Lending a hand

Reader Mary Kriesch sent in this photo of Levi Easter and Ryan Warder, from the Hickory Grove Fire Department, helping her husband, Karl Kriesch Sr., put the fascia on their home. She said the young men lent a very helpful hand, so the couple could get the job done.

A cup of cheer

Chandler Reiman (and his folks Dana and Ryan) want to thank everyone who came out to their "Cup of Hot Chocolate Stand" or who donated online.

Dana said with everyone's help, Chandler has raised a total of $787.25 to benefit St. Jude's Research Hospital.

Miss going to the stand last weekend? Want to still help? This year, Reiman set up an online portal at http://bit.ly/chandler18 for donations. He can also be contacted at 918-314-4522.
