September is here and it is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. As August drew to a close, I kept thinking about how many of our St. Jude friends have lost their children to cancer recently. My heart hurts for them as our own walk of grief has been challenging.

As I thought how these families did or didn't not have support around them, it hit me that I have never taken the time to tell everyone thank you. Without the support of our family, friends, community and surrounding areas, I don't know what our family would have done. We owe you an overdue "Thank you" for all of your support and prayers that started the moment Bryce was diagnosed and has continued well after Alex's funeral last year. During the boy's cancer journey, I remember telling people the support we received was overwhelming.

During the benefit for our family, it was unbelievable how Minonk and surrounding areas pulled together. Our community felt like a large family lifting us up with love and prayers. It was amazing to see the strength of this community and how everyone could pull together. I feel grateful that we live in an area that cares about one another.

Thank you for supporting our Minonk St. Jude running team, too. The time and effort the volunteers put in continuously through the year is amazing. The money our community has raised for St. Jude is incredible and helping so many children and their families. You are also helping the doctors and researchers find better medicines and treatments for the children.

In the coming days, you will see flyers for the 1st Annual TwinPossible Scavenger Hunt for October 1st. The event is being held to raise childhood cancer awareness and to celebrate the lives of Alex and Bryce McKay. All funds raised will go to St Jude Children's Research Hospital. There will also be registration forms available at some local businesses. We hope to see you there.

No Paper Drive Saturday

Minonk friends PLEASE help me spread the word. St. Paul's UCC youth group will NOT be having the Paper Drive in Minonk this weekend. It will be rescheduled for Saturday, October 29th. I apologize for the short notice, but with harvest and school activities it cannot happen until then. Please accept our sincere apologies. Paper may be dropped off in the storage shed in the St. Paul's East parking lot.
