Hearts to the Greenwood Community Center and its staff. My three sons have benefited from the programs they offer for years, and I appreciate the adult exercise classes and facility. But I am especially impressed with the employees. They have welcomed my son, Riley New, with open arms and have been such an encouragement to him and a help to me as I try to help Riley become more physically and socially active.
A very special thank-you to all the businesses and residents of Franklin and Johnson County whose enthusiastic support has once again made our Lions Club Spring Fish Fry a success. Thanks go to our co-workers of the Delta Theta Tau Sorority, the city of Franklin, Lowe’s, Swartz Funeral Home, Franklin Skate Club, First Financial Bank and the First Presbyterian Church and their youth group. We also want to thank Firehouse Subs for their generous donation of sandwich wrappers. A special thanks goes to all the Franklin Lions and their families who gave so generously of countless hours and energies.

Bargersville parks commission thanks the scouts, parents and leadership of Boy Scout Troop 227 for their dedication and work beautifying Carl & Anita Windisch Memorial Park on May 4. Their work was in honor of William Torrance, who created the large flower garden as an Eagle Scout project. Locke Trucking played a large part by transporting three loads of mulch from McCarty Mulch and Stone. Thanks Troop 227 for helping make Bargersville beautiful.

When making my annual spring trek back to the Featherngill-Forsyth Cemetery, what a pleasant surprise to find flags already in place. Whoever you are, on behalf of the two Civil War soldiers resting there, thank you for your patriotic heart and may God continue to bless America.
For all the people who felt a special tug at the heart while reading Lori Borgman’s Memorial tribute in the Daily Journal, I want to thank her for her reminder concerning what “Decoration Day” is really all about. Let us never forget that our freedom has its price.
A dart for the gentleman who, knowing our situation with our daughter being in the hospital and a day of storms, plus getting the wrong truck, would not allow me two days to get reorganized so that the possessions could be taken out of his rental house. Most was already done and just some smaller items were left, plus we had to find a truck to rent since the college kids had them all tied up. We only needed two more days and he had not told us that he had re-rented the house. Besides, we left it move-in ready.
