Meet CHRS MSN. The Icon spotted this plate on a red Chrysler 300 S in the Mennonite Memorial Home parking lot in Bluffton. It has a Hancock County sticker. If Chris is viewing this, please tell us the meaning of this plate.

On behalf of the Bluffton Schools' Board of Education and the levy committee, I would like to thank you for your support of our renewal on Tuesday, March 15. We will continue to spend these permanent improvement dollars wisely and will continue to make public where this money is spent each year. We are very proud of our school and the community that supports it. Thank you, again, for all you do for our district!
Want to send out a big thank you to all the volunteers, residents, Mennonite Home, McDonald's and Community Markets for the very organized and well ran Easter egg hunt on Saturday, March 19.
I took my three year-old grandson Garrett and this was his first-ever Easter egg hunt as well.
He was so excited to have his number drawn in the basket give away and the number of eggs he was able to get.
Kudos to all those who took part in making this a wonderful and safe event for children! June Fields

Bluffton’s Boy Scout Troop 256 is participating in a community-wide service project called Scouting For Food.
In fact, it’s the Scout’s biggest service project of the year. On Saturday, March 5, we’re going to go door-to-door in Bluffton to put a yellow grocery bag on everybody’s doorstep or porch. During the week, your bags can be filled with canned goods and such.
On March 12, put the filled bag back on your doorstep or porch. The Scouts will pick them up and take the donated items to the Bluffton Food Pantry.

Note: Jan Emmert provides the following additional information concerning the photo of Santa that the Icon posted on Dec. 24. The information provided is a portion of an email he sent to his brothers and sisters.
There are two things of interest to our family in this picture in the Bluffton Icon of downtown Bluffton, including the old Citizens Bank in the Center of town.

Thank you so much to the voters of Allen County for the passage of our Senior Citizens Services Levy! The seniors thank you as well. We will now have just the one levy in Allen County to go before voters every 5 years. It includes a renewal of our .5 mil levy and an increase of .5 mil. We will stop collecting on a .3 mil levy that was also in place. The agencies that share this levy include Bluffton Senior Center, Delphos Senior Citizens, Allen County Council on Aging, and Senior Citizens Services of Lima.

The Friends of the Library would like to thank the community for their support in making the fall book sale the best ever. BUT, we really need donations of books, histories, mysteries, anything but text books, work books and encyclopedias. donating books supports the library.
