What a fun way to celebrate the life and legacy of America's favorite Grandma, Betty White! Today would've been her 100th Birthday and many are participating in what has been named the #BettyWhiteChallenge. People are encouraged to make a $5 donation to a local rescue or animal shelter in her name. No donation is too big or too small. If you cannot afford $5, give what you can. Every dollar helps make a difference in the lives of the animals.
Donations to the Elwood Animal Shelter can be dropped off in the utility drop box across from the municipal building (please notate Animal Shelter Donation on envelope) or they can be made by mailing them to:

Today, we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who believed all men are created equal and should enjoy the same rights and privileges. His life's work impacted not only his generation but still continues to impact us today decades after his death. His face and name are synonymous with peace and equality. His words continue to give us hope for the future.
Not only today, but every day, may we as the Citizens of Elwood, pay homage to the dreams and visions of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by working together to strengthen our community, continue to break down barriers, and by spreading love not hatred.
"Hate is too great a burden to bear. I have decided to love."
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
