Perinton and Macedon Ambulance campa&es also assisted. Lisa was taken by Perinton Ambulance to Strong Memorial Hos- pital.

This class is a good way to intro- duce people to me and to get weight programs going out here,\ said Vicky. \It is not a crash diet. It is a sensible approach to dieting f~r~people wishing to-lose between 5 and 30 pounds. I don't think quick weight loss is a good weight loss. I emphasize low fat foods, moderate protein and exercise. Women on the program would normally have between 1000 and 1200 calories per day, and men 1500 to 1600 per day,\ she explained.

Pope Family Reseltles in Walworth Eight months after a fire that destroyed their home and devastated their lives (four days before Christmas 1989), the Pope family of Walworth are secure in their new home on the site of the one they lost: \We loved that house, it needed work, but we loved it,\ said Beth Pope of the home she and husband Doug purchased lasf~une at 3574 Main Street in Walworth. \The ironic thing is that we moved in here just 2 weeks short of the day we originally moved into our first one,\ Beth reported. The chain of events that led from last ~hristmas ti1 now are of interest to many readers of the TIMES, for they played an intregalapart in the lives of the Pope family that Christmas. A fund was set up for monetary donations, and a special Christmas tree was erected where Walworth and surrounding area resi- de,qts could bring toys, clothing, blan- kep. etc. for the family. ' .' .I ' . . , It was a very hard Christmas, Beth remembers, but it was filled with many caring people. \I don't know how we would have gotten through it without all the help. I'd still like to thank everyone for caring,\ she said. After the December 2 1 st fire, Beth, Doug and their two children Collin (then 7 months) and Tristin (then 3 years old) went to stay with Beth's parents Nancy and Bob Flick of Marion. . On January 13th, the family located a house for rent in-Penfield. A relative of the owner was handling the sale of the house at the time, b'ut Beth said she was not aware that a sale was pending. \Two days after we moved in, a man pulled in the driveway and said 'Hi, I own this house now.' \I was shocked. We already had the rugs pulled out from under us once. We had really struggled to find a place, and , it wasn't really a convenient spot since it was 14 miles from my mother's and she was watching the kids, so I could go back to schoo1,\;emembered Beth. \But Continued on Page 6, . . -This is how Doug and Beth Pope 's home on Main Street in Walworth looked while Walworth Fire Department personnel fought the blaze -that enguIfed their home four days before Christmas last year.
