SH4C membership continues to grow each month – mainly through word of mouth; evidence that good news and good work travels! This year we believe that we have drawn well over 1,000 people to the area between the various planned SH4C events.

A special thank you to Maplewood at Newtown and Cascades at Bethel Health Care. These businesses alternate in providing us with a place to hold our monthly meetings (8:00 AM the first Wednesday of the month) and even include breakfast as well! You guys are awesome!
November and December 2011 were busy months for the Stony Hill Four Corners business association!
- PANCAKE BREAKFAST / AMBULANCE FUNDRAISER
The Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Department Pancake Breakfast scheduled for October was pushed into November by a freak snowstorm that downed power lines all throughout the area. In spite of, or maybe because of the cancellation of Halloween for so many kids – the turnout was the best yet. Because EVERYTHING was donated, there was a record $2,500 raised for the ambulance fund!
- FOOD DRIVE & TREE LIGHTING in STONY HILL
The Stony Hill and Hawleyville Volunteer Fire Companies collected over 3,000 lbs. of foodthe weekend before Thanksgiving, and was followed by the Stony Hill Tree Lighting with a special appearance by Santa and Mrs. Claus. The giving didn’t stop there. For weeks afterwards members of the community who were unable to attend that weekend dropped off food at Union Savings Bank. A very memorable moment occurred when a woman stopped in the branch looking for someone involved with SH4C. She explained that she and her husband had heard about our grass roots efforts, liked how and what SH4C did and wanted to make a donation. She then delivered a check for $1000.00 making it payable to Brother Hood in action. When it was explained to her how far this money would go in that Brother Hood in action would be able to purchase food/goods at a greatly reduced rate, she started crying. She said that before coming to make the donation she and her husband had prayed that this money would multiply and was overwhelmed in learning that it immediately would.It is stories like hers that keeps SH4C members inspired and wanting to do more to give back.
