Generosity in Abundance

During this week leading up to Thanksgiving, we have experienced the generous and giving nature of folks firsthand!

The Helping Our Heroes program has been blessed with a generous donation by Ann and Jim McLelland, of the Mack Companies.

We have also received support from the Family Christian store, in Hodgkins, Illinois; they have placed a box for collecting items for our soldier care package program.

HAYS Cleaning is collecting items for soldier care packages through November 30, 2011.

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month…

“On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as “the Great War.” Commemorated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the United States in 1938. In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars.”
