Lewis House of Pancakes strengthens dorm community

first_imgFor a $5 fee starting Friday at 9:30 p.m., Lewis Hall will host their annual charity event, the Lewis House of Pancakes (LHOP), providing an all-you-can eat breakfast buffet with different foods on every floor. The residents serve not only pancakes, but bacon, eggs, juice and cinnamon rolls as well.All proceeds from LHOP go to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana, an organization that serves the South Bend community. According to the Food Bank’s website, they donated seven million pounds of food to local agencies in 2016 alone. Lewis’ involvement with the Food Bank doesn’t stop with LHOP.“It’s for a really good cause,” sophomore Amanda Bono, one of the LHOP chairs, said. “Last year, we had a group of girls volunteer there afterwards, to see what the Food Bank was like, and we’re going to try to do that again.”Bono and her fellow organizer, sophomore Sarah Duehren, estimated that about 1,000 people attended last year’s LHOP, and Duehren said they’ve set a goal to beat that number tonight.“It’s open to the public, but it’s mostly students that come,” Duehren said. “We’re hoping to exceed that number this year.”The residents of Lewis Hall are very passionate about this event, Bono said, which they believe builds dorm spirit.“The girls honestly love it,” she said. “The reason that I wanted to help run it this year was because I had such a great time last year.”Freshman Rachel Duffy expressed enthusiasm for the upcoming event, which will be her first LHOP. “I’m really excited that we’re going to get a lot of people to come out and beat last year’s record, and raise money for charity,” Duffy said.Duehren remarked that the participation and interest around LHOP represents a bigger part of Lewis Hall.“It goes to show how strong the community is, because everybody’s so excited to be a part of it,” Duehren said.Lewis is located northwest of the Main Building, near Saint Joseph’s Lake. The residents of Lewis highly encourage everyone to come with their friends and donate to a worthy cause.“If you’re on the fence about coming, I think that if you’re a person who appreciates breakfast food — and who appreciates charity, who appreciates community — then this is the place for you,” Duffy said.Duehren added that LHOP doesn’t have to be a night-long commitment.“I hope everyone can come out, and even if you’re there for five minutes, it’s worth coming out and seeing,” she said. “And it’s for a really good cause.”Tags: Breakfast, lewis hall, LHOP, signature eventlast_img read more

Busy day at National Convention

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The 91st National FFA Convention continues today in Indianapolis. We’re sure there’s several tired FFA members at this morning’s general session after last night’s special Garth Brooks concert.Joel Penhorwood caught up with Ohio FFA president Kolesen McCoy backstage after the first session of the day. In addition to his role as president, Kolesen is serving as a delegate at the National Convention.“Being a delegate this year consists of quite a bit of responsibility. The delegate body, which consists of delegates based on the membership of each state, comes to the national convention to discuss six general committees presented to the board of directors for the National FFA,” McCoy said. “This year I am serving as the chair for the committee on technology and social media. So I am really looking forward to that. We are looking forward to our first business session and seeing what we can accomplish there and what committee reports we can bring to the board of directors. We are also looking at discussing membership dues increases to help fund the organization as a big discussion as well. We are looking for some heated debate on that one as well as a productive discussion.”In addition, to commemorate 75 years of partnership with the National FFA Organization, John Deere is providing a $75,000 contribution to the FFA Living to Serve Platform. The funds are in addition to the wide range of support for FFA activities already sponsored by Deere.Sam Allen, Deere & Company chairman and CEO, announced the contribution as a keynote speaker.“The Living to Serve Platform inspires FFA members to put leadership into action through service activities and prepare them to be responsible leaders in agriculture and many other professions in the future,” Allen said.The Deere contribution provides support for FFA chapters to build stronger communities through various service projects that address environmental responsibility, hunger, health and nutrition, community safety, and community engagement.Since it first made a $1,000 contribution in 1943, John Deere has provided funds totaling more than $13 million to the National FFA Organization. Deere sponsors a wide range of FFA activities, including a John Deere dealer scholarship program, the farm business management career development competition, and the international leadership seminar for state officers.last_img read more

Prepping for Spray Foam

Log in Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.center_img Spray-foam insulation is gaining popularity these days, and for good reason. Not only does it offer lots of R-value per inch, but it also air-seals the house. I’ve been building custom homes in North Carolina for more than 20 years, and I’ve been using spray-foam insulation for the past four. These days, all my projects get 8 in. to 12 in. of foam under the roof deck, and I often use foam to insulate walls and crawlspaces as well.Prepping for the spray-foam crew is now just another part of the building process, but it took some time and a lot of stained shingles and concrete for me to figure out the learning curve. Along the way, I discovered that the first hurdle in using spray-foam insulation might just be working with the building inspector. Venting, fire safety, and building officials The first time I insulated an attic with spray foam, the building inspector asked me to supply a letter from my structural engineer stating that the roof framing was strong enough to support the weight of the foam. That might have been the most extreme case of an inspector being misinformed about the properties and benefits of spray-foam insulation, but it wasn’t an isolated case.Code officials in my area value ventilation in attics and crawlspaces so much that they have a hard time with the thought of sealing these areas with foam. So if I’m planning to spray the underside of a roof deck or a crawlspace, I talk to the building inspector during the permitting process to make sure he’s OK with not venting either space.The most common speed bump I run into during these conversations involves roof venting and shingle warranties. If the spray-foam insulation will void the… last_img read more

Lumber from a Bandsaw Mill

first_img Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details. Let’s say that you own a piece of land and you want to build a house. If you live in a forested region, the first step is to cut down enough trees to create the needed open space for your foundation, lawn, and driveway.As you’re cutting down the trees, you may think to yourself, “I’m going to need to buy lumber to build my house. I wonder if these logs can be milled into 2x6s and 2x10s.” The answer is: they probably can.If you live in a rural area, someone in your town probably owns a portable bandsaw mill. This type of mill can be transported to your site, and in just a day or two, the mill will transform your logs into piles of framing lumber and boards. Local lumber for local needs Over the past 40 years, my friends and I have built lots of buildings with green lumber, including homes, garages, barns, and sheds. Many of these buildings were framed with lumber milled by Leslie Ham.When I moved to this corner of Vermont in the mid-1970s, Leslie ran a local cabinet shop. In 1995, Leslie decided to switch careers, and he bought a Wood Mizer bandsaw mill. He’s been a sawyer ever since.Leslie is hard-working. He thinks before he speaks. Like many older Vermonters, he’s inclined to be thrifty with both money and words.According to the old saying, when a farmer slaughters a pig, nothing is wasted: the aim is to use “everything but the squeal.” Leslie applies the same philosophy to trees. His sawdust is bartered or sold for bedding. Leslie has a sugaring operation, and his two vocations are complementary.

first_imgMayors of Srinagar and Jammu civic bodies have been granted a status equivalent to that of Ministers of State (MoS), according to an official order.The order, issued by Additional Secretary Subash Chhibber on August 20, said the hospitality and protocol department shall make necessary insertion in the J&K State Warrant of Precedence with the approval of the competent authority.“Sanction is hereby accorded to the grant of status equivalent to Minister of State (MoS) to the Mayors of SMC (Srinagar Municipal Corporation) and JMC (Jammu Municipal Corporation) within their territorial jurisdiction,” the order said.The elections for the municipal corporations were held in four phases in October last year after a gap of 13 years.People’s Conference leader Junaid Mattu and BJP leader Chander Mohan Gupta are the Mayors of SMC and JMC, respectively.On August 5, the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre scrapped the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and split it into two Union Territories—Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.last_img read more

Elite complete quarterfinals cast

first_imgBlackwater import Henry Walker collides with GlobalPort’s Sean Anthony in Sunday’s PBA Governors’ Cup game at Ynares Center in Antipolo. —AUGUST DELA CRUZANTIPOLO—Allein Maliksi had an impressive debut and Henry Walker held Blackwater together yet again as the Elite tripped GlobalPort on Sunday night, hastening the completion of the quarterfinal cast of the PBA Governors’ Cup.Acquired from Star just a few days back, Maliksi scored 22 points and Walker flirted with a triple double as the Elite led early before holding on for a 118-107 decision of the Batang Pier at Ynares Center here that left the rest of the elimination round as games for qualifiers to improve on their current rankings.In rising to 5-5, the Elite not only shut the door on the Batang Pier but also on the idle Alaska Aces, both with 3-7 cards.ADVERTISEMENT The Aces will be clashing with Rain or Shine on Wednesday with the game carrying a lot of weight for the Elasto Painters who, like the Elite, would want to avoid clashing with the top seed in the quarterfinals.As things stand, Rain or Shine has Alaska and then Blackwater to close out its elimination round schedule. That match happens Saturday with the loser dropping toNo. 8 and having the unenviable task of beating No. 1 two straight times.“We need (to win) to improve our standings,” Blackwater coach Leo Isaac said.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutIn the nightcap, TNT KaTropa outlasted Star, 104-99, to improve to 7-3 and tie idle NLEX in third place.Star and Rain or Shine share 5-4 marks.Isaac’s entire starting unit finished with twin digits in scoring and Dave Marcelo, another new recruit acquired from Barangay Ginebra, came off the bench to scatter 13 for the Elite, who led by as much as 21 points in the third period.
