A perfect chain of events resulted in long-term financial support for the Sunshine Vans program, which is operated through the Crawfordsville Parks & Recreation. The first link in this chain is Hoosier Heartland State Bank, whose mission as a community bank is to give back to our community through financial support, as well as hands-on service projects. HHSB created a Shared Values Award event, designed to support local nonprofits and highlight the important work they do in our community. A component of this event are the Mission, Vision and Values Awards, given to employees recognized for their commitment to these shared values. Peers vote on employees who best exemplify these values and then the winners choose a local nonprofit to receive the monetary award. Sandy Webb was the winner of the Mission Award, and she became the next link in the chain.
Webb has worked for HHSB for 22 years and is currently Branch Manager of the Roachdale and Ladoga locations. She considered it a great privilege and honor to win the award and immediately started researching local nonprofits. Webb said it was a daunting task to choose just one but eventually she chose the Sunshine Vans program, which she considers a hidden treasure in our community. She was impressed with their mission of providing transportation for the elderly and disabled in our community. Whether it be for doctor appointments, pharmacy runs, banking needs, or dialysis treatments, these vans are there five days a week to assist. They are also the only provider that is wheelchair accessible in the county, making their service even more valuable. Sandy felt good about her decision and was excited to direct the $5,000 award to the Sunshine Vans. Brenda Tarter, Senior Program Director, and the next link in this chain, was even more excited to receive it. 
Question of the Week:

Now that you've had a little time to get used to it, what do you think of the newest addition to downtown, the tower on top of the courthouse?
