Sugar Grove Life

Photo submitted to Times Observer Eric Shotts from EMHS spread Christmas Cheer on the last day before the holiday break. It was a cold and windy spot but students, staff, parents, bus drivers and anyone passing the Eisenhower High School on Friday, Dec. 23, were treated to our own live Elf on the Shelf as part of the SADD Holiday Theme of events for the week. All the horn honking, waving and shouts of Merry Christmas from 7 to 8 a.m. set a great mood for the final day before break. It was the talk of the school from Kindergarten through 12th grade for the rest of the day.

A Season of Giving

Thank You to all those in our Community who gave throughout the Holiday Season.  While the economy struggles, it seems generous donations were being given every day. Our AMVETS and American Legion provided supplies to our Service men and women as well as Toys for Tots, our Community gave generously to the Salvation Army Red Kettle, and numerous giving projects were held at our local churches.
