Grace Lutheran Church in Elmore will hold a benefit breakfast for Sam Cappozziello, a 25-year old local man who is battling cancer, Feb. 7 from 7 to 10 a.m.
Though Cappozziello’s prognosis is now improving, his medical costs keep mounting, breakfast organizers say.
The menu will include Tank’s sausage and bacon, scrambled eggs, juice, milk, coffee and all the pancakes one can eat. A donation of $3 per person is requested, although larger gifts will be gratefully accepted. Thrivent Financial for Lutheran will provide matching funds.
Nominations are being sought from the community for the Toledo Association for the Education of Young Children’s “Shining Star” award, presented to dedicated professionals who provide quality early learning experiences for young children.
Co-workers, parents, professionals and others are invited to submit a one-page typed letter explaining why a person working with children from birth to 8 years is a “Shining Star.” Honorees are selected in a variety of categories including Special Education, Administration, Kindergarten through Third-Grade teachers and Home Care Providers. An official nomination form with details for submission can be found at www.toledoaeyc.org. The nomination deadline is March 6. All nominees and winners will be honored at a special Shining Star evening in early May.
