at Retired Senior Volunteer Patrol
The most prominent "Star" is RSVPer Maurice Eis who was just honored with the Dr. Edgar Lutz Award for the Year 2001, given by the North County Council on Aging. The Award was established in 1990 in memory of Dr. Lutz and created to honor his special interest in seniors and to acknowledge his dedication to improve the lives of seniors in the North County community. The Award will be presented to Maury on May 24.
Maury has been a member of the RSVP for 7 years; but that that's not the end of his volunteer activities. He is known in Neighborhood Watch as the "host with the most" when it comes to the Annual Night Out in August. He gathers at least 3 blocks of residents in the Miradors in Oaks North, hosts a catered dinner buffet, and delivers important and useful information to his neighbors regarding their safety and security.
Maury and his wife also deliver "Meals on Wheels" regularly and make sure to check on the welfare of the recipients. If that isn't enough, he is a member of the VFW and works at the Veterans' Hospital every Saturday.
Other 'Stars" have been given out recently by RSVP. One star is placed on the nametags for each year of service: Nametags with seven stars were given out to Merv Adams, Ben Dyas, Frank Kneebone, Don Lauffer, Dick Mears, Jack Peregoy, Ken Root and Fred Shaw. A new nametag with five stars was given to Jerry Goldstein; three stars to Pat Rucker and Bill Talcott; two stars to B.J. Curtis and Clint Henderson; and one star to Mary Herman.
"A Star is Born:" Training has been completed for the new RSVP speed-reading unit. This computerized unit is now recording the speed of all cars passing it in 12-inch high numbers. It's mounted on the back of a RSVP car and will enable drivers to see the posted speed and their speed. Sometimes they are a little bit different! RSVP records could show SDPD patrol officers where they may find a few speeders. RSVP feels they need two more of these speed-reading units, and they are looking for sponsors. Assistant Administrator Jim Artherton is in charge of the speed-reading operation and will be glad to answer your questions. 538-8146.
Now, McGruff the Crime Fighting Dog, has been a 'star' for years. The McGruff team - Merv Adams, Stan Gingold, Lola Bellinger, Bill Talcott and Jean Richmond have been helping McGruff "take a bite out of crime" and educate children to keep them safe. As a matter of record, almost 29,000 children have been helped by McGruff since mid-1994. Want McGruff to come visit your kids? At a party? At day care, school or church? Call the Police Storefront, 538-8146.
