2016 Remarkable Year
2016 was a remarkable year for Hawthorne Community Center. The capital project was completed during the summer and we moved out of the old Carnegie (Center for Working Families) building back into the main building.
2016 New Year
My 2016 New Year Resolution is to be more dedicated to sharing information via our website blog.
Beginning of Summer
In my 45 years at Hawthorne, I have certainly had my share of ups and downs, celebration and mourning, births and deaths, acceptance and rejection.
Hawthorne Has finally announced its public capital campaign to raise 3.5 million to totally renovate and add space to our facility.
With the snow and very cold weather on everyone's mind, I have decided to pen a blog about Hawthorne and our plans to renovate and add much needed space to our facility.
Things are really jumping at Hawthorne. In the past few weeks we have received a sizeable gift for out capital campaign.
With Mother's Day behind us, I have reflected on my time at Hawthorne and the influence of my mother, Marie Kenley.
Spring Brings Blessings
It has been quite an exciting time at Hawthorne in the past few weeks. First, we have been approved for funding through the United Way of Central Indiana to begin to have our building renovated to become a licensed child care facility.
As Spring approaches, we think about warmer weather, basketball tournaments and Easter Egg hunts.
I had the privilege to drive the senior citizens home today after our daily program.
New Years Resolution
My resolution for 2013 is to be cleaner, leaner, and greener. I have started to clean out shelves, files and boxes of really old Hawthorne stuff.
Holiday Talent Program
This past weekend was very memorable for me. I watched yet another group of young people perform in the Hawthorne talent program.
Welcome to the new updated website!
I am so excited about our new "blog" opportunity on our updated website. This is my first attempt to actually do it but I am certainly a veteran of reading the "blogs" of others. I want to start my first effort to talk about my personal history with Hawthorne and how I have witnessed its benefits to our community for the time I have worked here.
