News From the Brownsville Bailiwick & Beyond

Community clean up Day is coming to Brownsville on May 19. You can bring trash of all kinds, except hazardous waste, to Foothill fire Dept. from 8 until noon. A utility bill is required for proof of residency. Let's all get rid of that old stuff hanging around out behind the house. This service is sponsored by Randy Fletcher.

The Next Step group is hoping to bring Meals on Wheels to our area. However, the criteria for being served is pretty strict. To qualify a person must be 60+ years old, home bound and not able leave home without someone's assistance, and doesn't have adequate support for meals (not sure exactly what that means). These qualifications are probably going to be hard to meet, but we thought we would try. Please let us know (Books & More 675-3275) if you know of someone who might qualify and benefit from the program.

Look Back in Time – In 1909 the Bellevue Mine in LaPorte was working rich gravel at $75 to the car and had 40 men employed (much busier than today).

Hope to see you in Brownsville soon. Christine and Yvonne
