Week 47: Colors

Cindy - Peoria:  Our community has really shown it's true colors this week.
There has been such a huge outpouring of support for those communities
that were devastated by the tornadoes last Sunday.  In this photo, Boy Scout
Troop 165 is sorting food, clothing, blankets, and other supplies at one of the
dozens of donation centers.  The response has been so great that the donation
organizers have had to ask the community to start giving their donations
to other needy organizations.  It is so heartwarming to live in such a generous
and caring community.

Week 46: A Day in the Life

Cindy-Peoria:  I was so glad that I was able to get these photos of my boys
before the tornado sirens started going off and the torrential ran hit.
Cindy-Peoria:  Thankfully, we are safe, but a neighboring
town had substantial damage where a tornado struck.  Our thoughts
and prayers go out to the communities of Pekin and Washington, IL.
