Photos and story by Monty Siekerman

Our Lady of Lourdes bake sale, lunch and bazaar is a popular place to go each year on Veterans Day.

Here, Terry Theodore shows a money tree that she contributed for the bazaar. Yes, money does grow in trees, at least in this instance. A packet of seeds of the money plant were attached, as well.

Sharon Fields checks out a table of scrumptious desserts at the bake sale.

$700 to World Vision thanks to local churches and ONU student efforts

By Monty Siekerman
Two local churches helped about 40 ONU students NOT eat last weekend.

As part of the religious life program on campus, the students volunteered not to eat for 30 hours to partially experience what its like to go hungry. And, the $700 they saved from not buying food went to World Vision.

The fast ended with a spaghetti dinner at the First Presbyterian Church.

During the fast, students were occupied on campus and at the First Baptist Church with time for worship, service projects, and games.
