Mentors and mentees sign Christmas cards for residents.

The Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau, JUMP program, cares about the residents at Williamsburg Nursing home. For the past three years the JUMP program, mentors and mentees, have been making care packages and handing them out at Williamsburg Nursing home while singing Christmas Carols. 
“The residents at Williamsburg love the attention and getting to talk to the children in the program,” stated Jill Hampton, JUMP Program Manager. “The JUMP program tries to do one or two monthly group activities per year that allow the kids to give back to the community in some small way. Not only is this important for kids to learn to do, but they also really enjoy the good feeling that comes with helping others.”
The JUMP program met at the Crawfordsville Public library to make the care packages. The grant money to make these gifts came from the Youth As Resources fund after two JUMP mentees, Destiny and Madissen, wrote the grant to apply for the funds. The care packages consisted of the following: two homemade crafts, a fleece holiday blanket, socks with rubber grips and some hand crème. They also included a Christmas card signed by all the mentors and mentees that attended the event.
Question of the Week:

Love him or hate him, President Donald Trump certainly stays in the news. Political buzz suggests that some Democrats are looking to begin impeachment proceedings against him in 2019. What do you think about that?

Imagine, in this computer age, something that gets young people to forget about cell phones and screens. The trains at the Haan Museum do just that - they become a passport as they travel the world during Christmas at the Haan Museum. Visit London as two trains meander past the Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, Kensington Palace, and many other famous landmarks. Visit 19 historic American landmarks in the next room as a larger train passes the Empire State Building, Independence Hall, Wrigley Field, the Golden Gate Bridge and other famous buildings. Children and adults alike follow the trains as they travel through a closet and bedroom to another bedroom, where you’ll find Lafayette landmarks. Take an even closer look by crawling through a tunnel and watching from inside the loop. You'll find Christmas trees in almost every room. Kids can play in the gingerbread-style house or ride in a sleigh behind two (stationary) reindeer. Santas, garland, wreaths, nativity sets and interactive musical characters that sing and dance add to the Christmas spirit. The Indiana paintings and antiques will remain in place during Christmas to maintain the homey feel of the Colonial Revival mansion. The Haan Museum is impressive on an ordinary day, and seeing it all decked out for the Holidays is an experience your family will remember fondly.
