Faith-based causes’ season of need

This time of year there are many, many organizations looking for our donations. No matter where you go, someone has a pet project they are putting forward.

The faith-based ones are, of course, the ones I donate to but there are other worthy ones as well — some for children, some for veterans. It’s hard enough for people to be in need but when the holidays roll around it’s a lot harder, especially if children are involved.

Cory's People: Hats off to vets and event organizers

I’ve just spent a few good hours at the Veterans Memorial Hall in Crescent City celebrating “Veterans Resource Day.” This event is the brainchild of Samantha Isdell and Christopher Thorpe, both VSO employees, who told me they never had the money for a “full-blown Stand Down” yet wanted Del Norte County veterans to feel welcome and to know what their benefits were, as well as connect veterans with services in the community. The following is a sampling of folks I had the pleasure of speaking with today:

 Visitors to the Del Norte County Fairgrounds may soon hear the wail of a train whistle and the clickity-clack of cars riding the rails.

The Del Norte Short Lines Model Railroad Club and the Crescent City Lions are seeking community support for a project that will transform a small room in the fairgrounds’ Home Economics building into a massive railroad layout that will include communities from Grants Pass west to Crescent City and north to Smith River.
