Applause, Applause

Each Saturday, The Express community newspaper highlights people, groups and activities our readers deem worthy of applause.

We would like to THANK the couple who paid for our meal at Pizza Hut in Flemington on July 21. It was greatly appreciated and God bless you.

— The McHenrys

My husband and I would like to THANK everyone of the kind, concerned people who stopped by Saturday afternoon when my husband fell and was injured on the Fair Point Road. We were very blessed to have so many come to our aid and stay with us until the ambulance arrived. We just want to thank you for being there and for you support.

The Downtown Lock Haven Rotary would like to THANK Carol Brown for her donation of books for the Little Red Libraries!!

The Lock Haven Area Shoe Bank would like to THANK the Jersey Shore State Bank for their recent donation from their fundraiser. We appreciate them for choosing us as one of their recipients.

Words cannot express the heartfelt gratitude that the family of Sonja Barner, Horses of Hope, Inc. and Heroes & Horses has for the support and generosity that was shared at the Sonja Barner Scholarship Fund Benefit. Sonja’s Memory will live on in the hearts of all that knew her and many that never met her and only heard of her diligence, stamina, and joy of life. Even though she had MS, she continued to work, participate in Horses of Hope, Inc. and touch the lives of everyone that she met. Sonja Barner’s family would like to say THANK YOU for the monetary donations, donations of baskets, food, band, pavilion, and the countless hours of volunteers that made this event a success, her legacy will live on to make a difference in deserving peoples’ lives. The event raised a minimum of $8,600 that was donated to Horses of Hope, Inc. to be earmarked as a Scholarship Fund for deserving individuals to be able to participate in their Equine Assisted Program for Deserving Individuals with Special Needs. Horses of Hope, Inc. would like to Thank the Sonja Barner Family and the many donors for their generosity. In addition, $1,000 was donated to Heroes & Horses that provides Equine Assisted Programs to our Honored Veterans and Active Duty Military totally FREE OF CHARGE. They meet every other weekend, meals are provided and they share the opportunity to spend time together and with the horses. Heroes & Horses would like to Thank the Sonja Barner Family & the many donors for their generosity. THANK YOU!!
