Several of our staff mem- bers pack a bag 'in case' they can't get home. Some have stayed over and have worked extra shifts because other work- ers could not come in.

We extend our sym- pathy to the family and friends of Agnes Zgoda. Agnes had been a resi- dent at our center for sev- eral years moving here from Ivanhoe to be near family.
