We hope this will result in a new determination to reach goals this year, and not just new year resolutions, soon to be erased and forgotten. But, when members reach their goal and feel so good and happy, then they can look back and say - "What could have been more, in 1974." Well, our weight loss was 18 1/2 pounds after settling down from all the "Christmas goodies." Making a grand total of 3,645 1/2 pounds lost. Since we are getting adjusted to the new time change, and the be- ginning of the new year, let's get down to business and stay right on your good Weight Wat- chers food and have a good weight loss next week. You will be proud you did. Please read the Weight Wat~ cher ad beginning this week and continuing for 6 weeks.

I I I ,Rescue Squad I II I Last week the Tri-City Res- cue Squad made 13 local runs and 7 out of town runs, travel- ing a total of 1,056 miles on the ambulance. There were runs made to DeFuniak Springs, Fort Rucker, Montgomery, Birmingham, Milton, Pensa- cola and Opp. Maintenance was needed on two of the Tri-City ambulances which was made last week. Former Captain James Smith and Secretary-treasur- er Pete Dirga resigned from the Rescue Squad forpersonal rea- sons last week. Necessary elections were held for their replacement. Taking over as Captain was Leiutenant Ray Flemings, having been elected at the last meeting. Tommy Bishop was named Lieutenant and Foy Peterson was elected Secretary-treasurer. With a change in adminis- tration, squad members want to continue to offer their very best service to the Tri-City Community. They have done a superb job in the last year and should be highly com- mended on their services. It requires a lot of self sacri- fice to be a member of the rescue squad, being called on at any time, making it neces- sary to drop what ever they are doing for the call. Ser- vices by the men are strictly volunteer and deserving o.* high praise. Our hats are off to these men for a job well done the past year and good wishes for every success the year 1974.
