I did this a couple of weekends ago with two of my daughters and we enjoyed it so much! I can'tRead More think of many better ways to learn a lot, soak up the sun, have a gorgeous view, and be productive. If you can do it, I'd encourage you to do so! Bring gloves!

Thanks, Amber, for your quick thinking and CPR skills. You saved the life...that's incredible. WhatRead More a miracle that you were right there at that exact moment he needed you. I hate to think what would have happened if you hadn't have been there. I've taken CPR classes 10 times and the best ones I've taken are through the American Red Cross online. The online modules are very informative, visual, you can read the material thoroughly without distraction or feeling rushed, and then you have to go into one of their chapter offices to demonstrate that you can apply what you learned, one-on-one, with given situations (ex. car crash...what do you do from the second you arrive until you leave). I had never felt truly confident about performing CPR until I took that class 6 years ago.

I am a Rotarian, STRIVE volunteer, and local business person. The STRIVE program is a real asset toRead More the community. Watching kids mature and improve attitudes over the school year is truly amazing. We may never know our full impact but it feels good to share my life skills and lessons. Thanks Aaron Thomas for coordinating this great program. LB

That seems a bit harsh. Those who "donated" got golf, cart, drinks, dinner and even lunchRead More prior to the tournament.

There is a philospy that most charitable/civic organizations have regarding those that complain theRead More most/loudest regarding a fundraising event and it is... "The person that complains the most or the loudest gets to be the chairperson for the event the following year". My suggestion to Timmy Trauba is to contact the Matt Spaeth Charity Golf Tournament Committee about getting involved next year. It is possible that some time spent volunteering for this event will give you a different perspective. Hey, maybe they will even let you call it "The Timmy Trauba Charity Golf Tournament". My thought is probably not because no one knows Timmy Trauba. Get the point!! Thanks Matt and everyone involved! I know the foodshelf staff is VERY HAPPY!

Way to go, Anna. What a beautiful heart you have! I had no idea there was such a need, so I'llRead More definitely be dropping some off before you leave. Have a blessed trip and thanks for giving your heart, time, and more so selflessly to others!
