Hearts and darts

DANVILLE — Here are some of the good things readers noticed around the area recently:

Students and staff at Kenneth D. Bailey Academy will have their first rummage sale beginning at 8 a.m. today at the academy, the former Holy Family School on East Main Street.

“We would like to give a special thanks to all of the teachers who have donated items, one special teaching assistant, Tina Miller, who volunteered to pick up donations from the Rock Church, Deanne Clapp who has provided a lot of great things, members of the community who have dropped off items and our school custodians who have been a huge help. We have our stage full of items for our rummage sale.”

Members, teachers and parents of the Bismarck-Henning High School bands and choir send hearts to all “of our generous friends.

“The Miniature Golf Tournament at Illini Skateland would not have been a success without your wonderful donations. So many hearts to: Illini Skateland, Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center, Ribbe Trucking, Danville Polyclinic, Ray’s Pest & Termite Control, Andi Mae’s Ice Cream, Village Mall County Market, TLC Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning, Downing Construction, Apparel Unlimited, Danville Area Community College, Sew What of Covington, Owens Excavating, BSN/Kessler Sports and Rent-A-Center. Thank you very much for sponsoring the event.

“Many hearts also to the YMCA, The Beef House, Red Lobster, Danville Paper & Supply, Danville Consolidated Credit Union, First Illinois Credit Union, Family Video, Charlotte’s, Schroeder’s Drive-In, Back Door Pizza, Carmack Car Capitol, Turtle Run, Danville Civic Center, Cellular One, Domino’s Pizza, Penn Station, GLIK’S, Olive Garden, Hooters, Starbucks, Dairy Queen on East Main Street in Danville, Custard Cup, Garfield’s Restaurant, B&J Music, Arby’s, Alexander’s in Champaign, Mike’s Grill, McDonald’s restaurants, Lee’s Famous Recipe, Jocko’s Pizza, Montana Mike’s, Wright’s Heating & Cooling, Watson’s Tire, Big R of Danville, Big R Rentals, Berry’s Garden, Beginnings Photography and Omeika.

“A special thank you to some extraordinary people: Candy Edwards and her family for assisting in collecting and organizing the prizes and helping set up and take down tables and tents; Shirley and Matt Steinbaugh for acquiring, transporting and setting up and taking down tables, chairs and tents — for making brownies, cookies, cupcakes, etc., for the bake safe, for manning the bake sale table; and to Marie Huffman who donated and prepared most of the food served to the volunteers, helped set up and take down the event, and who also was one of the sponsors.

“Thank you to the newspapers and radio stations for getting the word out there.

“Lastly, a huge thank-you to all of the volunteers and participants who were mostly the volunteers. Without you, this event would not have been possible. We hope to be able to count on your generosity of resources, talent and time in the future for other events.”
