  • Elizabethtown Community and Technical College faculty, staff and students recently donated more than $260 to Helping Hand of Hope. The money was raised at the annual Jean Dudgeon Faculty/Staff Variety Show, in which faculty and staff entertain the college community with song, dance, skits and comedy.

    The show is named for Jean Dudgeon, a retired foreign language professor at ECTC, who coordinated the show for more than 29 years. This is the 33rd year the college has hosted the variety show.

  • Bestway Rent-to-Own in Radcliff encouraged customers to bring in food items to benefit Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland. In the end, the business collected almost 200 pounds of food to be donated. These items will be used to help those in need in FAKH’s service area.   

  • For more than 20 years, our church has held a party a week or so before Christmas for the 50-plus children who live in a nearby apartment complex. The formula is pretty simple: we sing Christmas carols, have sandwiches and something to drink and sing “Happy Birthday” to Jesus before we eat cake. The children pick out and wrap gifts for their moms or grandmothers, whomever they live with. They take home a goodie bag filled with candy and maybe gloves and socks and also get a wrapped gift.

  • For more than 30 years, individuals with special needs have been close to Diana Bennett’s heart.

    She taught special education in Hardin County Schools from 1975 to 2010.

    Before beginning her teaching career she attended Western Kentucky University and worked as a teacher’s aid in special education. It intrigued her. There was something interesting and different about the class and the students drew her in, Bennett said.

    “Special education has always been where my heart is,” she said.

  • I would like to extend a special thank you and holiday wish to all who helped with Honor our Heroes, a road block held Nov. 16 to raise money for Wreaths Across America.

    Those helping included members of the following organizations: Vietnam Veterans Motorcycle Club USA, Second Brigade Motorcycle Club, Rolling Thunder, Sons of God Motorcycle Club, Armed Forces Motorcycle Club, A.R.M., Kentucky Patriots, Gloria Henderson, Girl Scout Troop 336, Boy Scout Troop 153, Radcliff Fire Department and Vine Grove Fire Department.
