News Briefs

Autism event update

"Buddy's Benefit - Aces for Awareness" volleyball tournament and the "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" benefit walk for autism awareness have been postponed one week, from Saturday April 25 to Saturday May 2.

Information about the events is on Page C-9 of today's Sequim Gazette. Everything is the same except for the date.

The Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe lost an honored elder, Ms. Beatrice Charles, the Klallam language teacher for the tribe, and her service is on Saturday. Out of respect for the family, the event has been rescheduled.

Disaster team volunteers meet

Volunteers of the Red Cross Disaster Action Team meet at the Clallam County Emergency Operations Center at the Clallam County Courthouse at 6 p.m. April 22.

Volunteers will get a briefing from Jayme Wisecup about the resources of the county EOC and how the volunteers will relate to the county disaster operation during an actual disaster incident.

Trained volunteers of the Red Cross Disaster Action Team are located in Port Angeles, Sequim, Forks and Clallam Bay/Seiku. A team is being formed in Neah Bay.

The volunteers are trained to respond to fires and natural disasters in each community. Call 457-7933.
