I'm glad that I belong to a growing number of people in our small community of Julian California who give what they can to help improve the lives of people who need a bit of assistance. I'm not patting myself on the back here. I'm just glad that so many people who I know care so much for the people around them, including people they don't know. Lots of organizations need volunteers, and individuals often need help too. If you want to help but don't know where to begin, you may be able to begin in your own neighborhood. After a rain storm or a snow storm, you may be able to help a friend or neighbor by shoveling their outside stairs, walkways or driveway. Ask first. Don't scare anyone by hanging around their property without letting them know why you are there. If you are friendly with your neighbor, perhaps you can water plants, feed pets or walk dogs ifneeded. If you and your friend or neighbor are really friendly, you could volunteer to pick up groceries, pick up mail or offer to drive this person to appointments Julian has more organizations than I can ever remember and here are a few that could possibly use some volunteer assistance Meals ()n the Go, based at the Community United Methodist Church, delivers meals to seniors. C.E.R.T. and Teen C.E.R.T. is a first responder organization headed by Johnny and Diane Hake. They often assist other groups. The Julian Chamber of Commerce is an association of businesspeople that promotes commercial interests in our community. They Often need Volunteers. Check in with them at their office at the corner of Main Street and Washington, or call them at 1-760-765- 1857. Call any of the local schools or sports organizations to see what opportunities they have for volunteers. Julian has 2 women'sclubs, one is The Julian Woman's Club, for information about joining call 1-760-765-1876 and the other is The Julian Triangle Club. They put on the annual old fashioned Melodrama each October. Call them at 1-760-765-3617. We have a Lion's Club. They help many people in many ways. If you are a veteran, or the son or daughter of a veteran, you can join the local American Legion post #468 at the corner of Washington and Second Street 1-760-765-0126. They are very active in helping our community and would love to have new, active members. The Julian 4th of July Parade Committee is one of the local organizations that needs volunteers and seems almost invisible until the 4th of July. Contact through the Chamber of Commerce office at 1-760-765 -1857. The Julian Historical Society promotes learning about our local history. They have programs nearly every 4th Wednesday night of each month at 7 p.m. at their location at 2133 Fourth Street. Call them at 1-760-765-0436. The Julian Pioneer Museum, next to the Historical Society also needs volunteer docents. You canreach them at 1-760-765-0227. Look in the Orange Book, our local back cour try telephone directory for many more organizations that can use more volunteers. In 2003 when Mike and I were about to be married, my friends gave me a wedding shower. Most of us had known each other a long time. Instead of playing wedding shower games, each woman got up and told the group how long she had known me and how we first met. I met nearly every woman in that room while we volunteered here in Julian. I was happy then and am still happy to to say that my friends are a group of generous people. My friends help people who need a bit of help. They give their time and sometimes give more. When Julian PONY Baseball was started up here, some of the volunteers bought supplies with their own money to keep the program going. One made baseball jewelry and sold it to put money into the league. As we expanded the local sports programs, many devoted many hours sitting at bake sale tables or making items to sell at the bake sales to help finance the programs and the facilities. Telephone poles were donated to Jess Martin Park to make the first back stops. Trees were donated and tractors brought in to dig holes to plant the trees and the original fences. The playground equipment was donated and the labor to get it, transport it and set it up at Jess Martin Park was also all volunteer. On that day, over a half inch of snow fell on us as we poured concrete and set up that first Big Toy. The volunteers I get to work with each month and the volunteers I've worked with through the years are amazing. They are patient, smiling people who sometimes go beyond all expectations in helping others. Some dedicate their lives to make sure that everyone who Other volunteers that I yet they are also giving needs help has a better chance of getting it. know have just an hour here or there to help, all that they can and sometimes a little bit more, so they deserve as much credit for their commitment to help others as anyone who has more time or money. If you read this column regularly, then you know I come from a long line of volunteers. In my family, volunteering seems to be in our blood. My maternal grandmother baked and baked . to make meals for friends who lost most of what they ever had during the depression. Grandpa delivered meals to those friends and with those meals, my normally frugal grandparents showed a generous nature. When my mother was a school district receptionist, we were the family who owned a station wagon, so we were the people who delivered Christmas meals and small Christmas trees to the poorest families in the district. It's what we did and it's still what I do. These days I work with several groups of people who give their time, their money, their patience and their smiles to help people who need a helping hand. Thank you all! You are all one of the things I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving week! Stand up and be thanked! These are my thoughts. The gap in our economy is between what we have and what we think we ought to have - and that is a moral [ problem, not an economic one. -- Paul Heyne i * Tree Consulting and Inspection * Long Term Forest Maintenance and Planning * Hazardous Removal and Precision Felling * Ornamental Pruning and Lacing * Brush Clearing and Chipping FREE ES TIMA TES Licensed and Bonded Fully Insured for Your Protection ERIC DAUBER H: 760-765-2975 C: 760-271-9585 PO Box 254 JULIAN, CA. License #945348 92036 WE-8690A The Thanksgiving Table Our Thanksgiving table will be graced by green tomato chow-chow. The meal will be followed by green tomato mincemeat pie. We're drawing the line at fried green tomatoes. Why not fried green tomatoes? In New England the tomato season has to be a lot shorter than it is here so they're not traditional, but that's not the real reason. The real reason is that we despise fried green tomatoes. Oh, we've tried We've tried cornmeal, we've tried flour and egg. We've tried this technique and that. Beer batter even. None of them gets past one basic fact: Green tomatoes are sour. If you are in to sour, that's fine. We're not. But chow-chow and mincemeat alleviate the sour with sweet and it just becomes, well, interesting. People LIKE the chow-chow. No one likes mince pie, but they can't tell it's made of green tomatoes which is a plus, perhaps. This year we'll do mince pie with a cream cheese topping. Cuts the rich mincemeat and makes it quite tolerable. Actually, reasonably good. At least, better than PUmpkin pie which is another trick played on Pilgrims by Indians. Or something The chickens won't eat pumpkin--why should we? But they're picky chickens There are lots of green tomatoes because we have a late growing season up here in the back country mountains and there are still tomatoes on the vines when cold weather sets in. It hasn't been as cold as normal this year and we only pulled up the tomato plants last week. We harvested the last ZUCCHINI (!)for heaven's sake this week. (DOUBLE ii) We almost had zucchini for Thanksgiving but that seemed to be pushing it. So back to green tomato chow-chow alongwith the turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, corn casserole and so on and so forth It's going to be another over-eat feast and we'll love it. We always do. And the best part is Friday when the relatives come up and we set out everyone's leftovers. Yum. Our family has great staying power when it comes to eating. Maybe it's the pilgrim heritage, which we remember on Thanksgiving. Particularly the ancestor who was kicked out of the Massachusetts Bay Colony for lewd behavior.
