ONTONAGON — The Ontonagon-White Pine Rotary Club presented SONCO Ambulance with a check for $771 Wednesday as a result of the Rotary Club Log Race over the Labor Day weekend.

The money will purchase a Littmann electronic stethoscope and a Welch Suretemp electron thermometer for the ambulance.

According to Gina Linna, SONCO manager, the stethoscope offers improved quality and ease of use to help make a clear diagnosis. “It is a state-of- the-art sound sensor which provides a life-like, high-end cardiology stethoscope sound experience,” she said.

The electronic thermometer reduces the risk of cross-contamination with a removable probe and has last temperature recall.

Rotary president Janis Burgess said the club was pleased to be able to help provide the equipment and thanked the many log buyers who made the gift possible.
