Hearts & darts

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

Richard Roth of Danville sends hearts “to the many individuals and groups that helped us put on our collector car cruise from the Cheeseburgers and Fun event at Kennekuk to the Danville VA medical center.

“Thanks to the participants who made their cars available for viewing at the VA and to Illinois State Police, the Vermilion County Sheriff as well as the Danville Police and Auxiliary Police who were very helpful providing traffic control.

“Special thanks to the VA staff for providing parking and getting the veterans out to see us. And of course thanks to the veterans for their service to our country.”

Lori Lyons and Terri Hoskins, co-directors of the AMBUCS Summer Camp, send hearts to many who helped with their efforts.

“As summer winds to a close and fall is quickly approaching, we would like to send hearts to the Juliuis Hegler Foundation for the geberous donation to AMBUCS Summer Camp.

“Summer Camp is two one-week sessions that allow the special needs children of Vermilion County the opportunity to enjoy life.

“Hearts also to the Gao Grotto and its members for the use of the clubhouse as well as their boats; to Illini Skateland; Lincoln Lanes; Danville Tennis Center; Garfield Park Poll; ATA Acaemy; City of Danville; Danville Dans; Chuckie Cheese’ McDonald’s; Subway; Lee’s Famous Recipe; Papa Murphy’s Pizza; County Market; Walmart; Royal Donut; First Student Transportation; the Boys & Girls Club for the use of its facilities for our overnight sleepover; and to the Danville Police Department for the extra patrols.

“Our thank-you list would not be complete without mentioning our counselors. They are awesome men and women who help make Summer Camp a success.

“Have a great school year. We’re looking forward to Summer Camp 2014!”
