We need two new callers for AARP; you can call Thelma Bridges, at the number listed in the Dispatch, if your are interested. It’s a very simple job each month which would only take about 30 minutes of your time. You get to know people and just remind them of the meeting each month.
Santa Clara County is expecting extended rain beginning Sunday, January 13 through Friday, January 18. Rain and cold temperatures put people at risk for serious health conditions, including hypothermia, which is caused by dangerously low body temperature. Please share this information with those who may need it.
Daytime and overnight warming centers and expanded shelters services will be available starting Sunday, January 13 through Friday, January 18, 2019. For a printable PDF listing of facilities click here: http://bit.ly/WarmCenters1-2-2019.
For more information on shelter locations and warming centers around Santa Clara County, visit the County of Santa Clara Office of Supportive Housing at https://www.sccgov.org/sites/osh/NeedAssistance/warmingcenters/Pages/home.as
Please check on family, friends, neighbors and others who might be at risk of cold-related health conditions:
• Older adults with inadequate food, clothing, or heating.
• Babies or individuals with pre-existing medical conditions sleeping in cold rooms.
• People who remain outdoors for long periods — the homeless, hikers, hunters, etc.
• People who drink alcohol or use drugs.
If someone experiences a body temperature below 95° F, please get immediate medical attention.
• Look for a warm room or shelter and remove any wet clothing.
• Warm the center of the body first—chest, neck, head, and groin—using warm blankets.
• Warm beverages can help increase body temperature, but DO NOT consume or give
alcoholic beverages or try to give beverages to an unconscious person.
Older adults can be more at risk because they often make less body heat due to a slower metabolism and less physical activity.
People 65 years of age and older should take cold weather precautions:

FEBRUARY 2, 2019 10:00 AM, Saint Frances Cabrini Church, 15333 Woodard Road, Between Bascom Ave. and Union Ave.; southside of Camden, San Jose, 95124
Coordinated by Willow Glen Post 318 The American Legion
This service is open to veterans organization, patriotic and fraternal organizations, and individuals who want to share in a tribute to four chaplains of differing faiths who, in brotherhood, gave their life so others may have a second chance at living theirs.
Their act exemplified the meaning of duty to their God and Country, and love of their fellow man. They were truly men of God who, in brotherhood, conscientiously made the ultimate sacrifice for their fellow troops.
The four chaplains, of the Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant faiths, were aboard the troop ship ATS Dorchester in the winter dark North Atlantic sailing toward England when a torpedo struck in the early morning hour of February 3, 1943. The ship sank within a very short period of time beneath the icy waters along with over 700 of the 900 aboard. Many of those who survived attributed their survival directly to the assistance and acts of compassion of the four chaplains aboard the ship that night.
Organizations are encouraged to bring their National Colors and unit banner for an opening ceremony procession and posting during the ceremony. Groups must bring their own flag stands for the posting of their colors. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend. Share in this remembrance and tribute to four men whose service to our men and women in uniform, in war and peace, is often forgotten.
