Numerous studies have shown that "buying locally" strengthens the economic base for a community.
That's why Kane area residents are being asked to show more support for their own local hospital.
"We really need to stick together and pull together," Gary Rhodes said Thursday. He has worked at Kane Community Hospital (KCH) for 25 years and has been the chief executive officer (CEO) for the past 16 years.
Donations have been rolling in to help cover the cost of repairs at the skate/bike facility at Glenwood Park in Kane.
More than $4,000 has been raised so far for the work at the wooden ramps.Â
Until work is completed and the facility passes inspection by an insurance representative, the borough continues to mark the skate/bike ramps off limits to riders.
Two events to assist the skate/bike park are set for today. Demonstrations and music will be featured at the site from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
There might not be an easier way to raise money for student groups at Kane Area High School.
The Ford Motor Company will donate $20 for every person who goes behind the wheel Saturday and âtest drivesâ a new Ford vehicle. In addition, the company will donate a âbonusâ of $10 for every âtest driveâ in a 2013 Ford Escape.
Ford will donate up to $8,000 under the program to benefit the âHurri-Kaneâ school yearbook, the Class of 2014 (juniors), the Class of 2015 (sophomores) and the Kane chapter of Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD).
It was a successful first Career and College Night at Kane Area High School.
The event, which was held Wednesday evening in conjunction with open house at the school, gave parents and students a chance to visit with representatives from colleges, industry and the military services.
"It was really a good idea," Phillip Carlson of Mt. Jewett said in commenting on the program in the school gymnasium. "It gives parents the chance to go from table to table to see what's available for their children."
