Ukiah Daily Journal: 12 Jan 1981: CCS for radiation transportation
.V*w travel club forming in Ukiah CCS for radiation transportation A new and different travel club Is being formed in Ukiah, Suzanne Theilig, of Soroptimist International of Ukiah, announced today. Sponsored by Soroptimists, the new club is for travel to Santa Rosa. The purpose is to transport those who need to make the trip to and from the southland city regularly for radiation treatments, which are not available in this community. The new creation is being called the CCS (Caring Citizens Sharing) Club and is holding its organizational meeting Friday at 2 p.m. in the Financial Federal Savings and Loan building, corner of State and Gobbi streets. Laura Long, 90-year-old life time member of the service club, is originator of the concept. Because any number of Ukiahans travel regularly to Santa Rosa, and because there also are a number of Ukiahans who must travel to that community for treatments, it seemed to her that with Just a little organizing one group could provide transportation for the other. Often, those taking radiation treatments do not feel up to driving back and forth, themselves, Long pointed out to her colleagues. Members of the CCS Club will only be required to provide transportation to the Sonoma County city one week-day a month. Both men and women are eligible for membership in the club. They are Invited to attend Friday's meeting and become charter members. "It will take just a little of your time, yet bring rich rewards in knowing you have provided a much-needed service," Theilig stated in her announcement. Theilig, the Soroptimist service chairman, will be in attendance Friday to discuss the particulars with prospective members, as will Lorls Tuckering of the American Cancer Society. Refreshments will be served by Cor- rlne Liberty.
