What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

A local fund helping community mem- bers in time of need could become one of those causes for you. The Community Fund Drive is a collab- orative effort made by two local sorority groups, Preceptor Psi and Xi Alpha Nu. Preceptor Psi began helping the Baker Chamber of Commerce go door-to-door to collect funds to help people many years ago. The Chamber eventually asked Pre- ceptor Psi to take over. They solely held the responsibility for about 15 years. About five years ago, Xi Alpha Nu joined the funding efforts. A committee made up of members from both groups administers the funds. For several years the groups annually walked door-to-door to ask for donations. but this year did not due to lack of mem- bership. A booth was set up at the South- eastern Montana Health Fair to recvi‘e donations but not much was given. Last year, donations of S I 3,9(X) were col- lected and $12000 was distributed to com- munity members. So far this year. S8,750 has been distributed but only $4.562 has been collected. \We would like to tell the people of Fal- lon County we are putting this money out that we are collecting.\ said Barb Keller - ling, Xi Alpha Nu member. \We are almost depleting our account and are going to have to lessen the amount we give to peo- ple to keep the funds solvent. We don't want to deplete the fund when we still want to help.\ All Community Fund Drive donations collected are distributed back to commu- nity members to defray medical expenses or for other disastrous events. \It's a great thing for the community. It does help,\ Ketterling said. \We get a lot of positive feedback from people who re- ceive it.\ No matter the amount, you can make a difference, donations can be sent to Com- munity Fund Drive. PO Box 191, Plevna, MT 59344 or dropped off at the Bank of Baker anytime during the year. A collec- tion jar is also in place at the Bank of Baker.
