As Heart and Cancer telethon approaches, Class of ‘86 challenges community

By Correne Martin

The Eagles Heart and Cancer Telethon might be two months away yet, but plans are already underway to make this 40th year more special than ever. A new donor recognition program, called the Hearty Donors, is being introduced for the Jan. 31, 2015, telethon in Prairie du Chien. It is for those organizations, businesses or individuals who give $1,000 or more.

The idea for the Hearty Donors classification came about when Jaaren Riebe, of the Prairie du Chien High School Class of 1986, approached telethon co-host Tom Stram about how the class could contribute a significant amount to the telethon.

So how does a class that graduated high school 28 years ago still have money in the bank?

Good nourishment for your soul offered at Thanksgiving Eve Service

By Correne Martin

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, you may be anticipating a day of nourishment for your body. But have you considered feeding your soul as well? There is an opportunity to open up your spirit and experience an evening of uplifting scripture, prayer and music for the soul at the annual Ecumenical Thanksgiving Eve Service in Prairie du Chien. This year’s ritual will be held at the Cornerstone Foursquare Church in Bridgeport at 7 p.m. The clergy will offer valet parking.

“Ecumenical means community, but it also means family. The service is open to everybody,” said Pastor Mike Christensen, of the Prairie du Chien United Methodist Church, one of the organizers of the service.

“It’s obviously Christian-based and for all faith families, but it’s also for folks who are not tied to God in any way.”
