Pancake & Sausage Breakfast
By: Burgundy Ramsey, Director of Development/Public Relations

Save the date! We will be hosting our Annual Pancake and Sausage Breakfast Fundraiser again this year! The breakfast will be on Saturday, March 9 from 7:30 am to noon in the main dining room at Good Samaritan Home! All-you-can-eat pancakes fresh off the griddle, and whole hog sausage from Kabrick’s will be served!

Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for children. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the front desk at Good Samaritan Home. Tickets will also be for sale the morning of the event.

All proceeds will help fund department “wish list” items that will help meet the needs of our residents.

If you would like to volunteer or would like more information, please contact Director of Development Burgundy Ramsey at 217-223-8717 ext. 4240 or via email at

We hope to see you there!

Prayer Request and Scripture

This week we are praying for the residents in Anna Brown Vista and for our Community Healthcare Providers.

Our Scripture of the Week is Malachi 1:11: “My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the Lord Almighty.

Quarterly Memorial Service

The Quarterly Memorial Service for residents and cottagers who died in November, December, and January will be held in the Wee Kirk Chapel on Tuesday, March 5 at 6:30 pm. All are invited to join us in remembrance.

A note from Isabelle Hillerts

The family of Isabelle Hillerts would like to say thank you to all who attended the open house on Sunday, Feb. 17. It was greatly appreciated, and a good time was had by all. God Bless.
