Readers say Thanks
Hi. My name is Dawniece Bicknell, and I would like to tell the community about The Angel Project Program. It is an organization that changed my life.
I am a single mom of a beautiful four-month-old baby boy named Tristyn. Being a single parent is hard enough by itself, and the Angel Project came into our lives and took the weight off my shoulders and blessed us greatly. We had an empty two-bedroom trailer, and had nothing but our clothes.
The Angel Project came in and furnished the entire trailer. They gave us coffee tables, lamps, a stereo, dishes, a kitchen table and chairs, a crib with a matching crib set, a changing table, a king-sized bed with bedding, a washer and dryer and a car. I couldn’t believe it.
We are so very, very thankful for all that they have done in our lives. Without them, I would have nothing, and I really appreciate how they helped me out in my time of need.
I have always wanted a matching crib set for my baby, and knew that I would not be able to give him one. It means a lot to me that he has one. His room feels cozy and warm now.
They blessed my family so much and took the pressures of life off my shoulders.
Before they helped me, I didn’t like to be home. I was overwhelmed by the stress of trying to make that empty place a home. But now it’s so comfortable and it feels good. Now I have time to relax and enjoy Tristyn and not be stressed. That is all thanks to The Angel Project and all its members.
I would like to thank The Angel Project dearly. Words can not describe how they have impacted our lives and made a difference. I would also like to give a special thank-you to Laurie, my Family Visitor, who set everything up and got me involved with The Angel Project. Thank you.

Imagine my surprise when I opened Friday, Nov. 9th’s paper and found that a bench had been co-dedicated to my father, Bob Belcher, from the Lions Club.
Dad loved the Lions Club, almost as much as he loved his church, St. Barnabas, and especially his work with the eyeglasses donation. Even after his health had declined, he made me go check those boxes every week. My dad loved to serve. He would be tickled to know that he was honored in such a wonderful way.
I went and checked out the bench, and it faces his house, which he would have also loved.
Thank you for honoring my father and his service. I will go visit the bench often, as will his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
