Letter: Volunteers created a memorable prom

On behalf of the special needs high school students and adults who attended the May 22 prom at Bethany Christian Church, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the many people whose efforts made this event possible.

First, I would like to thank children’s pastor, Tisha Schultz, who assembled an amazing team of talented volunteers who did everything from decorate, prepare food, serve, host, and clean up afterward. These volunteers included: Debi and Gil Morris, Valerie and Ted Mitchener, Mica and Matt Riedner (and the Blessings Class), and Brian and Jana Silvey. Thanks also to Blair Chaplin for his talented photography of this magical evening “Under the Sea.” Matthew Bradfield provided the sound system and music, Alex Baker provided free hairstyles, and Adrienne Frazier created picture frame party favors.

Thanks to volunteers Kelly and Doug Novotney, Rich Kelley, Marye Estes, Deborah Smith, and Angie McCartney. This evening wouldn’t have been possible without the support of each and every one of you. Again a very special thanks to Bethany Christian for opening your hearts to this wonderful ministry.

If you know an adult with a disability who would enjoy participating in monthly social events, or if you would like to receive emailed copies of the prom photos, please contact lbaker@acsc.net.

  • Viewpoint: Veterans' stories of patriotism, loyalty are uplifting As a professor at Ivy Tech Community College, I continually see very diverse backgrounds of our students. This semester has been especially satisfying in that the class, Fundamentals of Public Speaking, has a myriad of circumstances and lifestyles. I have been fortunate to have three veterans in my class who have served in the Armed Services.

  • Letter: U.S. should take care of its own children first American citizens are the most caring and giving people anywhere in the world. This said, we should worry about our own children's futures first instead of children coming here illegally.

  • Letter: Quality of water in Killbuck is residents' concern On April 9, in The Herald Bulletin, in a front page article by Zach Osowski, I read about the proposed reservoir in our area. State Sen. Doug Eckert mentioned the future need for water in the Indianapolis area.

  • Letter: Columnist's words are mean-spirited Cal Thomas's July 6 column, "Arrogant president harming the nation," exhibits his usual partisanship.

  • Letter: City beautification ignores other areas I read in the paper where they are going to start work on their great roundabout. What a waste, they are spending millions on the south side for the great gateway to Anderson and all the while the rest of Anderson is ignored.

  • Letter: Poll shows priorities are backward Your recent polling question about schools providing free food for children tells us society has its priorities backwards. The conservatives want low taxes. 53 percent said no to feeding the kids.

  • Letter: Grandson being punished for ISTEP score

    I am a very upset grandparent. My grandson is being punished for having a bad language arts ISTEP score. Not only will they not let him take band, they have taken him out of the honors math that he was supposed to be in.

  • Letter: Mounds Lake will do more harm than good How pathetic that promoters of the Mounds Lake Reservoir and dam project are so uncaring of the homes and businesses in the area proposed.
