As a twenty-something movie buff, constantly seeing new releases in theaters and getting lost in the seemingly infinite world of Netflix is my favorite way to pass the time. Whatever style, genre, language, subject matter... I'm interested. Discovering great movies and sharing my dramatically undying love of cinema with other classy folks is what I'm all about!

Donut Days activity Friday morning at the Rescue 33 garage

Spring temperatures may be what we’re feeling right now, but it’s that donut smell that permeates the air.
If you’ve lived or been around Chillicothe very long you know that March is known for Rescue 33 Donut Days. The squad counts on fundraisers, such as Donut Days, to keep the free service alive.
Spring temperatures may be what we’re feeling right now, but it’s that donut smell that permeates the air.
If you’ve lived or been around Chillicothe very long you know that March is known for Rescue 33 Donut Days. The squad counts on fundraisers, such as Donut Days, to keep the free service alive.
With our current economy and gas prices sky high, we all know that spells trouble for Rescue 33 — but the good news is we all can ‘rescue’ them.
No matter if Chillicotheans have funds available or have to dig into their pockets, generosity is rampant in town.
The motto should be: One small donut for Chillicothe ... one giant fundraiser for Rescue 33. (Full disclosure: I saw that statement on Facebook, and Jan Blank is one creative lady!)
Both Rescue 33 members and volunteers both young and old all gather to keep those donuts coming. This morning the larger orders for businesses went out — around 230 dozen in all.
Nick Hedden, son of Rescue 33 president Ron Hedden, said he thought it seemed like a record with all the pre-orders.
This morning the count was already at 3,000 dozen sold. Last year 6,600 dozen were sold the whole weekend. I hope that adds up to lots of dollars for the squad.
Did you know that in the last few weeks EMTs have ran back and forth on two different days with seven emergency calls in one day? In 2011 the squad almost beat its previous number of calls per year, but the record remains at 1,131 calls in 2010.
Don’t forget: if you can’t eat donuts, you can still drop off your donation to them at the garage or the Chillicothe Police Department. Or, mail them a check at Rescue 33, P.O. Box 204, Chillicothe, IL 61523.
If you need your donuts delivered, Marla Goard’s phone number has changed. Her correct phone number is 573-2321.
