Each Saturday, The Express community newspaper highlights people, groups and activities our readers deem worthy of applause.
I would like to send out a great big THANK YOU to my family, friends, total strangers and businesses who donated to Ryan’s Paving Project at the Friendship Community Center in Beech Creek. Due to the virus scare I had to cancel several of my fund raising efforts, but once the scare is over I will raise money to complete my senior project. I would also like to thank everyone who donated money to my project in memory of my “Aunt” Ethel “Sis” Heverly. Aunt Ethel was very happy that I was doing this for the center. Sadly God called her home before I could get it finished. Even though she is not here, I know she is watching over us and I will make her proud as I complete my paving project.
