In Toledo Kemp Olson Park there is now a memorial to one of the greatest volunteers in Toledo's history. Esther Kalista Borte memorial is now at the park; it's a beautiful bench made out of granite. It has inscribed on it, Esther Kalista Borte, Memorial Water Park, Community Volunteer, 1926-2016, Something for the kids."
Christine Borte Mershon sat down with us to talk about her mom. If you know the Kalista or Borte families, you know they have a heart as big as one could possibly be. It's the love for the community that kept Esther in the volunteer world for so long.

Ethel Slingerland Mullens designed the Henry Hackadoo mascot for South Bend HS. It was on the cover of the 1952 Carcowan. Ethel, who graduated from SBHS in 1952, was called into the superintendent's office and asked to design a mascot. Ethel said she got the idea for Henry Hackadoo from a "squeeky toy that was sitting on the superintendent's desk and the cheerleaders had a cheer that ended with 'hack a doo, hack a doo' and that's how it came to be." Henry Hackadoo T-shirts and crewneck sweatshirts are available by contacting Joyce Kidd on Facebook at Derik Nissell Toy House, and order forms can be obtained at South Bend Pharmacy. All proceeds go to the toy house. Orders will be taken through September.
