Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, Moy 17, 1973 Council members direct executive HAMILTON (CP) Mem- bers of the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) are telling their executive what they want the organization to do, rather than the ether way round, says council president Thelma Rolinger. Mrs. Rolinger of Edmonton said in an interview Wednesday that the group's annual meeting now being held has been organ- ized so that delegates mil be setting up guidelines for the work of the next two years. "What the delegate body is doing now is projecting to the leadership the focus and future of the organization "In workshops and general sessions they have stated what they want as members, as women in this world, as com- munity volunteers. "If" membership is blocked from a direct voice, then you begin building up frustrations. Members want to be part of de- cisions The 70 delegates representing the council's members, have been deliberating in work- shop sessions since the four-day meeting opened Tuesday. They have agreed they want NCJW to continue its interest m the family unit, with special emphasis on the Jewish family. Mrs. Rolinger said the new approach to membership in- volvement began about six years ago. In the past two years, each of the 10 local sec- tions has had a representative on the national board to become part of the decision making "It has allowed us to change things more quickly. And with the initiation of these coun- cillors, we have a better rela- tionship between national and local leadership. "Some of the sections have begun an experimental process of group leadership, a sharing rather than an authoritari m ap- proach. It's easier to develop leadership training, to share knowledge. And if the section president has to move to South America tomorrow, the group doesn't fall apart." Introducing the 1973 Supercar. Comfortable big car interior. Essential.

Alberta Council of aging names city woman to board By JUDE TURIC Dorothy Anderson, director of the Golden Mile Senior Citi- zens' Centre was recently ap- pointed to the board of direc- tcjs of the Alberta Couscil of Aging. Her appointment came at the annual convention which was held in Red Deer, and her posi- tion on the board as well as the term of office, will be out- lined at the June meeting. Mrs. Anderson has been ac- tively involved with senior citi- zens through her work with the centre, and has been a member of the association for three years. Two years ago, she was the recipient of the J. W. Buchanan award which is presorted to a j deserving individual to further their work with senior citizens in the province. Mrs. Anderson said that the council has done a tremen- dous lot for the aged "They have worked a lot on senior citizens' complexes and have recently done a great deal on information concerning new hoiteing projects. "They've pushed the building of attractive and convenient high-rise apartments and are always attempting to advance the cause of the senior citi- she said. During the recent conven- tion, Mrs. Anderson said the council members conducted workshops on pie-retirement, community based services, the training of workers for senior- citizen related programs, an- swers for anxiety, unused health services and senior citi- zens' housing. "Pre-retirement is becoming a concern because so many people are now retiring before the age limit. WeettJhimsv QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanii Capitol Furniture BIdg.

Mrs. Anderson added that a council committee is presently concerned -with helping the eld- erly who live in their own homes and haven't the means to maintain major repairs. She said minor repairs are often taken care of by student projects, or senior citizen grants, but that major work is beyond the capabilities of the senior citizen. The objectives of the Alberta Council of Aging are. to define the needs of the aging and aged and to bring current needs to the attention of appropriate government or voluntary agen- cies for action; To e n c o u rage systematic compilation of information on situations facing the elderly; Encourage research on mat- ters of concern and dissemmin- ate findings: foster inter-agen- cy communication and co-oper- ation; To inspect senior citizens homes and lodges and to take apporpriate action when neces- sary through the government agency concerned; To establish scholarships and research awards for work in the senior citizens' field; To start meals on wheels or- ganizations in centres where such a service is needed, co- ordinate services to the elderly and make recommendations on housing.

But picnics are still a lot of fun, and can be a great sub- stitute for the usual run-of- the-mill type of weekend many of us sometimes expe- rience. Planning ahead often spoils the effeci of a good gather- ing, so why not try toe im- promptu approach. When the group is together and handing out the there's- nothing-'to-do line, hit them with, 'hey let's have a pic- nic! After the boos and hoots have died down to a gentle roar, do a high pressure sell and get them thoroughly in- terested in the possibility of seeing things your way. Have them consider the fun of piling into cars, driv- ing out to Park Lake or even Henderson and roasting hot dogs, marshmallows, guzzling pop, munching chips and learning the intricate art of starting a real live fire. Don't forget to mention how great food, done over an open flame tastes and how the occasional hot dog dropped in the ashes adds an out- doorsy flavor. Remember to laud the pleasures of having marsh- mallows go up -in flamee. and the nice burnt aroma thatlingers on your sticky fingertips. Remind them that stains wash out of jeans very nicely and even help fade them because the acid the color. For excitement, suggest someone bring a Frisbee and then count the number of times the girls curse as their fingernails break when they finally catch a ground throw. If the group seems slightly enthused by this time, add an offer to bring your baseball and bat and maybe the foot- ball stuck in the back of the closet. You might even get thoroughly carried away and challenge all to a swing con- test to see who can get the highest; or just enjoy long- lost arts like sliding on a slide and riding a merry-go- round. For those who really don't care to be healthy and athlet- ic, suggest they bring a swim suit and towel and take in the sun for a couple hours. If anyone at all has caught the picnic fever and is ready to trade all for a toasted hot dog bun, grab the nearest twig, whittle it into shape and have fun It'll probably turn out to be ore of the best weekends since you froze your belly to- bogganing.
