"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange
A Warm Feeling

On Tuesday Dave Young, Aaron Lange, Datoka Spires, and I spent many of our work days on the porch of the Brevoort House in downtown Vincennes collecting coats, money, and food items for distribution to those who need help in our community. It was really the first cold day of this Fall and we were all pretty cold, but the results warmed our hearts and will warm hundreds of boys and girls and adults this winter.
Thanks to all who took a few moments to check their closets. Thanks to all who gave money. Thanks to all who gave food items. Our Town may not be as rich on our 1040's as other places, but we are rich in our concern for others and you showed it again at 6th and Busseron. Thanks. And thanks to the Salvation Army for getting the collected items to the public who needs them.
