Hearts to Elizabeth and Sean Redden, owners of Bob’s Tu Your Door Pizza, for their generous and delicious donation of made-to-order pizzas for our staff fundraising lunch at Pleasant Grove Elementary School. Hearts to the school families, as we were able to raise more than $1,600 through hat days, PJ days and a staff fundraising lunch to donate to Curesearch in the fight against childhood cancer. We support all families who have faced, or are currently battling, childhood cancer, but our hearts are for the family of Wesley Jaeger.

I would like some hearts for Mr. Darren Thompson and 15 or more of his fellow church members of the Franklin Community Church for their help in spreading the trail mulch on the trails at the new urban forest in Franklin. Their help was much appreciated, as was that of Meg Jones Goss who spent the time to mark off the trail route, and the parks department for their effort in preparing the trails for mulch. This is the first step in the tree planting of the flooded area on the south side of the lawn.
