L-r: Judith Kennedy, Vicki Tones, Jerrie Cowan, Sally Errecart, Virginia Van Burkleo, Marybelle Gassaway and Maggie Keeler with a table full of Port Pals.

Members of Tehachapi Chapter #188, Order of the Eastern Star, recently got together and made 108 Port Pals. They are used for people who have ports for medical reasons and fit between the seat belt of the car and the port area to protect their chest and port from seat belt friction. There have been many distributed in the area already to Cancer Centers, City of Hope and doctors offices. Our goal is to find homes for at least 50 a month. If you are interested, or need a Port Pal, please contact Judith Kennedy, (661) 823-1907, or Vicki Tones, (661) 822-4106.
