Sugar Grove Life
Hessel Valley Lutheran Church in Chandlers Valley is having a Benefit Spaghetti Dinner on Thursday, Sept. 29 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. to benefit a local Sugar Grove family.
Sylar Moore, son of Shaa and Jamie Moore, was born July 24, 2016 six weeks early with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia (a hole in his diaphragm.) This condition results in organs that should be below the diaphragm above the diaphragm, crowding and in some cases prohibiting organ growth. Sylar will need to spend months in the neonatal intensive care unit to correct the diaphragmatic hernia and treat other conditions caused by it including but not limited to respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension and anasarca (extreme generalized edema, a medical condition characterized by widespread swelling of the skin due to effusion of fluid into the extracellular space.)
All proceeds from the dinner will help cover medical costs associated with Sylar’s treatment at Pittsburgh Children’s Hospital. The cost of dinner is a donation. Take-outs will also be available.
Drive For Your School
Thank you to all those took the wheel to help our school. If you got behind the wheel of a new Ford vehicle and took a test drive at EMHS the Ford Motor Company last Friday, you helped us raise funds.
For each test drive, Ford Motor Company made a donation to Ike Pride. Ike Pride is an organization that funds many activities at the Eisenhower Middle High School. They support the Knights football, soccer, boys basketball, cross country, baseball, wrestling, elementary basketball, boys track, cheerleading, and the Elementary/Middle School Parent Teacher Organizations. Because of all your support, we raised more than $8,000 for school activities. Thank you to Midtown Motors, The Ford Motor Company, Ike Pride volunteers, and especially to all the drivers.
Congratulations to Emily Bailey and Thomas Warren, our 2016 Eisenhower Homecoming King and Queen who were crowned Friday night, Sept. 23.

Girl Scout Trip
Lately there has been a multitude of pink flamingo sightings in Sugar Grove. It is not the recent warm weather. It is our Sugar Grove Girl Scout Troop 36680 who have been seen flocking the yards of Sugar Grove at night.
If you see pink flamingos in a yard that means someone has made a donation to “flock” that neighbor. The Girl Scouts are raising funds to take a trip to the Carnegie Science Center. They are at 70 percent of their goal so keep sending in those flock request.

You are invited to get behind the wheel of a new Ford vehicle at Eisenhower High School on Friday, Sept. 23, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. For every test drive taken, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the school with a grand total of up to $6,000. Plus a chance to earn more donations from Ford. Just come to EMHS on Friday and sign up to take a test drive. The event happens rain or shine. All the vehicles have been on site at the school for the week. Once a Knight, Always a Knight. If everyone in the community who was once a Knight, stopped over to take a test drive, we would hit our target of $6,000 easily.
