It’s never too late to ask for help.
For those facing foreclosure on their homes, the Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Foundation has this advice:
Two Piatt County libraries will close April 9-10 to get ready for the switch to the new Polaris-based library management system.
Both the Allerton Public Library in Monticello and the Willow Branch Township Library in Cisco will be closed those two days.
Allerton Park has hosted millions of visitors from all over the world since being donated to the University of Illinois in 1946, but staff are making a concerted effort to make the site more fan-friendly in recent years.
In an effort to help fight the growing obesity and chronic disease epidemic, Terri Rupki at the Kirby Medical Group has become certified as an ACE Health Coach.
With this certification Rupki can guide clients to be physically fit, as well as in mind, and spirit to achieve a balance, strength, agility, coordination, and endurance in all that they do.
Area Girl Scouts are appealing to sweet-tooth instant gratification as they make a switch to direct cookie sales this year. Instead of taking orders for cookies then delivering them several weeks later, they will be sold and delivered in one trip.
Piatt County has been chosen to receive $2,800.00 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county.
The recent flu outbreak has not prompted Kirby Medical Center to limit visitors, but the facility is taking precautions.
At the Jan. 21 girls’ basketball game between the Cerro Gordo-Bement Broncos and Shiloh, free admission will be given to anyone bringing non-perishable items. All proceeds will be taken to the Bement Food Pantry for distribution.
Families interested in being the owner of a Habitat for Humanity Piatt County home being constructed in DeLand should attend an orientation meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24 at DeLand Village Hall, 135 N. Illinois Ave. in DeLand.
