... to the Jeffersonville Art Alliance, JAM (Jeffersonville Art Movement) group for the mask display at Glossbrenner Garden on Spring Street at Chestnut.

The masks are beautiful, and they add color and style to the wall of the garden. Many positive comments have been heard and the artwork is attracting quite a bit of attention. They will be on display through the month of October.

Sponsors for this JAM session were Greater Clark County Schools, City Pride, Taste of Jeffersonville, Kovert Hawkins, Sherwin Williams, Preston Art Gallery and JHS Welding.

... to Personal Counseling Services and its Event Chair Deniece Lloyd for recently hosting a wonderful celebration of the services PCS provides to our community.

The mission of PCS is to offer assistance to all persons desiring to achieve wellness of body, mind and spirit. Doug Drake and his staff accomplishes this very well. Cheers to all who believe in and support the PCS mission.

Those who attended the celebration heard Bellarmine University men’s basketball coach Scott Davenport’s inspirational speech about gratitude. The American Sign Language motion of communicating gratitude is to place one’s hands to the chin and then extend them outward. Consider adding this universal motion to the many ways you can show gratitude for living in the caring community of Southern Indiana.

READER CHEERS

... to the administration at St. Catherine’s Regional Medical Center in Clarksville who came to our rescue over the past weekend.

Pack Palooza, a regional Cub Scout event, was held near Charlestown at the Tunnel Mill Scout Reservation and offered a full day of activities Saturday including everything from National Guard rock wall climbing to leatherwork to a tug-of-war and more.

The event drew more than 425 Cub Scouts and parents. The night before the big day of activities, the medical/first aid officer had to cancel, leaving us without adequate medical support for the day. St. Catherine’s hospital administration worked diligently all day Friday to locate and provide a nurse, Lisa Keown, who could be on site all day, offering first aid to our Scouts.

We are proud that St. Catherine’s is our hospital for the event and thankful they were able to help us out at such short notice.
