Not From NHCC
The New Hope Crisis Center (NHCC) Board of Directors would like to acknowledge the comments and concerns that arose due to recent statements that were made by Annette Macfarlane at the Tremonton City Council meeting on March 5, 2013.
As a Board of Directors, we would like to convey that the remarks made by Ms. Macfarlane during this public forum do not represent the point of view of the NHCC or its Board of Directors. The NHCC proudly supports and services all races, genders and ethnicities. We are grateful for ethnic diversity and different cultures in our community, which bring with them great strengths and attributes to our county. We also respect and appreciate municipal and county officials who have tirelessly attempted to improve the economy and employment opportunities in Box Elder County.
This matter is being addressed, and future steps will be taken to avoid any further damage or hard feelings. We apologize for any and all harm that was felt due to those unfortunate comments. We look forward to moving past any negativity this situation has caused.
As a board we have witnessed the growth and success of the NHCC under the direction of Ms. Macfarlane. The NHCC is a non-profit organization that offers assistance, support, and numerous educational programs in a non-discriminatory setting. The NHCC has a strong history of servicing those who have been victims of domestic violence. Ms. Macfarlane and the NHCC staff have worked tirelessly to provide education and solutions to our community in order to move in a direction of preventing domestic violence, instead of dealing with the consequences of it.
We look forward to continuing to provide assistance and support to all people, of every ethnic descent, who suffer from the evils caused by domestic violence.
Everyone is invited to attend an open house celebrating the 50th anniversary of the dedication of the Brigham City Utah North Stake Center. The open house will be held on May 18, from 2- 5 p.m., at the stake center located at 620 N. 300 E., in Brigham City.
The stake center was constructed in 1962-63, with the help of local volunteer labor. It was partially furnished with lumber recovered from a Box Elder County train wreck that happened during the construction period.
A sealed box was placed behind the cornerstone. Instructions were left to open the box on the anniversary of the laying of the cornerstone. This date conflicted with the completion of the Brigham City Temple; therefore the opening of the box was rescheduled to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the stake center dedication.
Contained within the box are photos of stake leaders and officers, as well as issues of newspapers from the Box Elder News, the Box Elder Journal and the Deseret News. There are also unopened packets that are to be delivered to the ward leaders of the following wards: Brigham City 3rd, 4th, 7th, 8th, 12th, 13th and 14th. Also packets are included for Corinne 1st and 2nd, Harper, Bear River and Honeyville 1st and 2nd wards. These packets contain family photos that are to be distributed by the ward leaders to the family or next of kin.
It is intended that the open house be low keyed, with an opportunity to mingle, reflect and share your memories and perhaps renew old acquaintances. Please come and join us.
If you would like to share your memories of the construction or dedication, either physical, written or verbal, please contact Greg Putnam, 734-9751, or at email@example.com
On behalf of Honeyville City and the Central Box Elder Fire Special Service District, we would like to thank Smith and Edwards, Walker Theater, Bank of Utah, McDonalds, Burger King and Walmart and “Just Grandma” for their generous donations.
Your contributions made it possible for us to have a successful Easter egg hunt for all the kids in our community.
The Tremonton Fire Department Auxiliary would like to thank you so much for your quilt donations from the past years. We have been able to donate several quilts to the burn center.
We are hoping for more quilts this year. These quilts are donated to the University of Utah Burn Center to comfort burn victims. We need any size, from adult lap quilts to children’s size. The quilts should be tied and can be made of any fabric.
If you would like to donate or have any questions, please call Kelli Westergard, 257-7843, or Sharri Oyler 279-7343. We need to have the quilts by June 1. Thank you for your help.
