John Shannon Volunteered
For CHS Donation
I have attached a letter from PSO telling of the $150 donation to CHS in honor of John Shannon. Upon retiring from PSO, he performed volunteer hours here at the H.S. which resulted in the donation to the high school. Thanks, Cory A. Slagle, CHS Principal (4/24/2009)

Dear John:

Congratulations. Your application for an AEP Connects grant has been approved. I am pleased to provide this contribution to Collinsville High School in recognition of the wonderful volunteer service that you have provided.

At PSO, we are grateful for the impact that our employees and retiree volunteers make in our communities. Personally, I'm proud that our company supports volunteerism by providing 'dollars for doers' for volunteers like you.

Afghan For Aidan

This month we are raffling off an afghan created specifically for them by my wife, Erin. You get to pick the color(s) and style(s) that interest you. She will then work with you to come up with a design. The design will determine how long it will take to complete the afghan. You will have until the end of the year to redeem your prize.
To enter, simply go to our online store ( to purchase your chances. You can buy 1 chance for $1 or 6 chances for $5. If you pay by PayPal, your entries will be guaranteed. You can pay by mail, but your entries will not be added until payment is received. Entries and payments will be accepted until April 30th. The drawing will occur on May 1st after 5PM Eastern time. If you pay by mail and your payment does not get to us in time, don't worry; you will be entered into our May raffle (details on that to come on May 1).

Also, we are doing a silent auction for a hearts afghan Erin made (pics on the blog -- see entry for April 23). We'll take bids on it until 4/30/09. Email your bids to and put "afghan" in the subject line. The winner will be announced on May 1st, when we also announce the winner of the raffle.
Thanks! -- Russell Wright (4/27/2009)
