Founder's Day Service Project makes direct impact on community

Friday, October 2, a group of individual staff members from the Good Samaritan Society-Waukon and Veterans Memorial Hospital in Waukon were able to reach out to five senior citizens living in the local community through the Good Samaritan Society's annual Founder's Day Service Project. The staff members made changes within the homes of those senior citizens to help prevent them from falling, and those interventions ranged from night lights to ramps.
The service project was a new initiative taken on by Good Samaritan Society-Waukon and Veterans Memorial Hospital, and the goal of the project is to keep senior citizens living in their homes longer and prevent them from a costly hospital visit or nursing home stay.

Everyone who takes to the stage knows that the real drama in a theatre takes place backstage and can create quite a comedy to watch all by itself. This has never been more true than at Theatre Baroque, where the star, one-time matinee idol Burton Cavendish, suddenly dies an hour before the premiere of “Don Juan in Cleveland.”
