idea that grew from the heart of one woman has reached the hearts
of many and final preparations are being made for the Giving
Hearts supper and multi band fest set for Saturday, February
6 at the Milan VFW from 4-10 p.m.
The entire evening is a cooperative effort on the part of many
to raise money for the family of Dylan Eadens, a 2008 JCD graduate,
who was involved in a tragic accident in December and remains
in the burn unit at University Hospital in Cincinnati.
Jean Stoddard has spearheaded the effort to help a family in
need. Others heard about the effort and have jumped on board.
Dont miss the opportunity to have a great time and help
a local family at the same time. A fourth band has been added
to the line up. 650north will be joining Wildwood Valley Boys,
Mills Run, and Broken Image.
Also added to the evening is a series of intermittent mini auctions,
which will be conducted by former Ripley County Commissioner
Chuck Folz. There will be raffles and a silent auction as well.
Businesses have donated a number of items to make this a reality.
Stoddard noted the business community has been tremendous.
The meal will be catered by Waynes Meats with carry outs
A large crowd is expected so shuttle buses have been secured
to take people to and from designated parking areas.
If you cant attend the event, but would like to help this
family, please send your tax deductible donations to any Fifth
Third Bank location c/o Friends of Dylan Eadens.
Dylans mother, Barbara Hotko and father, Ken Kebby
Eadens, are both grateful for the outpouring of love from the
community for their son.
A family who has a loved one in the ICU burn unit where Dylan
is, told The Versailles Republican, I would like to take
this opportunity to tell you what an impact Dylans family
and friends have had on my family.
The family went on to describe how impressed they have been
with Dylans family and friends who stay by his side constantly.
They have learned of things the community is doing and commented,
How blessed these people are to live in a small town that
is supporting them so much....I hope Ripley County is proud
of its people.
