IVC Thanks Jerome County
On behalf of Interlink Volunteer Caregivers, we are pleased for the recent donation from Jerome County. Thank you to Commissioners Charles Howell, Cathy Roemer and Roger Morley for your continued support. IVC’s purpose is to help individuals and families maintain their dignity, independence and quality of life by bringing together persons of goodwill to serve within the community where there are critical unmet needs. As more of our residents face the challenges of trying to age with grace while dealing with chronic diseases or living alone, they require help with needs of everyday living. Jerome County’s support will help IVC provide vital transportation services to those who need them most.
Jerome County is well represented at IVC as there are numerous volunteers who provide transportation for people to health-related appointments and install wheel chair ramps, grab bars and hand railings. IVC volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Thank you, Jerome County, for believing in IVC!

Senior Center thanks Health Initiative Trust
The Ageless Senior Center in Kimberly is very grateful for the recent grant funds awarded by the Twin Falls Health Initiative Trus whose goal is to promote health and wellness in Twin Falls County by generously supporting services that pursue the same goal. As the Ageless Senior Center seeks to “nourish body and soul,” the support of the TFHIT is invaluable. With decreasing federal funds, rising food costs and increased regulatory requirements, the only way we can accomplish our goal is to seek outside funds to bolster our bottom line. On behalf of Bonnie Peter, site manager, the board of director, and all participants, we acknowledge the continued support of the TFHIT and say thank you for this wonderful gift.

Seniors thank helpers
Monday, My husband and I went to eat at Nelson’s Café. The road was barricaded off so the crosswalk light wouldn’t work, so we walked on around the crosswalk area. It was really icy. We went to eat and when we came back, me and my husband stepped off the curb into a hole and we both fell together. He got up, but I could not get my feet under me. Nobody stopped for about five minutes, then two cars with angels of mercy helped him get me up. We are very grateful to see Christian people around our area. We thank them, but no names were given. My husband is 75 and I am 72, so this means a lot to us.
Thank you from Alpine Manor Assisted Living
The staff and residents of Alpine Manor I in Twin Falls and Alpine Manor II in Kimberly would like to thank everyone who donated Christmas gifts to our residents. As always, the folks of Magic Valley have been very generous. We greatly appreciate the gifts, food, entertainment and time given to our residents.
A special thanks to Canyon Ridge High School for a very special Christmas program. Again, thanks to everyone.
