Buckets of blessings to Paul Ross, Jack and Marilyn Perrin, Amanda McCauslin and the awesome New Whiteland public works employees who helped spread yards and yards of mulch at Proctor Memorial Park. “Many hands make light work:” Your dedication to this veterans park is greatly appreciated.
Bunches and bunches of hearts to: Kathy Vest, Maggie Caudill and Leesa Friedlander, for all their help in selling chances on the quilt for Relay for Life and to all the people who gave so generously. Hopefully one day they will find a cure. Thanks again; you are the best.

Hearts to everyone who helped with and participated in our Day of Play event in Province Park on June 14. It is so much fun to watch our great community come together. Being a Kaboom’s “Playful City USA” is an honor we are proud of.

Heartfelt thanks to Mark Trina and Blast Masters for making your vision a reality and placing the Hoosier Heroes Memorial Wall in our Memorial Park. Mark is a veteran of Desert Storm and served proudly in the U.S. Navy. Like so many of our beloved veterans, he just can’t stop giving.
Thank you to the men who labored in the hot sun all day to construct the Hoosier Heroes Memorial Wall. It is an honor and a privilege to have it displayed in our park. It is a wonderful tribute to all of the Hoosiers heroes, our Indiana military members who have paid the price for freedom by sacrificing their lives while serving since the tragic events on Sept. 11.
A very big thank you to Richard Goss and Meg Jones from Richard’s Kitchen for the perfect location for our girls’ graduation open house. You both have been so nice to our kids over the years, and we want you to know how much we appreciate it — not to mention the best food in town.

Shame on the person that came all the way up to our garage after our yard sale was over and stole my daughter’s two prom dresses. She not only paid for those on her own but needed the money to help pay her tuition and books at Purdue this fall. She works year-round even while carrying 22 hours of classes to pay her own way through college. To top it all off, she was in the house, so you don’t know how close you came to getting caught. I hope those dresses bring you nothing but bad luck and misfortune. The orange halter top one covered in sequins is a one of a kind, and we will be looking for it.
Many darts to the young lady in the black Ford Escape that hit me with her car while I was running at about 3:30 p.m. June 14 at the intersection of U.S. 31 and Orchard Lane. You saw me and know you hit me and knocked me down on 31 but you left me lying there injured. You should have more concern that to hit me and run away. Also, a heart-felt thank you to the gentleman not involved who stopped to check on me after he saw your car hit me. I appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness.
