The Salem Area Van Endeavor (SAVE), under the management of the Courthouse Community Center, has welcomed a new driver to the program. Trip Sturgis, a Shushan, N.Y., resident, will share the driving responsibilities with Ken White. SAVE is an initiative offering free transportation to the grocery store each Tuesday and Thursday, available to any individual in the Salem area in need of transportation. On Tuesdays, Trip goes to the Hannaford in Greenwich, N.Y. On Thursdays, Ken makes the trip to Price Chopper in Granville, N.Y. Passengers are picked up at their home around 9 a.m.; assistance is provided if needed. Trip and Ken volunteer their time. A generous grant was recently received from the Washington County Home for Aged Women for daily expenses such as gas, maintenance and new tires, a great help, since SAVE is offered at no charge. Call 518-854-7053 for details.
