Check being presented to Tri-County Care Center.

Courtney Kraft, daughter of Brian and Lindsey Kraft, presented a check in the amount of $250.00 from the New Harmony Christian Church to the Tri-County Care Center on Sunday, April 28.  Church members had each received a “30 Pieces of Silver” bag during Lent and were encouraged to reflect upon its meaning as they added coins during that time.  Courtney (age 7) approached Melvin Fisher, Board Chair, and suggested the money be given “to the nursing home where Papa Joe (Branstetter) had been” as she thought they could use the money “to help the people who live there”.  The Board wholeheartedly supported this suggestion.  The money will be used to purchase some new music CD’s and exercise equipment for the residents.
