We are drafting information about this new program and distributing it to local nursing organizations and funeral homes. Some services we hope to provide are standing guard at the nurses’ casket during visitation and at the beginning and end of the funeral service. The group may also recite the “Nightingale Tribute” or the “Final Call to Duty.”
To request the Nursing Honor Guard at a funeral or memorial service, loved ones may contact the funeral home or the individuals listed below.
Honor Guard services will be provided based on the availability of volunteers. Nursing friends of the deceased are welcome to participate regardless of being a committee member.
For more information or if you are interested in joining the list of Honor Guard volunteers, contact Joni-Jill Tobrocke at email@example.com, 561-8050 or Wanda Flynn at firstname.lastname@example.org, 566-7450.

TO THE EDITOR: The Essex County Agricultural Society would like to thank everyone who supported the 165th Essex County Fair.
It was nice to see all the visitors enjoying the fair. We could not put this fair together without your contribution, including the guests who paid at the gate, the vendors and the businesses that sponsored events.
Thank you, and we hope to see you again in 2014. Mark your calendar for the 166th Essex County Fair Aug. 6 to 10.
Any comments or suggestions are welcome. Please email email@example.com or comment on Facebook.

TO THE EDITOR: I am a candidate for Ward 1 councilor and want to earn your vote in the Democratic Primary, Sept. 10.
Plattsburgh City Democrats endorsed me because they believe I am a leader with vision and a strong work ethic.
