The 2010-11 goal of the United Way of Adams County (UWAC) will be met soon.
That good news was imparted to approximately 40 people at a UWAC celebration event held Wednesday at the South Adams Senior Center in Berne by Ron Storey, president of the United Way board of directors.
Storey, who once headed the United Way in Burlington, Iowa, said any United Way drive cannot succeed "without the many volunteers who get out and do solicitation and, most of all, the people who are so giving to the United Way."
Adams is the 15th healthiest county in Indiana, according to a report compiled by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The report, released Wednesday by the Indiana State Department of Health, used a series of statistics as well as individual responses to a series of survey questions to determine the health ranking of all 92 Indiana counties.
