Vyas Family Bridges Home Ribbon Cutting
Please join us for the Vyas Family Bridges Home Ribbon Cutting and celebration of Ernie Peters Day on Tuesday, Oct. 29th at 5:15 pm at the new home, 1808 N Minnesota. Six girls are looking forward to moving into the home, along with their foster parents, Marty and Gary Johnson, on November 1. Come help us celebrate this new home and “real family” for children who have no other home.
Congratulations Mosaic Winner, Steve Clark!
Congratulations Steve Clark of GF Advertising from Mitchell, SD! You are the winner of Mosaic — the beautiful 2006 Harley Davidson Electra Glide redesigned by the Abbott House girls.
The women’s jacket winner is Jan Yu from Augusta, Georgia. The men’s jacket winner is David Boltjes from Adrian, Minnesota. The jackets will be shipped to the winners. This project would not be possible without the community support, sponsors and all of the ticket purchasers. Your support changes the lives of children.
Our Sympathy goes out to the family of Crystal Schulz
Crystal worked at the Abbott House for more than 1 1/2 years as a teaching counselor. Crystal grew up in the Mitchell area. She found a special connection with the girls here and spent her time helping them believe in themselves. Crystal touched the lives of girls and our staff members on a daily basis. She will be missed.
