Client Spotlight

7a974086-62b5-4189-bece-793e9f1d6c77When Loraine Smith isn’t keeping things running smoothly at the Smiths’ dental practice,Healthpark Dentistry, located just north of Dayton, you’ll find her walking in her neighborhood or hard at work at her hobby, quilting!  Loraine’s brightly colored and contemporary quilts have found their way into the local newspapers, hospitals, and even into Mark and Clint’s babies’ cribs!

A charity that Loraine is passionate about is Project Linus, which provides handmade blankets to seriously ill or traumatized children.  These “security blankets” can provide color and fun in what can be a sterile hospital environment.  If you feel so moved, Loraine estimates it takes a $50-$75 donation to Project Linus to provide the materials for a child’s quilt.

For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.  Click here for more.
