CAN YOU BRING A DOLLAR TO OUR OPEN HOUSE TOMORROW? One of our many community partners is Northwest Indiana Habitat for Humanity, whose Chairman, former Crown Point Mayor Dan Klein, is fundraising to build a home specifically for a Northwest Indiana Military Veteran in need. Habitat is going to bring their "wall," a section of particle board that will be built into the actual home, and upon which well-wishers can write notes of encouragement and support to the Veteran. Habitat will also have a green hardhat they'll pass around in case anyone can support them financially and help defray the estimated $90,000 in costs to build the home. Help if you can! -Tony

ALWAYS SEEKING VOLUNTEERS-I THINK I FOUND A GOOD ONE! We're always on the lookout for volunteers to enhance our Activity Programs at Bickford of Crown Point. You're welcome to contact Marnie or I for more information if you have a talent you'd like to share. Last week, a young lady approached me, her name is Rachael Kwain; she's been a Girl Scout throughout her student years, and as a Senior Gold Project she is starting an "Adopt-a-Grandparent" program at Bickford. I'm excited about this, but I was even more excited to see her in the newspaper this weekend as "Student of the Month." Turns out the Girl Scouts are just the tip of Rachael's life of service: she is active in many programs and actually has written and performed an original song in defense of the unborn. Obviously she's a dynamic leader-in-development, and Bickford is happy to have her as part of our program. Thanks, Rachael!
