Our Junior Volunteers have been hard at work this summer, doing lots of odd jobs for us--mail, stick pickup, serving lunch, assisting on outings, housecleaning projects, activities, cooking, and many other things.

July's Family Night is always a special time. Not only do we get to enjoy marching band music played by the Peoria Area Senior Citizen Band, but we also get to enjoy soft-serve ice cream as a refreshment. Talk about nostalgia!

When I was small, I remember visiting water parks with my cousin and her family. In the middle of a hot summer day, there was nothing more fun than having water sprayed, splashed, or dumped on you.

People like to talk about freedom on days like today, when we are feeling sentimental and full of heavy picnic food. We lean back in our camp chairs and think about how wonderfully blessed we are to have America. After all, America is truly "the land of the free and th...

I've always enjoyed watching the behind-the-scenes views of plays and movies. I loved to imagine what it would be like to have that view of something that looked so well put together, to view it as a thousand strings instead of a finely-woven cloth.
