- Shared by Michael Klump, “This guy amazes me! 2 years ago he was in a hospital bed not sure if he was going to make it or ever walk again. He has more plates, screws, broken bones, and time in the hospital than anyone else I know. He also has more drive, determination, and mind over matter ability than most on this planet. From being in a wheel chair 2 years ago I just witnessed him do a triathlon where he swam 750 meters, biked 20km, and then ran 5km. This just goes to show you that your mind is a powerful thing and if you decide to do something sometimes your mind is the only thing that holds you back. Way to go Jimmy Childs! You are the man!”
- The Shepherd Elementary now offers a lending library. From the Shepherd Elementary School’s Facebook Page: “You may have noticed some books in the entrance of our building. This is a lending library for everyone to access. Feel free to borrow a book. When you are finished, please return it and take another. We plan to rotate different books into this location throughout the year. Thank you to our first grade teacher, Shawna Hartwell, for setting this up for our students and their families.”

We would also like to extend a big thanks to all of the donors and local businesses that generously contributed to make this event happen.”
