LOWELL | The Lowell GFWC-IFC Woman’s Club held an informative session with Lowell Fire Chief Clint Gorball at its monthly meeting Feb. 22. The club’s theme for the month was heart health.

An information packet provided to members included brochures on the signs of a heart attack, signs of a stroke and steps that can be taken while awaiting the arrival of an ambulance. Club members had questions for Gorball, who responded in layman's terms to help the members learn lifesaving information.

Gorball is in his second, two-year term as fire chief and is also a full-time firefighter paramedic with the Valparaiso Fire District. He lives in Lowell, where his father and grandfather are credited with founding and improving local EMT services.

Club members were reminded of several upcoming volunteer opportunities. The club will donate Easter baskets to the Lowell Parks and Recreation Department for Lowell’s annual Easter Egg Hunt, and is seeking donations for its March “Pot ‘O Gold” raffle drawing March 17.

The club’s second Bunco Party will be held at 7 p.m. March 14 at the Cedar Creek Foundation building, 151 N. Fremont St., Lowell. Admission is $5, or $4 for those who donate at least two nonperishable food items.

On April 21, Lake County GFWC/IFC Federation President Sandra Cortelloni will lead the annual Lake County convention at Sherwood Golf Club in Schererville.
