Hearts & darts

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

Kelly Truex, principal at Danville’s Garfield Elementary School, sends hearts “to Walmart for its generous donation. All students at Garfield will benefit from the extra supplies purchased with the $50 gift cards given to 20 teachers. It is so important children have the necessary supplies to be successful at school.

“Students and teachers can focus on learning when students are prepared.

The Danville Library Foundation Board of Directors, executive director Cathy Reardon and volunteer coordinator Millie Wilson send hearts “to everyone who assisted with the Fall Used Book Sale on Nov. 23.

“Thanks to your incredible dedication and support, the book sale was again a huge success.

“It is only through the generosity of volunteers and library staff that the foundation is able to offer our used book sales to the community. We are truly grateful to all who participated either through their volunteerism or their financial contributions.”

Pape Family Funeral Home sends hearts “to all of the participants and supporters of the Veterans Day ceremony on Nov. 11.

“All of the American Legion posts, the Marines, the VFW and the Korean War veterans all were well represented.

“We appreciate the work and effort put forth by all of you, continuously, and not just on Veterans Day.

Tobi Peck of Danville sends hearts “to my anonymous and generous benefactress. Thank you for helping me survive another month.”

J.M. Thomason of Williamsport, Ind., sends hearts to some local U.S. Postal Service employees.

“On the morning of Nov. 26, while waiting to make my purchase at the Danville Post Office, an elderly lady was trying to fill out her money orders for her bills when she noticed one of them was missing.

“Kelly L. Montgerard, a post office employee, noticed this and called Pam Zu HOne to assist this lady. She restored her confidence and all turned out well.

“God bless our postal employees. We are thankful for you and your service. I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving.”
