Extra efforts appreciated by ‘BluesFest’

To the employees of the administration building of the Vigo County School Corp.:

On Friday, Sept. 13, you were all asked to park in the parking garage instead of your usual parking lot. We would like to thank you, both personally and on behalf of the Blues at the Crossroads organization. We know this was an inconvenience for all of you.

Blues at the Crossroads is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization and every year we give the profits from the festival to a needy organization. Last year we were able to give our local chapter of the Red Cross, $5,000. This year we worked to help the Boys/Girls Club of Terre Haute. Many of the kids from the Boys/Girls Club submitted essays telling us what music means to them. The kids who wrote the best essays received a musical instrument and an entire year of lessons, all at no cost. We all know how important it is to get kids involved in something, anything that can keep them happy and out of trouble.  

So, again, thank you all for doing what you do and for your help by parking across the street. You are all part of a huge team that is helping these kids. Who knows, together, we may have saved a child’s life. Please know that you are appreciated.

— Cheryl Maners

Active help for a worthy cause

Cannon Inn and I would like to thank the Tribune-Star’s Susan Duncan, Sue Loughlin, Dianne Powell and Jim Avelis for the recent coverage of activities during National Assisted Living Week at Cannon Inn.

Our Operation Christmas Box project has partnered the tenants and staff in buying and making items for boxes. Genny Wilson has been a real blessing in helping us to actively reach out and help others.

If anyone would wish to donate toward this worthy cause, they can call Cannon Inn and ask for me. The phone number for Cannon Inn is 812-466-3102.
