Back by popular request, we are happy to announce the 18th annual “Give Your Heart to Your Community” Valentines Day Project.
Held on Friday, February 12, the event is sponsored by the Fulton County Community Foundation, WROI Radio, and RTC Communications.
Donors make a contribution to a fund of their choice and in return, send their valentine a gift they won’t soon forget! Giving levels begin at $15 and range from a song dedication on WROI, a singing telegram and long stem rose personally delivered, or a display of love for a beloved pet with a Palentine greeting displayed on RTC Communications channel 5 and Facebook.
Get a donation form and song list. Make your gift double with a $1 for $1 match to Community Funds.
Once every so often, a couple come along who truly leave a mark on their community. After moving to Bass Lake, Indiana, in the 1980s, Robert and Arlene Hamilton rolled up their sleeves, got involved in their new community, and made a difference; and the people of Starke County have benefitted from their contributions for decades.
After Arlene passed away, Bob started the Arlene M. Hamilton Memorial Fund in her honor. It supports the Coalition Against Domestic Abuse (CADA), which works to assist individuals and their children who are being abused or are in dangerous situations. The fund continues the work that Arlene began in her community many years ago.
When Bob passed, the name of the fund was changed to include his name, and honors the Hamilton's legacy of public service.
