The Taylorville Memorial Hospital Auxiliary hosted a new fundraiser in October – a Glow Golf event at Lakeshore Golf Course. We are pleased to report the event was a success, and that is thanks to our generous sponsors, volunteers and participants.
Proceeds from the event benefit our local hospital. Specifically, the auxiliary is fundraising to support the Taylorville Memorial Foundation’s medical technology fund. The money raised at the glow golf event will help us purchase upgrades to laboratory equipment.
In addition to the 60 people who participated in our glow golf event, we want to thank our sponsors: Carpenters Local 270, Credit Collection Partners Inc., McDonald’s Taylorville, Barb Westrick-Appleton, Tom and Kathy Fergin, CNB Bank & Trust, Martha Zimmerman, Senior Citizens of Christian County, Dr. Pavi and Amy Gill, Clavin Dairy Farms Inc., Dr. I. and Mary Kay DeValle, First National Bank of Taylorville, Kerri Austwick-Edward Jones, Jim and Jane Davis, Mr. and Mrs. Phil Treuthart, Susan Pearce, Kathy Morgan and Pepsi. We also thank Louise Noren, Donna Castelli, Kathy Morgan, Becky Morrow, Debbie Johnson, Jan Vaughan, Kathy Mansfield, Janell Foor, Shay Broux, Misty Fry, Carla Mickey and Kerri Austwick for their help at the event. Last, but not least, a special thanks to Jason Boldig and his staff at Lakeshore Golf Course.
The auxiliary could not operate without the help of our community. We are grateful for all who support our local hospital through the Taylorville Memorial Hospital Auxiliary.

Does anyone have any confidence in the Biden Administration’s abilities to effectively deal with the ongoing situations: the Russian build up at the Ukrainian border; China’s aggressive actions regarding Taiwan; and the Iranian pursuit of nukes! These aren’t long range challenges, but in fact near term crises! And if you think that the Russian’s and Chinese aren’t talking, you could be as inept as the Biden Administration!
With the Biden Administration’s Foreign Policy and National Security track record, you can only project another FAILURE. His nearly five decades in Washington, a majority in the Senate – the same Senate that the constitution gave so much Foreign Policy responsibility, hasn’t prepared him for this. Secretary Blinken is also over his head, remember the way the junior level Chinese Diplomats pushed him around in Alaska?
I am praying that the Ukrainian’s aren’t banking their sovereignty on the Biden Administration! Hopefully they have read former Secretary Bob Gates book, so they won’t be surprised that Biden will be wrong again!
But these impending crises aren’t just due to the Biden Administration, keep in mind we’ve got two senators (Durbin and Duckworth), who have shown no backbone in calling out this administration’s first eleven months of failures! These two party and checkbook first, senators provide nothing more to the Biden Administration than the old bobble head dog in the back dash of grandpa’s sedan! It is time for the self-serving, hypocrite, incompetent, millionaire political elitist’s Senators Durbin and Duckworth to go! It is time for patriotic, hard working, common sense Leadership in Washington!
