  • Many supporters made after-prom event a success

    The Tell City After Prom Committee would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for their generous contributions to the 2015 Tell City High School After Prom.

  • VFW members grateful for support of Buddy Poppy sales

    Members of The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2939 and ladies and men’s auxiliaries wish to thank the Perry County community for supporting the 2015 Buddy Poppy program.

    The money received remains in our community to benefit disabled and in-need veterans and widows of deceased veterans in Perry County.

    Also, I’d like to thank the Perry County News for advertising our events and Noble’s IGA and Wal-Mart stores for allowing us to distribute our Buddy Poppies in front of their stores.

  • Poppies honor fallen veterans

     “And now the Torch and Poppy Red, we wear in honor of our dead. Fear not that ye have died for naught; We’ll teach the lesson that ye wrought in Flanders Fields.”

     

    From Moina Michael’s poem “We Shall Keep the Faith”

    The red poppy is the American Legion official memorial flower. It reminds us of our fallen heroes while supporting our living veterans. Buy a poppy.

    During a month in which we celebrate Mother’s Day, families formed through adoption are more common in Indiana compared with other states.

    According to the National Council for Adoption, Indiana has the nation’s fourth highest rate of adoption per live births, the ninth highest rate of adoption per nonmarital births, and the eleventh highest rate of adoption per 100,000 adults.

  • Mother’s Day run-walk another big success

    We want to thank everyone who helped make the Run for Your Mother 5K Fun Run-walk on Mother’s Day such a huge success. 

    We had 239 people registered – from individuals to entire families, people of all ages were running and walking in honor of their moms. It was a wonderful day!

  • Hospital auxiliary appreciates VFW’s help

    Members of Perry County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary would like to thank the Winchell Vogel Post 2939 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars for the use of their facility for our yard sale during Dogwood Fest.

    We want to thank members of the community who also supported this fundraiser for our organization. We raised over $575 from the yard sale.

  • Sinning under the sun

    Portions of my face, especially the back of my neck and my ears, were peeling last week, the result of a careless few hours in the sun.

    I felt like quite the hypocrite since I regularly preach sun awareness and skin-cancer prevention,

    I applied sunscreen twice during my time under a hot May sun. But I sweat a lot and the protection melted during the day.

  • Take time to observe the spirit of Memorial Day

    Memorial Day is approaching and we hope Perry Countians will commit a portion of the upcoming long weekend to recalling the heroism of the men and women who gave their lives in service to our land.

    Unfortunately, Memorial Day risks being crowded out by so many other activities: graduations, vacations, even auto racing. We know the first summer holiday is a busy time for everyone, but we encourage individuals and families to honor fallen and living veterans.
