“The family of Clarence Peck would like to thank our family and friends for their kindness and help at the time of his recent passing on Dec. 29. We express gratitude to the Rev. K.C. Denhing of St. James Lutheran Church, the Rev. Marvin Hinkle, the Ladies Guild at St. James for our lovely family meal, Ann Hansen for her music and the congregation for all their support during this time.
“A heartfelt thanks to Fisher Funeral Chapel and to Mark Strong and the Local 47 Firefighters for their participation in the service and the ‘Last Alarm’ as we passed Central Fire Station. Also to all who called, visited, sent cards, flowers and memorial gifts in our time of need. We appreciate all who helped in any way, your thoughtfulness will not be forgotten.”
Proud of our community
The Pharos-Tribune sends this Rose to those who showed support for cancer victim at basketball game:
Staff in the newsroom listened intently as a letter received earlier this week from Logansport’s Jinner Richason was read aloud. She wrote to tell us about how proud he was to watch the community’s outpouring of support at a Lewis Cass vs. Northwestern varsity basketball game. A man stood before the crowd gathered at the game to tell the plight of a mother fighting cancer without the backing of her insurance company. She told us how the crowd was quick to dig in their pockets and more than $3,200 was collected on the spot to help the family.
Reading the letter, we shared in Richason’s pride for the community and thank them for making a difference in not only the life of the woman affected, but everyone gathered in that gymnasium.
Foundation getting everyone involved
The Pharos-Tribune sends this Rose to the Cass County Community Foundation for its effort to focus on smaller communities:
We applaud Cass County Community Foundation’s desire to keep the needs of the county’s smaller communities in its sights. And organizers are well on their way, holding their first public meeting in Walton on Wednesday evening. It was the first of its kind in the organization’s 25-year history.
The Walton community seemed to appreciate the gesture, turning out 60 residents to the meeting to discuss what was wanted for the town. The meeting was made even sweeter as the foundation promised more than $1,200 for a local grant for the residents who made the effort to get involved.
Thanks to all who are playing an active role in making a brighter future for Walton.
