Box 325, Norwalk, IA 50211 Member of: National Newspaper Iowa Newspaper Association Association O KATHY PIERCE Concluded from p. 1 2001. Pierce says that the bears are a source of comfort for youngsters when they become scared or worried about a parent leaving home. The bears are "huggable" -- something the child can cling too, hug and even sleep with at night. Since 2001, more than 11,000 bears have been distrib- uted. Parents have commented on how the bears have helped their children. One woman, named Tammi, wrote, "If those bears could only talk about how much they have been talked to by my little bo3 they would have a great deal to tell his daddy. It was wonderful for our son to talk to the bear at night just like he was talk- ing to his dad at bedtime." And Jennifer wrote, "The bears the kids received are not in very good shape after this long deployment. They had them in their hands most of the time at home carrying them around wher- ever they went." Another source of fundraising is through Certificates of Appreciation. Money donated for bears or medallions can honor an individual. The Auxiliary will provide a colorful certificate with the American Flag featured in the background. In part, it reads "In recognition, a "Hug- gable Teddy Bear" will be donated to the children of deployed Iowa National Guard members in your name." Pierce and her committee members are willing to give programs to any dub or organization that wishes more information on the fundraising projects. You may con- tact her at 515-285-0894 or by going to kathy_pierce@q.com. Checks should be made payable to INGOAux and mailed to Polk County Bank, PO Box 79, Polk City, IA 50226 Attention: INGOAux Donation Account. Pierce will accept checks when orders are placed through her. STAN D RIE G RO U P LEADERS IN COMMUNICATION SOLUTIONS N. NEWTON STANDRIDGE (515) 229-5310 WWW.

Thank you to everyone who attended to Grand March and After Prom. It seems as though everyone had a great time! There is nothing like witnessing a room full of laughter and seeing kids being kids. When I was leaving at the end of the night, the people at Tokens told me that this was a great bunch of kids. I told them, "You aren't telling me anything I don't al- ready know." Norwalk kids at the best! Special thanks to Jill Anderson and Lisa Smith for taking the lead on the I st ever Grand March. I hope this was the start of a long time Norwalk tradition. Best of luck to all of you. Thanks for always warming my heart. /sfrheresa Webb SUBSCRIBE TODAY!
