Membership drive

The Shippenville Ambulance Service -- represented here by Rich Rawson of Strattanville (left) and Corey Buzard of Limestone -- has started its annual membership drive. Letters were sent out to people in the ambulance service’s coverage area, which includes Shippenville Borough; Elk, Paint, Washington and Knox townships; the East End Road area of Beaver Township; and the Venus area in Pinegrove Township. However, membership letters did not go to all service areas due to issues with postal routes, specifically Washington Township residents with Tionesta addresses and Elk Township residents with Knox addresses. Due to this issue, members of the ambulance service will be at the Shippenville fire hall from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15, to help people get a membership. Residents who want a membership but can’t make it to the fire hall on Feb. 15 may call (814) 782-3233 on that day only and a membership application can be mailed to them.
