Mrs. Conrad's Quilt Brings Donation to Chapel Fund The West Virginia Rehabilitation Center Foundation, Inc. has received a donation for the quilt that was donated by Mrs. Tacie Conrad of Perkins and the Gilmer County Senior Citizens to the Interfaith Chapel Fund Drive. The Quilt was displayed in the lobby of the Charleston National Bank for a period of two weeks with an appropriate sign suggesting, "the donor of the largest gift made to the Interfaith Chapel Fund with regard to the hand-made quilt will receive the quilt as a 3ift." Two weeks passed and there were several inquiries but no gifts. Dr. Raymond McCutcheon learned of the display and indicated an interest in participating in the project. A short time later, Dr. McCutcheon made a gift of $500 to the Chapel Fund, with the understanding that a portion of his gift was for the quilt. This gift did exceed any gifts that were tendered during the total display period. The West Virginia Rehabilitation Center Foundation, Inc. wants to take this opportunity to publicly thank Mrs. Conrad and the Gilmer County Senior Citizens for their contribution to the Interfaith Chapel Fund Drive. March 18, 1976 The Glenviile Democrat/Pathfinder 3 Boaters prime target for accidents Recreatienal boaters who ignore common boating safety principles are prime targets for accidents which often result in tragic endings, according to the U. S. Coast Guard's Office of Boating Safety. Elements common in Boating Accident Reports are outlined in the following short scenarios: Two men were duck hunting in a 10 foot jan boat when they spotted a flock of ducks and turned to fire at them. The sudden shifting of weight caused the boat to capsize. There were no Personal Floatation Devices (PFDs on board. One man survived by holding onto the boat but the other man drowned. Three men were hunting in an 11' 9" aluminum motorboat. The boat was powered by a 9.5 HP motor although it was only rated safe for 5.5 HP. The maximum safe capacity for the boat was 375 lb. In addition to the three hunters, there were three dogs, five dead racoons and hunting gear aboard. The water was rough, kicked up by 7-15 mph winds. About 40 yards off shore the boat swamped and capsized. Two of the men drowned. Two men in a 12 foot aluminum outboard were fishing about 100 yards Seniors to Hear Dr. Hailer Thurs. The senior citizens of Glenville will hear a presentation on "Environ- mental and Community Problems Related to Health" this Thursday, March 16, at 6 p.m., at the Glenville Senior Center as part of a statewide consumer education project, according to Region 7 project director Carol Yount of Philippi. The program is to be presented by Dr. Tom Hailer of Glenville on behalf of Glenville State College. It is one of 91 programs that have been scheduled in this seven-county region, and have and are being presented by various faculty members from Alderson-Broaddus, Davis & Elkins, Glenville State and West Virginia Wesleyan Colleges.
