Three local women are letting their feet do their charitable talking =
when they walk this weekend in the 12th annual Wilderness Heals Pledge =
Hike to benefit the Elizabeth Stone House in Boston. Gina Emmanuel of =
Dedham, Lucy Meadows of Milton, and Rosa Dominguez of Brockton are among =
more than 75 women set to hike over three days through the rugged =
terrain of the White Mountains in New Hampshire in one of New England's =
most challenging all-female events. Each hiker pledges to raise at least =
$1,200.

The hike is setting its sights on raising $125,000 for the Elizabeth =
Stone House, a non profit agency that provides assistance to victims of =
domestic violence. In the 11 years of the hike, more than $1 million has =
been donated.
"I work for a social-service agency and help run a domestic violence =
team as part of my job, so there's a connection here for me," Emmanuel =
said, "and I did an internship at the Stone House when I was at Wheelock =
College." This will be her third outing in six years and this year she =
has enlisted her sister from Rhode Island.

Meadows, project director at Boston Health Care and Research Training =
Institute in Boston, was going to do the hike last year but had to back =
out when she sprained her ankle -- in her kitchen.

"I still raised the money, though," she said with a laugh. "This year, =
I'm looking forward to the real hike.

"It's an amazing experience when you have all these women from all walks =
of life, survivors of domestic violence, people in social work, people =
who just want to contribute. There's a great variety."

Hikers have four routes from which to choose, three of which include =
overnight stays in Appalachian Mountain Club huts.

To donate to any participant's hike, visit elizabethstone.org and click =
on "How You Can Help."

A BLIMP'S EYE VIEW: Seven-year-old Payton Randall of Plymouth got a ride =
hardly anyone gets -- in the Goodyear blimp, courtesy of a donation from =
Sullivan Tire through the Jimmy Fund. The little girl is being treated =
for leukemia at the Jimmy Fund Clinic at the Dana-Farber Cancer =
Institute in Boston. Going along for the ride with the girl were her =
parents, Rob and Heather Randall, and her brother, Robbie. They flew out =
of Plymouth Airport, where the blimp visited as part of a sales event at =
all Sullivan Tires locations.

GOLF RAISES BIG BUCKS: Two recent golf tourneys raised nearly $250,000 =
for two causes. The 2007 South Shore Hospital Golf Tournament at The =
Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, to benefit the Weymouth hospital's new =
cardiovascular center, raked in approximately $215,000 through the =
participation of some 300 golfers. More than 120 golfers at Easton =
Country Club raised more than $10,000 at the 23d annual MainSpring House =
Charity Open Golf Tournament to benefit the MainSpring Coalition for the =
Homeless in Brockton, an event sponsored since its beginning by the =
Norwell-based Jack Conway & Co. Realtors.

GRADS GET A LITTLE HELP: Seventeen recent graduates of South Shore high =
schools have been presented with the 2007 South Shore Savings Bank =
Citizenship Awards, each worth $500. They are: Andrew Bridson and Karen =
Torino, both of Hanover; Joshua Caldwell and Kellie O'Hara, both of =
Plymouth; John Cole, Meghan Mahoney and Joseph McHugh, all of Braintree; =
Kimberly Effner, William Gardner, Kyle Edward Gill, Ryan MacQueen and =
Maura Sullivan, all of Weymouth; Courtney Harrison of Pembroke; Kyle =
Horton of East Bridgewater; Peter Merzbacher of Norwell; Stephanie =
Palmatier of Quincy; and Connie Tang of Stoughton.

BIRTHDAY GIRL, 100, CREDITS TEA: Elizabeth Estey, a participant in the =
New England Sinai Adult Day Health Care Program at the Striar Jewish =
Community Center in Stoughton, celebrated her 100th birthday at a party =
thrown by the center's workers in her honor. One of the gifts from the =
staff included a tea mug, for which she was especially appreciative =
because one of the keys to her longevity, she said, is "a lot of tea. . =
. and I never ate my vegetables."

BUSINESS BRIEFS: The Front Street Book Shop on Scituate Harbor is in new =
hands, now owned by Peg Patten, who had worked at the store for several =
years. She takes over from Pam Giovannini, who had the store for 20 =
years.

Jennifer Carrington of Stoughton has been named to the residential =
mortgage team at Harbor One Credit Union in Brockton. She is a coach for =
the Stoughton Stoyac basketball and softball teams and a member of the =
Dawe School Parent-Teacher Organization.

Jason McLaughlin of Quincy has joined the Century 21 Annex Realty office =
in Quincy as a sales associate. His brother, Richard McLaughlin, also =
works out of the Quincy office.

The Easton Chamber of Commerce has donated $1,000 to the Easton Food =
Pantry with proceeds from its "Taste of Easton" fund-raising event. The =
Easton Food Pantry was launched 18 years ago in the basement of Town =
Hall by Ken and Mary Jane Wood, and now serves nearly three dozen =
families. Donations may be made by calling 508-230-0670.
