    The largest donation in the history of the Greater Lyman Foundation has pushed the GLF total donations to $716,935.94, easily exceeding GLF’s most recent goal of $650,000. 
   When Cecelia Hofwolt died this spring she left a will which named GLF as a one-fourth beneficiary of her residuary estate. Such resulted in a devise to GLF of $182,188.85, the largest in GLF’s history. According to estate representatives, Mrs. Hofwolt also included three other charities in her will, National Reyes Syndrome Foundation, Alzheimers Foundation, and Gideon’s International. 
   According to GLF Chairman Herb Sundall, the Board of GLF was overwhelmed by the generosity of Mrs. Hofwolt, and very much appreciative that she would include GLF as a beneficiary of her estate. “We consider her entrusting us with that size of gift as a validation of the purposes of the Greater Lyman Foundation. Her generosity will live on in the grants made by GLF for many years to come”, acknowledged Sundall. 
   Other donations received recently include ones from Rodney J. Sather in honor of Medicine Creek Lion’s Club’s 50 year anniversary, Jim & Bernie Butt, Jim & Eileen Kotz, Dallas Uthe, and in memory of Harold Uthe. 
   Memorials have been given by James & Carol Sundall, Joan Potter, Herb & Deanna Sundall, Paul & LaVerne Olson, Gorilla Logic, Nora Corrigan Manderson, Ruth Ann McManus, Jean Ann Brakke, David & Judy Mertens, Cordie & Marlys Schlomer, James A.

   At a recent meeting of the Board of Directors, the Board set a new goal for the Foundation of $800,000, and the spring event in the spring of 2020 as a deadline for reaching such a new goal. Sundall stated “As I’ve said before, the good news is we have reached our goal, the bad news is we will just set another goal.”

Thrift Store joins Save-A-Label program

By: Angela Eves/LCH

   Looking for a way to help in the community but don’t have extra time to give? The Thrift Store and More in Presho has joined the Best Choice Save-A-Label program. The Save-A-Label program helps non-profit organizations raise money by turning labels into cash.
  Non-profit groups earn $.03 for each Best Choice UPC symbol redeemed, with a minimum of 1,000 labels required for redemption. Each bundle of 1,000 UPC symbols is worth $30, with no limit to how many bundles can be submitted.
  In addition, the Save-A-Label program issues one Bonus Certificate per group per year, which is redeemable with 1,000 UPC labels to receive an additional $30.
  You can help this effort by simply cutting around the UPC label of any Best Choice products, which are sold at local retailers around the area. There are more than 3,500 Best Choice products sold at over 2,400 stores in 24 states, giving many options to find labels.
  UPC labels can be dropped off at the Thrift Store or Husman’s Grocery in Presho during regular business hours. Money raised through the program will be put directly back into the community through activities sponsored by the Thrift Store throughout each year.
