Volunteerism freshens room and spirits: Olmsted Dates and Data

OLMSTED FALLS, Ohio – The Bulldog spirit does not hibernate in times of stress and, yes, even fear.

Several community members came together – well, keeping socially distant – to help rejuvenate part of the Olmsted Community Center.

Donna Winter, the center’s executive director, noticed the floor in Hawkins Hall, the former Olmsted Falls Middle School cafeteria, needed some freshening up. It was scraped in June and time for repainting.

“I didn’t want to ask for a lot of people to volunteer because of socially distancing while painting,” she said. “I thought it would take at least two days, but we will have it completed today.”

The volunteers, Chris Gaete, Bob Garrity, Tori Donahue, Carley Abbott, Becca Abbott, Larry Abbott and Jen Abbott, showed up Saturday afternoon and grabbed the paint brushes and rollers.

The Abbott family came together as a family in this effort. Becca Abbott, an Olmsted Falls

Dubuque high school teacher creates special room to help struggling students

DUBUQUE, Iowa (KCRG) – Molly Anderson has been a teacher at Dubuque Senior High School for 17 years.

“I love Senior High School; we call ourselves the Ram Family and I buy into that a hundred percent,” Anderson said. “If I am a part of your family I would take care of you if you needed something.”

She recognizes many families struggle with going back to school, so she is doing something to help out. The school has been calling this room the Giving Room. Inside there are brand new school materials, like backpacks, notebooks, and pencils. Aside from that, there is also food, toiletries, and clothes.

“One of the best things about Senior is that we take care of each other and if maybe not having clean clothes is a reason that stops a kid from coming to school or makes him uncomfortable, just trying to alleviate some of

A Tribute to Dee: Family suggests to name room at Community Center after beloved lady

A Tribute to Dee: Family suggests to name room at Community Center after beloved lady

BY MARCY SHORTUSE- Legends never die, and our island has had our share of great ones. There are some names that stick out more than others, though, and Dee Wheeler’s is one of them. While she was born in Sarasota and grew up in Englewood, she married island boy Dumplin’ Wheeler in 1958 and – with the exception of a period of time when the couple lived in Virginia when he was in the Army – Boca Grande was truly her home. She started working with the Parks & Recreation in Englewood, following in her mother, Martha Shirling’s footsteps, who was on the Recreation Board for Sarasota County and worked as the teen director for the county’s program in Englewood. Since the early 1970s Dee had been working toward creating programs for the island’s youth, and she never stopped until the day she passed in May of 2017.

The family room, also know as the living room, is the place where you and your other family members spend most of their time in. This is also where almost all your entertainment electronics are located– the television set, DVD player, game consoles, stereo and more. The family room holds most of your home’s furniture and most families also entertain their guests in this space.

Family Room Design Ideas : The OC Ranch Reno

I am so excited to be getting to the point in the OC Ranch Reno process to be planning the furniture and decor design plan! This house will be used as more of a vacation home, so the design plan is going to lean more toward a beachy/CA col vibe. I am such a visual person that I have a hard time doing anything without creating a design board. Whether for my own home or client’s homes. It is so helpful to put together a board of the basics so that you can get the overall feel of a space before you spend the money to put it together. These family room design ideas are no exception! Here is the design board for this fun family room:
