T shirts takent to orphanage that-is located in Haiti an STAFF REPORT The Rotary Club of Avalon has received a second matching Rotary District 5320 Simplified Grant to assist low-income com- munity members with the cost of boat transportation for medical or surgical services that are not available on the island. The Rotary grant is for $3000. The Rotary Club of Avalon pro- vides up to $1500 and that amount is matched by the Rotary District 5320, which covers Orange and Southern Los Angeles County. Last year, the Rotary also received this grant and it provided approxi- mately 43 round trip boat tickets to many appreciative community members. Rita Whitaker, past president of the Avalon Rotary Club submit- ted the grant application for the 3rd year and is extremely pleased that this grant has been approved. Community members, with a medical/surgical necessity on the mainland, will be screened by the social services and business office Burt Hodge: May 9, 1926 - Dec. 4, 2013 Burt Hodge was born in Hollywood California to parents Norman and Martha Hodge. He grew up in Beverly Hills. At age 17, he left Beverly Hills High School early to serve in the US Navy during WWlI. Anyone who knew Burt loved to hear his war- time stories and adventures aboard Armed Guard naval ships in the Asia Pacific. Burt received his Honorable Discharge from the United States Navy in March 1946. He returned home to Beverly Hills and worked at the Fox Wilshire Theater where he met the love of his life Peggy Rubsch. They were married on December 1, 1946 and raised three children, son Jim Hodge and daughters Terry Shearer and Susan Standring. Burt's fam- ily continues to thrive with two new Great grandchildren born in 2013. He cherished his family time with his seven grandchildren, eight great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. Burt was preceded in death by his loving wife of 63 years, Peggy and his daughter Terry. Burt worked in the family busi- ness, A-1 Autoworks in down- town Los Angeles for 20-plus years as General Manager. A-1 was started by Peggy's father in the 1920's as a blacksmith shop and transitioned into automotive towing and repair. Under Burts leadership they created one of the first big rig tow trucks capable of recovering overturned 18-wheel- ers that tumbled hundreds of feet down the hills of the Grapevine, Tehachapi and Cajon Pass road- ways. Since the minute he started driving, he had been a "car guy" Hadge, Page 11 Harbour Actvity From page 7 arriving in Avalon, this culprit even came with a bandit mask along with their fur coat. The rac- coon, being an unwelcome visi- tor, avoided apprehension and had to remain on board as the boat departed.
