Kilker’s letter was infuriating
We moved to Highland Park almost a year ago, after calling Oregon home for over three decades.
Some of my most memorable community projects were those involving Debbie Dickson.
She is one of the most resourceful, hard-working, creative and forward-thinking women I have ever known—as well as just a lovely and caring person.
Cold bricks and mortar of a building mean nothing unless they go hand-in-hand with people like Debbie, who give heart, soul, time and talent through countless challenges.
The letter written by Lynne Kilker regarding Debbie’s picture on the cover of “Oregon Living Magazine” was absolutely infuriating.
I have no idea how any decent person feels it is appropriate to pass such judgment through the format of a letter in the newspaper and hope it is a wake-up call to do some soul-searching before hitting the “send” key.
Committee says thanks
The Mt. Morris Tourism Committee thanks all of those who were a part of our 2013 tourism event; Country Living Tour - Past and Present.
We had a fantastic, sunny fall day, as those participating enjoyed the beginning of the tour, under the fall colors on the beautiful Mt. Morris campus.
The lovely weather made each of the four sites a joy to visit from the fun Tennessee Picnic at Weller’s Woods to the interesting historical farm hayride at Mike McNett’s.
We have had positive comments about the event and each of the four sites visited.
A debt of gratitude goes out to the owner’s of Weller’s Woods, Barnacopia, West Branch Church, and the McNett farm for agreeing to be a part of the tour.
Thank you to Vinde for covering the event for the newspaper.
Thanks also to those who chose to attend and learn some local history and farm heritage on the Country Living Tour.
