Salvation Army Of Cleveland Supports The 181st Field Artillery Regiment

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

More than 200 local men and women are currently deployed as a part of the National Guard’s 1st Battalion 181st Field Artillery Regiment. 

One of the soldiers, Sgt. Jeremiah Martin, contacted officials at the Inman Street Coffeehouse in Cleveland, to let them know how much he missed them. He was a regular in the coffeehouse prior to deployment, and volunteered with the Salvation Army. 

The Salvation Army, Cleveland, felt the most practical way to respond, was to with the help of our customers, send a care package of coffee and notes of appreciation to not only Sgt. Martin, but enough for the entire 181st to enjoy. The community filled out numerous, heartfelt cards of appreciation and love, and The Salvation Army is sending over 50 bags of coffee and tea to the troops in time for Christmas.

Please Don't Close The Piccadilly Cafeteria At Hamilton Place - And Response

Oh, no. The Piccadilly Cafeteria at Hamilton Place is closing.  Its last day is Christmas Eve.  I will miss the great food they have there but most of all I will miss their servers, cashiers and waitresses.  They are all so friendly and accommodating.  They make it like it’s a home-style restaurant.

Roy Exum: 10 Tasks For This Week

In 1993 a 95-year-old man named William Snell created a list called “Life’s Little Instructions.” His list has swirled around in the Internet ever since and it is, indeed, a delightful checklist to keep us focused in the right direction. Curiously, when I read over it this past weekend, it dawned on me that if each of us would try to accomplish just 10 items on Mr. Snell’s list ... (click for more)
