Applaud local health centers this week

To The Editor,

Central Valley Health Network and its 13 Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) members are excited to celebrate National Health Center Week from Aug. 5-11, raising awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s Health Centers as local solutions for the Visalia and Tulare regions.

The theme of this year’s NHCW is “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Powering Healthier Communities.” One of the bright spots in America’s health care system, are its community health centers. CVHN health center members serve more than 550,000 patients in more than 100 community health center sites across 20 counties. Not only do they get the care they need under one roof, but they are also treated as individuals, with dignity and respect.

I invite you to take a moment during this week to learn more about the community health centers at Family HealthCare Network and Tulare Community Health Centers to participate in the open community health center week activities in your community, please visit us at www.cvhnclinics.org.

Truck driver thanks Exeter for their care

To The Editor,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the young people living in the neighborhood around Buena Vista and Portola. This community should be proud to have citizens like them. On Thursday night Aug. 2 I was driving a big truck and turned onto Buena Vista.

Unfortunately there were low hanging wires that I didn’t see in the dark. My trailer snagged a lute wire causing the wires to short out and the power pole snapped. Almost as soon as my truck stopped a young lady came up to the truck to make sure I was OK. As the evening went on while taking care of the follow up business to the accident many of the neighborhood young people would come up to me to see if I was OK or need anything.

This community should be proud of these young people. The parents and community have done a wonderful job raising these young people. I wish I had gotten their names so that I could publicly give praise to them. Thank you Exeter for your care, understanding and help.

WHS Football Boosters had a Blast on July 3rd

To The Editor,

On behalf of the Woodlake High School Football Boosters Club, a heartfelt, and belated, thank you to the Woodlake Kiwanis Club for sponsoring this year’s 3rd of July Blast. The event, held at the spectacular Twilight Park, included game booths, entertainment, and food and drink stands. The evening was capped off with a glorious fireworks display; all was a tremendous success! The Kiwanians addressed hundreds of details to assure a safe, fun, affordable, memorable Central Valley evening.

The Football Boosters are pleased our dunk tank and strongman game booth allowed us to interact with the community, demonstrate to our players the importance of team work off of the football field, and raise much-needed funds for the high school football program.

Thank you again Woodlake Kiwanians for a great event and your continued community support!
