YUMA COUNTY LIBRARIES DISTRICTS 2020 VIRTUAL SUMMER READING PROGRAM!
Summer is just around the corner and with that comes our yearly Summer Reading Program. Our virtual Summer Reading Program will kick off on May 30, and will end on July 11.
Crane Elementary District is partnering in the USDA Farmers to Families Food Box program as a local food distribution hub. To learn more about the Farmers to Families Food Box program, please see the attached flyer.
Crane is looking for volunteers to help pack the boxes with the bulk produce at any of the District’s seven meal distribution sites.
Volunteer help will be needed beginning Monday, June 1 beginning at 9:30 am. Because of concerns over COVID-19, the number of people that will be in one location at a time will be limited. Attached is a sign-up form with the location tabs on the left, the maximum number of volunteers per site (pink column) and the requested start time. There is some information at the top of the form as well.
This sign up form is really only set up for a day, so volunteers can let us know how many or what days and times they are available to commit to. Once people respond forms will be created for each day of the week.
To volunteer or for more information, please contact: Suzanne M. Cooper
Thank you so much for helping our community partners in this very worthwhile cause!
On March 19, 1956, the Yuma County Board of Supervisors canvassed the election results of a special election held March 17, 1956, for the purpose of determining whether or not a designated area within Yuma County, Arizona should be organized as a hospital district as provided by the Hospital Act of 1949.
There was a total of one thousand eighteen ballots cast and eight hundred ninety-one votes were cast in favor of the creation of a Hospital District and votes cast for the election of a Board of Directors. As a result, the Board of Supervisors ordered the establishment of Hospital District Number One, Yuma County, Arizona and appointed the Board of Directors, which was comprised of the five people that received the highest number of votes.
The newly appointed Board of Directors were: Esther Allen; John C. Smith, Jr.; F. C. “Frosty” Braden; Sidney S. Woods; and George Lindsay. Board of Supervisors members were: Glen H. Strohm (Chairman); M. G. Miniken, and Otis Shipp.
