Halcyon House News

Sep 01, 2017

The Church of God provided the weekly service to Halcyon House residents this past Sunday. Scripture from Jeremiah 29:10 was shared with those in attendance. Special guitar music was provided for the service.

Halcyon House is excited to share that close to $3,000 dollars and roughly another $1,500 in supplies was donated to the Beemblossom Backpack Campaign. The campaign was held to honor former WCSD teacher and Halcyon House resident, Reta Beemblossom. Halcyon House residents, Bea Johnson, Gladys Ferguson, Carolyn Levy, Jane Leyden, Marcella Reed, Karen McCreedy, MaryAnn Hennigan and many others assisted Wellness Coordinator, Megan Richardson, with the shopping and packing of the supplies. Over 35 backpacks were filled at Halcyon House. Residents wrote short letters of encouragement to be placed in each backpack for the students. A huge thank-you to the Army Reserves Family Program, who donated 20 filled backpacks, and team members from the Riverside Casino and Golf Resort, who donated large quantities of supplies to fill the backpacks. Halcyon House residents and everyone else who donated supplies, funds and time for this project were truly amazing in their giving! What a great way to give back to the youth of our community.

Halcyon House and Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center hosted a Blood Drive, Wednesday, Aug. 30, in the Morrison Center at Halcyon House. Twenty residents, Halcyon House team members, and community members graciously donated to this wonderful cause. The 20 units of blood donated have the ability to improve the lives of up to 76 people and their families, both in Washington County and the surrounding region.

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Donna DeBrie and Maxine Peiffer.

Halcyon House team members and residents extend our deepest sympathy to the family of our friend and resident Donna Teets.
