CREATIVE CARING HEARTS AND CULVERS
Please save Tuesday, January 20, for another Culver’s 10% Night. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate. Let’s get the word out at the churches and schools, so more people come to eat at Culver’s that night! 
GETTING TO KNOW: 
CHAR HEGER
One day in the late 1990’s, I sat getting my hair cut by Char and telling her about the idea of making layettes for the area hospitals. By the end of the haircut, Char’s enthusiastic ideas had created a true game plan, and we were on the way! Char has been in CCH since the beginning (obviously), getting quilting guilds involved, spreading the word at the beauty shop, and sewing, sewing, sewing! Char is a wife, a mom to four, and a grandmother to six. She is a bundle of sewing and quilting energy and has gotten her mom (Edna Heschke) and sister (Jeanne Christensen) also involved in CCH! Char, we are so thankful for you!
