  • Deien will collect Toys for Tots
    As more families have less to spend at Christmas, now more than ever the Toys for Tots program needs the community's support. Deien Chevrolet is serving as a collection point for the Toys for Tots Program, which was founded by the United States Marine Corps Reserve in 1947 and has distributed more than 452 million toys to over 209 million needy children during hits history. "Anyone can stop by the dealership and donate any new toy, large or small. The goal is to make this an enjoyable Christmas for as many children in our area as possible," said Linda Loepker, Deien Chevrolet's marketing director.  "We are ecstatic to be helping with such a worthwhile cause," said Nathan Deien, general manager at the Trenton dealership. "Christmas is a hard time for many people, especially children. We are looking forward to doing our part to bring joy to children this Christmas season." New, unwrapped toys can be brought to Deien Chevrolet in Trenton until December 17.  The dealership is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Saturday until 2:30 p.m. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, a not for profit charity, is the authorized fund raising and support organization for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The mission of the Foundation is to provide a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children during Christmas. While the Marines coordinate and manage the program, the Foundation's success depends on the support of the local community and the generosity of people who donate toys, and that's why Deien Chevrolet has joined this cause.

  • New Baden UMC plans "Blue Christmas" service
    While many of us bask in the holiday spirit of good cheer, the season of Christmas can be painfully difficult for others. Statistics show that a rise in depression is common during the winter, and it is particularly prevalent during the holidays. The New Baden United Methodist Church offers a special Blue Christmas worship service at 7 p.m. Saturday, December 20, because they recognize that Christmas can be a season of grief as well as joy. Some face this season with issues of health, loss, separation or concern for the world. Join us for a simple service of comforting and hopeful scripture readings, a brief meditation and an extended time of prayer to lift our yearnings for healing and wholeness for ourselves and our world.
