  • For some, Christmas comes calling

    Thousands of numbered boxes sat on the floor and lined the walls of the Business Magnet Center. In the middle of the warehouse stood a row of brightly colored bicycles, and at 8:30 a.m. Friday, about 100 bundled volunteers crowded around the back of a white Helping Hand of Hope truck.

    “Our intent is to deliver a good Christmas meal,” said David Dozer, executive director of Helping Hand of Hope.

    After saying a prayer, volunteers scattered, loading boxes and bikes into vehicles before delivering to county residents.

  • Helping others brings great reward for the Washles

    David Washle and his wife, Janine, have built a good life for themselves over the years.

    They have a nice house in the western part of Hardin County, plenty of land, good health and a strong faith in God.

    The Washles take great joy in being able to help those who for whatever reason have fallen on hard times or just are in need of a little extra help to brighten their day or Christmas season.

    It was a communion meditation message at Glendale Christian Church that inspired them to do more for those who have less.

  • Seeing local woman's forest for her trees

    Before moving into her home in 1998, Nancy Pence thought about getting a second Christmas tree but convinced herself that was too many.

    Eventually, she changed her mind.

    Since then, her collection has grown to what she calls 22.4 decorated trees.

    Excluding the laundry room, she now has at least one Christmas tree in every room of her Elizabethtown home.

    A living room near the front door is void of furniture except for a couple tables and a glass cabinet, so there’s room for three trees there during the holiday season.
