 Don't we have a lovely flagpole and doesn't the flag always look great? It just takes care of itself, right?

Elf of the Week: Sam at Mr Mikey's

This weeks Elf of the Week is Sam at Mr Mikey's.   Besides obvious things like the use of their parking lot for blood drives and fair organizers, I am always hearing of small nice things they do (I wish I had written them all down.)

Elf of the Week: Noa Kanetchmer
Noa can be found selling sodas and candy and making popcorn nearly every Saturday night at the Essanay Silent Film Museum. What started as fulfillment of school community service hours became an ongoing dedication to service. She is a great example of one of the many elves around town who unobtrusively make things better. Thank you Noa.

Elf of the Week: Catherine B Stuart of Nibble and Sip
I observed Catherine do something particularly elfish. It was the last week of the train of lights and all trains were sold out long before. A visitor was inquiring about the possibility of getting tickets for her and 5 others. We all knew that this very likely was not going to be possible. The visitor was also confused about how to get to the ticket station and did not seem to be understanding any of the explanations. In response, Catherine closed her store while she drove the visitor to the ticket booth. Even though Catherine knew that the visitor would almost certainly not get the tickets, she still none the less brightened that visitor's day at the expense of her own business. That is selfless kindness and in so doing Catherine showed her elfness.

Niles Elf of the Week -- Ken Lippman

The Niles Elf of this week is Ken Lippman.  He epitomizes Niles elfness in that he steadily contributes and never wants credit. All he wants to do is to help and see things are done right.

It is quite possible that you have not noticed Ken, elves do tend to shy away from the limelight, but if you want to find him, find a passenger train boarding in Niles. Where there is a train there is almost always Ken helping visitors find parking and helping them get safely to the train, offering his time and gentle smiles.
