As the fires in Southern California die down, sending exhausted crews of area firefighters back home, local volunteers continue assisting fire crews and are expected to do so through Friday. Local Community Emergency Response Team volunteers manned their usual stations over the weekend, relaying messages between agencies, making meals, and shuttling supplies and people around Irvine Regional Park in Orange. Their numbers dwindled to about half of what they were last week, but the aids are still needed as tired crews return to the park daily for respites.

GARDEN GROVE — Sarah Bana had to fight a little temptation in order to leave her UC Irvine dorm room on Monday morning. As a member of the campus' Circle K International club, she had committed to driving to the Orange County Food Bank to package goods for needy families — and she would be among dozens of UCI students devoting Martin Luther King Jr. Day to service. It was a chilly morning, however, and Bana — who used to celebrate King Day by sleeping in — had to put in a little effort to rouse herself.

AVIVA GOELMAN Most of us are well acquainted with the old spring saying: "Sweet April showers do spring May flowers." That the Costa Mesa Senior Center continues to bloom as an invaluable home of services and relationships for our community's seniors is directly due to our own "sweet April showers." They are our volunteers. What better time than Spring, the season of new life and renewal, to acknowledge the extraordinary service of the volunteers who serve the senior center.
