CHEERS to Deb. My money and cards were stolen. I had no money for gas to get to work. I was at the bank reporting it and became upset.
Deb was talking to a bank employee and had heard me. When she left, she walked over and gave me $40. She said her family had experienced the same thing. I want to thank her for her caring and generosity.

CHEERS to all the volunteers at the Fort Wayne Childrens Zoo, especially the five girls who helped with our recent zoo trip. Hannah, Jessica, Lacie, Grace and Felicia were such sweethearts.
Their help was appreciated as 16 residents of Kingston Residence enjoyed a sunny day at the zoo. Thanks for bringing smiles to all.

CHEERS to all the volunteers and spectators who supported the Arcola National Truck & Tractor Pull on June 27-29 at Branning Park. Without the hundreds of volunteers and thousands of spectators, this event could not be the success it was. All proceeds benefit the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department, which is a completely volunteer organization. We greatly appreciate the regional support of this event which will celebrate 60 years in 2014.

CHEERS to the Three Rivers Arts Center For Kids in Fort Wayne, which participated in a Combat Child Abuse event in Kendallville last month. TRACKs mission is to use art to empower children, especially those who have been abused. Seeing an 8-year-old who suffers brain damage as a result of being shaken as a baby, paint the mural with the help of her mother was a highlight.
Cheers to all the kids and adults who participated in the painting, and especially Lowes on Lima Road for donating the paint and boards.
