    Lester Belk smiles a lot.
    He smiles when you ask him about how his relationship with his wife changed since he began dialysis.
    “Going through all of this made me and my wife’s relationship stronger,” Belk said. “She was always by my side, no matter what or no matter how tired she was.”

  • March is Youth Art Month, and the Springs House Galleries on West Gay Street will be filled with artwork by our very own Lancaster County School District students. 
    Also, the Main Street banners and art cubes on the Springs House lawn are there for all to see and enjoy.  
    These projects are a huge collaboration of our Kennedy Center Partnership, which is coordinated by local sculptor Bob Doster. We are most grateful for all the support. Please visit the galleries in the upcoming days to see the creativity shown by our children.

  • When members of the Quilt A Holics quilting group found themselves looking for a new project, they chose to make a Quilt of Valor. Members made blocks on their own, then they put them together to form a quilt.
    Since June 2015, the group has made five quilts.
    These quilts were presented on Wednesday to Sun City residents and World War II veterans Fred Banks, Pat Cassetta, Donald Comstock, Jack Shumaker and Dollie Steele.
