Langhorne woman to walk ‘18 Miles for Dave’

Joan Zalot and David Walls met at Holy Family College (now University) in Northeast Philadelphia and graduated together in 1990. They’ve remained friends since then, and when Joan heard about Dave’s recent cancer diagnosis, she knew she had to find a way to help.

Long Beach Island is the 18-mile-long New Jersey barrier island where Joan and her family vacation every summer. Joan decided to challenge herself while helping her friend by collecting pledges and walking the entire length of the island, from Holgate at the south end, all the way to the iconic Barnegat Lighthouse.

Thus “18 Miles for Dave” came to be.

Toastmasters Club teaches communication and confidence

by Judi Biederman

It is one of life’s little puzzles: presentation skills are one of the most highly-desired competencies in today’s job market, yet the fear of public speaking is one of the most common human phobias. Luckily, help is at hand, often closer than you may think.

According to Newtown resident Karen Jones, vice president of membership for the Washington Crossing Club of Toastmasters International, this organization offers much more than its name implies. While it definitely can help people put together a great toast when that duty may be required, its deeper purpose is to promote communication, leadership skills and personal growth.

Family Service’s Helpline volunteer answers call and saves a Life

A college student recently called the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK), and one of Family Service Association of Bucks County’s volunteer listeners answered the phone. The caller told the listener that he had been thinking about suicide for a while now and, just the night before, he had sat on a bridge contemplating whether or not to jump off.

The caller said he had contacted the student health center to make a therapy appointment, but the earliest appointment he could get was a few weeks away. With the student’s permission, Family Service’s volunteer listener called the student health center and informed the staff of the caller’s thoughts of suicide and experience on the bridge. The student health center took this very seriously and requested that the caller come in immediately.
