight Hunger Statewide during the 28th annual Scouting for Food, scheduled for Saturday, March 22.

This food drive comes at a critical time when supplies at emergency food pantries are beginning to thin following the holiday season.

“It is so rewarding to see the Boy Scouts of America, the Utah National Parks Council, the Trapper Trails Council, the Great Salt Lake Council, and the Utah National Guard all working together to help fight hunger within their own communities,” said Ginette Bott, Utah Food Bank chief development officer. “The food gathered across the state will have a great impact on the one in five Utah kids at risk of missing a meal today.”

Scouts will be delivering food donation bags to homes statewide during the week of March 17. Residents statewide are encouraged to leave food donations on their doorstep by 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 22, using either the bag provided or any other bag or box. Local Boy Scouts will be going door-to-door collecting the donations that will then be delivered to Central Utah Food Sharing.

Donated food should be commercially packaged and non-perishable items. Most needed food items include beef stew, chili, peanut butter, boxed and canned meals, canned meats, and canned fruits and vegetables, soups, and macaroni and cheese.

“The food donations received from our community will be used to help neighbors and friends in our own community,” said Roene Shaw of Central Utah Food Sharing. “Families who go without food look a lot like you and me. They are our neighbors, co-workers and friends, and they need our help.”

The NSHS Lady Wolves volleyball team would like to invite everyone to their last home game tonight, Wednesday, October 23.  This is Senior Night, and the senior teammates, Brynn Okerlund, Lainey Edwards, Devyn Sorensen, and Megan Johnson have decided to make this a ‘PINK’ game- giving light to Breast Cancer Awareness and Early Detection.  Players will be wearing pink, and encourage fans to do so as well.  Pink tee’s will be available for $10 with all profits being donated to Breast Cancer Awareness.

These seniors will be paying special tribute to local cancer survivors and are excited to play ball after the first ‘honorary serve’ is attacked by a special local cancer survivor—you’ll want to attend to find out who!!

The senior girls are encouraging all women to “get a mammo scheduled for our mommas’ and to call either theGunnisonValleyHospital(435-528-2125) or theSevierValleyMedicalCenter(893-0262) to schedule mammograms.

“We want everyone to keep in mind that early detection saves lives,” said Brynn Okerlund,” one of the event’s organizers.

In addition, if you mention “Mammo for Momma” when calling in October to schedule your appointment between now and the end of the year, you will receive a special gift at the time of your appointment.

Freshmen will start playing at 3:30 p.m. with JV to follow, and Varsity is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m.

“You won’t want to miss this PINK game,” said Okerlund. “Come out and support your Lady Wolves as they take on Emery!”

Gunnison Valley Home Care & Hospice  “Run to Remember”

Support Gunnison Valley Home Care & Hospice’s annual 5KRun /Walk fundraising event.  This year our event will be held at Palisade State Park in Sterling, Utah.  Event date is September 28, 2013.  Pre-registration 8:30 am and Run/Walk begins at 9:00 am.

This year’s theme is “Run Any Race At Any Pace”.  Participants range in age from 1 to 99 years old.  We have competitive 5K runners, parents with their children, and of course our Hospice families.  For our Hospice family members this is an opportunity to honor and remember their loved one, and reunite with the Gunnison Valley Hospice staff that provided them care.

I’m sure you are wondering what we do with the money we raise.  Our Hospice provides “end of life care” to families in our communities, with or without insurance.  This fundraiser also helps support our grief and bereavement efforts for our Hospice families for up to one year after the death of a loved one.

We would like to thank the local community merchants in advance for their generosity in helping us obtain items for our prize drawing for all participants.  Special thanks to the Palisade State Park staff and rangers.

Participation Fee:  $15.00 for adults     $5.00 children (12 under)

Donations Accepted
