The United Church of Christ volunteers took over delivery in March and St. Thomas Episcopal is just completing their turn in April. The members of First Lutheran will deliver in May, all using their personal cars. Over-all volunteer chairman is Mrs. John Schutter. Chairman of Volunteers from each church are: Perry Collins, First Methodist; Everyone needs a systematic savings plan which will fit their budget.
