Youth of the Month

Thumbs up to the two Brownstown Central High School seniors who recently were named Youth of the Month by the Brownstown Exchange Club. The honorees and the months for which they were recognized were Alexa Wheeles, December, and Rylee May, January.

Helping out

Thumbs up to those who participated in the 10th annual Mary H. Myers Breast Cancer Awareness Golf Outing at Shadowood Golf Course in Seymour. The event raised $14,340 for the Don and Dana Myers Cancer Center at Schneck Medical Center in Seymour. The donation was the largest from this event to date.

The gift of blood

Thumbs up to those who have donated blood over the past few months. The American Red Cross continues to experience an emergency blood shortage as severe winter weather has impacted the organization’s ability to rebuild the blood supply. The Red Cross is asking individuals to make appointments now to give blood or platelets by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting or calling 800-733-2767. 

Community servants

Thumbs up to the students of St. Ambrose Catholic School in Seymour. On Wednesday, they completed a variety of community service projects as part of Catholic Schools Week. Those projects included the kindergarten through second grade students making Valentine-themed items for nursing home residents and the third- and fourth-graders cleaning at Girls Inc. of Jackson County. The fifth-graders assisted at The Arc of Jackson County, the sixth-graders assisted at Sweet Cheeks Diaper Pantry and the seventh-graders assisted at the Jackson County Clothing Center.
