'315,000 building will house 60 persons Dedication services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, March 13, for the new Good Samaritan Home. Open house will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. the same day. Three years ago on June 6 a meeting of interested persons got together and a board was selected to formulate plans for the new project. As a result the $315,000 building with $50,000 worth of equipment is ready for occupancy when the open house is over. It will accommodate 60 persons in 27 double and six single rooms. In looking back, 0. L. Nasby, manager of the Home, reflects that the biggest problem was one out of his hands — a year ago the winter was so bad that a late start was made in the spring. Thus the anticipated opening is much later than he had hoped. THE LOCAL board consists of 14 members; they elected the Executive committee who are M. H. Honsbruch, chairman; Bob Peters, vice-chairman; C. W. Conn, treasurer; Russell Buchanan, secretary. Three wings open into a central area where the dining, rec- river valley, polling hills irid 5 to the horizon, i '•.'•''•'•'' ' rcational, chapel are nurses station located.
