Holy Trinity Lutheran Preschool celebrates 35 years | Life ... - MyWebTimes.com

Monday, October 03, 2016

This marks the third year of participation in this program, which has included Michelle Jewett, Cassie Burkhart, Carleigh Musser, Rebekah Meyers and, currently, Shelby Osborne.Throughout the years, the preschool has enrolled more than 3,100 children. From the beginning, the butterfly has been a symbol for the preschool. It symbolizes growing — just as a butterfly emerges from its cocoon to explore the world, the children who attend the preschool are allowed to spread their wings and explore their world while in a safe and structured environment. The preschool’s mission statement is "Providing a Christ-centered education for preschool age children."Students learn about God and His love and forgiveness for them through weekly Bible stories, songs and daily prayer. They are introduced to age- and developmentally-appropriate activities that will foster spiritual, social/emotional, cognitive and physical development. These skills are achieved through the use of Bible stories, learning centers, hands-on experiences, field trips and indoor/outdoor skills. Children also are introduced to phonics/reading skills they will need in kindergarten through the program’s five-day class.In 1992 Rev. John Gutz was called to serve as pastor at the church and continues to guide and support the preschool through his examples and teachings. On occasion, Gutz will lead the children in Bible songs with his guitar, tell the weekly Bible story or just stop in to visit with the children.Holy Trinity Lutheran Preschool is licensed by the state Department of Children and Family Services. The Holy Trinity Board of Education, under the direction of the Church Council, also is responsible for overseeing the operation of the preschool.During the 2016-2017 school year, classes are offered Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 8:30 to 11 a.m. and Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 12:30 to 3 p.m. There also is a class on Tuesday/Thursday from 8:30 to 11 a.m. The five-day class meets every day from 8:30 to 11 a.m.Holy Trinity also offers a Caterpillars class for children ages 18 months to 3 years.

Idaho Patriot Guard Riders to help bring Civil War veteran home - Idaho Statesman

Monday, August 01, 2016

Ninety-four years after a Civil War veteran’s cremated remains were stored away and forgotten at an Oregon mental hospital, Pvt. Jewett Williams is going home to Maine.Members of the Idaho Patriot Guard Riders, a group that honors fallen U.S. military personnel, will escort the remains through Idaho and hand them off to another chapter in Montana.“It’s a tremendous honor for us to be asked to be part of the escort,” said Dario Bell, state captain for the Patriot Guard Riders. “That’s the ultimate respect we can provide to him.”Williams grew up in Hodgdon, Maine, a small farming town just west of the U.S. border with New Brunswick, Canada, where his parents were raised. In October 1864, at age 21, he enlisted in Company H of the 20th Maine Volunteer Infantry Regiment. The regiment took part in three battles near Petersburg, Va., in late 1864 and early 1865.It also participated in Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee’s April 9, 1865, surrender at the Appomattox Courthouse and later marched to Washington, D.C., where a military procession and celebration dubbed the Grand Review of the Armies took place on May 23 and 24,...

Monday, August 01, 2016

SALEM, Oregon (AP) — Jewett Williams served in the 20th Maine Regiment in the Civil War. When he died in 1922 at an Oregon insane asylum, he was cremated and his ashes were stored and forgotten along with the remains of thousands of other patients.With a color guard in Civil War-era uniforms present, Oregon State Hospital officials handed over Williams' ashes to a group of motorcycle-riding military veterans for a journey across the country to his home state."He was a son, a brother, a husband and a father. At the end of his life, however, he was alone and institutionalized here," Oregon Senate President Peter Courtney said at the ceremony. "When he died, nobody came. Nobody came to honor him. Nobody came to take him home. Nobody came. Until today."Members of the Patriot Guard Riders, a group that attends the funerals of U.S. military veterans, firefighters and police, then solemnly received the ashes, started their Harleys and began the long journey to Maine. Wearing leather vests festooned with patches d...
