Reporting and writing for the Boone County Journal in recent months has been enjoyable and beneficial. Gene Rohrer, owner of the Boone County Journal, agreed to make donations to two of my favorite civic organizations in lieu of pay, the Southern Boone Learning Garden and Helping Hands of Southern Boone.

The Helping Hands of Southern Boone is starting its Project Warm drive for this winter. Project Warm is a program from Helping Hands which provides coats to those who need them.
