I never understand why the Quincy building inspector never mentions that building that houses Bayview Building supply. It is in worse shape than some of the fix or flatten property's and there are people going in and out every day buying building supplies. It is on 630 n 2nd, go down by the bay and look to the east.

These are "elected officials" not employees. They are not entitled to heath insurance in my thinking based on the hours they work. I do realize they put in more time than the council meeting. But they are still a long way from being full time. Why are city taxpayers being burdened with the cost of their heath care when the county and the school board do not feed at the trough? The total cost for the…

And why should this stop? It's all part of their compensation. They spend a lot more time than what you see on TV. For example, if you eliminate the health care you reduce the likelihood of a small business owner wanting to run. Plus it also means most of the council members have the same health insurance as other city employees...which seems like a jolly good idea There are two reasons…

Salvation Army Auxiliary celebrating 50th Dress an Angel project

5 months, 2 weeks ago by Denise Donley

Applications are being taken at the Family Services Center, 501 Broadway, from 1 to 4pm from now until March 20

The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary is celebrating its 50th Dress an Angel Clothing Project. 

For 50 years, the Auxiliary women have been providing a new Easter outfit and Bible for over 300 children in the Quincy area. 

Local churches, community groups, organizations and many individuals through the years have donated items and financial support for the program. 

Major Cheryl Miller, Senior Officer for the Kroc Center, said this program is needed for children in the area.

“This is an opportunity for us to share with needy children in our area who don’t have that new outfit for Easter that so many Children get. Sometimes those kids are left out and don’t get to feel as special as we want them to be. We have found this as a unique was to share God’s love with other people.”

The Salvation Army needs community support for this on-going program. The public can donate new clothing (children sizes infant to 16/18) or with a financial donation for the purchase of new clothing, Bibles and personal care items. 

Clothing and other items may be dropped off at the Kroc Center. Checks should be made out to The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary.

Applications are being taken at the Family Services Center, 501 Broadway, from 1 to 4pm from now until March 20.
