News Outlook Your Hometown Newspaper March 20, 2014 - 9 0 Photo by Cecil Lawson Area American Red Cross representatives were on hand Thursday morning at the Bath County Fiscal Court's regular March meeting for the approval of a proclamation declaring March as American Red Cross Month. The Red Cross is the largest volunteer emer- gency and disaster relief agency in the world.

A PROCLAMATION March is American Red Cross Month - a special time to recognize and thank our Everyday He- roes - those who reach out to help their neighbors when they are in need. American Red Cross he- roes are on the front lines every day. They volunteer their time, take life-saving courses or provide finan- cial donations to help those in need. We would like to remem- ber our heroes here in Bath County who give to help people in need. They work tirelessly to help in time of disaster, provide resources, or the comfort of a helping hand. They provide round-the-clock support to members of the military, veterans, and their families, and teach lifesaving classes in CPR, aquatic safety and first aid. Across the country and around the world, the America Red Cross re- sponded to hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and wildfires, the tragedy at the Boston Marathon, and typhoon Haiyan in the Phil- ippines. When an injured ser- vice member ended up in a hospital far from home, the American Red Cross offered comfort. When a lifeguard jumped in to save a drowning child or some- one stepped up to help a heart attack victim, the American Red Cross was there We dedicate the month of March to all those who support the American Red Cross mission to support and alleviate human sui- feting in the face of emer- gencies. Our community depends on the American Red Cross,which relies on donations of time and mon- ey to fulfill its humanitarian mission. Now, there, I, Lowell Jamison, Judge/Executive of Bath County, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of Bath County and Kentucky, do hereby pro- claim March 2014 as Amer- ican Red Cross Month. I encourage all Americans to. support this organization and its noble humanitarian mission. In witness thereof. I have hereunto set my hand this 13th day of March, 2014 and of Bath County, Ken- tucky.
