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.

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