Bluffton Family Recreation would like to thank everyone who donated their old shoes for our fundraiser. We collected over 5,400 pairs of shoes that are now being refurbished and are on their way to people who can use them all over the world.
The money you helped us raise is helping to maintain the BFR building and purchase new equipment. We would like to especially thank Sharon Calvelage and Jerry Burkholder for all the shoes they contributed and also our BFR volunteers for making this fundraiser a success.
Relay for Life is an organized overnight event for the community. It is for individuals, teams, families and survivors. Teams walk overnight to help raise money and support for American cancer.
Thru the night there will be a survivor meal followed by the survivor first lap. We have food, games for children, entertainment, pie, silent and chair auctions 5K glow run. It is a very community and family environment.

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.
