Four additions have been made to our Life that Matters series for the month of October 2014! This month we profile a fashionista, a big-hearted woman, a family man, a nurse, and an entrepreneur in the making.
On November 6th and 7th 15% of all purchases, carry out or dine in, made at Bob Evans in Chesterton or Valparaiso with a flier present will go directly to the Career Center. This money will mainly be used to replace the Career Centers old parer towel dispensers. Healthy hand washing is extremely important especially during the cold season. The remainder of the money will go to lowering the cost per student for the Health Occupation Students of America spring leadership conference. Leadership conferences are huge scholarship opportunities and promote self esteem and help unlock unknown potential.
The Valparaiso Noon Kiwanis Club would like to invite veterans, active duty personnel, and Kiwanians from throughout Indiana to our Special Veterans Day celebration to be held this year on November 5 at the Strongbow Banquet Center in Valparaiso. Our speakers will be selected WWII veterans. Meal service begins at 11:15. The program begins at noon. Lunch is a full turkey buffet for only $10. All attending veterans will receive special recognition at the event.
The Red Carpet Lounge in Portage recently held their 13th Annual Car Show and presented a check for $2,000 in proceeds to support the Visiting Nurse Association hospice program. Sheila Raye, owner of the lounge says they selected VNA Hospice as the recipient for the third year in a row because it seems so many of their customers have been touched by hospice. Raye’s own mother was a VNA hospice patient 11 years ago.
