July/Aug 2018 • 22 Choices Life Resource Center GALA ATTRACTS LOVING SUPPORTERS Guests at the annual Choices Life Resource Center fund-raising gala were enthralled and inspired by speaker Chet McDoniel of Ft. Worth, Texas, who addressed the crowd along with his father, the Rev. Dr. Jim McDoniel. Having been born with no arms and short- ened legs, Chet chose to be happy, an encouraging message for all. Thanks to generous donors, the New Albany- and Corydon-based regional non-profit offers direction, compassion, clothing, and necessary items to those struggling with difficult decisions in areas of women's services, spiritual growth, step-up parenting, and sexual health.

Your Community presented by These pages are sponsored by Idealogy Center for Cultural Resources / IU Southeast GEM ON CAMPUS ENRICHES ALL AGES Displays of cultures throughout the world attracted the community to the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Center for Cul- tural Resources (CCR) at Indiana University Southeast this spring. Thousands of artifacts, all donated, have been shared with more than 5,000 IUS students, community educators, and schools in several counties in Southern Indiana and Kentucky since opening in 1993. Hundreds of interactive take-out kits are loaned to classrooms, offering first-hand cultural enrichment to stu- dents. The CCR's theme of "Diversity in Unity--Unity in Diversity" comes alive for all ages through this valuable resource in the campus Library Building.
