As we say goodbye to the wonderful weekend of Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, amazing football and Black Friday shopping, we look forward to sparkling and festive holiday celebrations.  

Arthur C. Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute, contributed an interesting opinion article to The Wall Street Journal titled Handsome is as Handsome Gives » about the benefits and endorphins brought about by giving and helping.

Thank you to the many volunteers who helped with the Day of Action Family Volunteer Fair on June 21! It was a beautiful summer day for community members to drop by and learn the many opportunities to help in our community. So many children enjoyed making cards for soldiers in Afghanistan thanks to Melissa Seibert of Red Cross Stark County. Children also enjoyed a visit with The Stock Pile, the Arc of Stark County, Catholic Charities, Meals on Wheels, Girls on the Run and "Feleap the Frog" from Stark Parks.
