Hearts & Darts – July 4


Hearts to everyone who attended White River Township Fire Department’s 24th Annual Strawberry Festival on June 10 and 11. It is always such a pleasure for the WRTFD staff and crews to connect one-on-one with people we serve. Thanks to all our sponsors who donated goods and services, and a special thank-you to our many tireless volunteers who helped with our activities and strawberry line. We are blessed to have such supportive community who understands the importance of public safety. As we grow with the Center Grove community, it is, as always, a pleasure serving and protecting each and every one of you.

The Interchurch Food Pantry of Johnson County gives a huge heart to Wanda Long on her 25th anniversary of volunteering at our pantry. We celebrated her dedication with a surprise party for her to thank her for her many years of service and many more yet to come. She began volunteering with us immediately after retiring from teaching and has been a devoted, faithful volunteer helping so many in our community for 25 years. Thank you Wanda.
