Hearts & darts

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

Lois Eakle, of Sidell, sends hearts to “whoever found my credit card and turned it in. On Wednesday, May 7, I was getting flowers outside at Big R and I dropped my card. I called on Thursday morning, and it had been turned into the office. Blessings to that honest person.

“Thanks to you and may God bless you for your kindness.”

Suse Townsley, of Danville, sends hearts to the staff of CRIS Rural Mass Transit.

“Thank you CRIS bus. I want to thank the CRIS organization headed by Kathy Cooksey and all of her employees — people like Heather, Vickie, Tracy and all the wonderful drivers.

“There have been times when my doctor wants me in the morning. He often calls from the office saying he wants to see me, and I call CRIS. And even though they’re booked solid, they find a way to fit me in. And the drivers and the people in the office are all so nice and courteous.

“Again I say ‘thank you all’ for your wonderful service and treasured friendships.”

The STEP Program of Vermilion County sends hearts to “the following businesses for their support of the junior and senior students from our Vermilion County high schools. Your mentoring and training of these students has given them invaluable life and employment skills for their transition after high school.

“Thank you Bismarck Elementary, custodial; Danville Burger King; Charlotte’s; Concept School of Cosmetology; County Market North Danville, Town Centre and Tilton; CVS in Danville, Hoopeston and Westville; Danville High School, cafeteria and custodial; Danville Public Library; East Park Elementary School; Georgetown-Ridge Farm High School, cafeteria and custodial; Georgetown Pallet Factory; Hoopeston High School, custodial; Jamaica High School, custodial; Liberty Estates; McDonald’s in Georgetown and Hoopeston; MS Salon; Norton’s Machine Shop; Pine Crest Elementary, library; Potomac Grade School, custodial; Ray’s Pest Control; Southwest Elementary School; Department of Veterans Affairs; Vermilion County Animal Shelter; Walgreens in Danville; Wendy’s Restaurant; Westville IGA; and Yard Store in Georgetown.”
