Pleasant View Rededicaton
Pictured are Mr. Bill Shaheen, the son of Mr. Sol Shaheen, and Danielle Vance of Pleasant View. Mr. Sol Shaheen was the head of the Whiteside County Board nursing home committee. This committee made the dream of Pleasant View a reality in 1974. The ten year planning committee consisted of Sol Shaheen, Norm Schuneman, Harry Hurd, Clark Stanley, and Coe Gaulrapp.
The 2011 Re-Dedication consisted of guest speakers, including: Mr. Ray Redell (long time friend of Bill Shaheen), Ms. Elise Grimes ( Sol Shaheen’s daughter), Morrison Mayor, Roger Drey, and Fr. William of St. Mary’s Parish.
Courtesy of Mr. Ray Redell, a dedication plaque is now placed in the entry way of Pleasant View. Listed on the plaque are the committee members who saw the needs of the county and community and whose dedication, passion, and hardwork is still appreciated today.
We had an estimated 80 people in the building for this great event…many of which flew in for this event.
Palm Terrace Chili Supper
On Saturday October 15 Palm Terrace held a chili supper to raise money for Operation Sleigh Ride and Shop with a Cop. We served chili and peanut butter sandwiches, had several raffles and later in the evening the band Suede played. It was a successful event and in total we raised $1800 which was split between these two organizations. We want to thank everyone who came out and helped make this a great event!
