Cooks were: Ruby Daugherty, Pat Lawrence, Susie Williams, Phyllis Tate, Gwen Ramsey, Janet Phillips, Joy Wells, LoRei Deweese, Mary Joe Franklin, Jane Eaton Henderson, Linda Keown, Anita Gossett, Amy Hooten, Case Hooten, Elaine Grubb, Barbara Sullivan, Becky Hankins, Ann Wells, Peggy Sisk, Pam Pendley, Jean Chancellor, Allison Ramsey, Doris Bray, Romanza Johnson, Lois Russ, Barbara Blanton, Fred Tate, Brenda Smith, Regina Elms, Renee McGuyer, and Diane Dyer.
There were also crafts for adults and children. Donations made to the Red Cross stay within this community, either by paying for training of volunteers, aid for fire victims, or food and/or clothing for families displaced by disaster. The Red Cross gets no federal funding, despite having a federal mandate to respond to disasters and they receive no United Way funding. The Red Cross survives solely on donations.
Funds raised supports disaster relief, fire victims, emergency military communications, first aid and CPR training and disaster preparedness right here in South Central Kentucky. The South Central Kentucky Chapter serves Allen, Butler, Edmonson, Logan, Monroe, Simpson and Warren Counties-more than 205,000 people.
Becky and Barbara are truly Red Cross Heroes!
