Dear Bluffton News readers, We invite you to show your support of the Bluffton Public Library during our Friends of the Library Membership Drive for 2014. Your participation will highlight the importance of library resources for lifelong learning.
In 2013 the Friends provided financial support for:
- Installation of power-assisted door openers, giving “Access to All” - Children’s activities and summer reading programs - Professional meeting expenses for the staff - Refreshments and materials for library events
You can join the Friends by making a $5.00 membership donation made payable to Friends of the Bluffton Public Library. We also invite you to fill out a membership form including a few questions that will help us serve the library and community more effectively. We always appreciate new ideas and more people to help with our activities.
The Bluffton Elementary School PTO would like to say thank you to the Bluffton community, all of the businesses listed below, the elementary school staff, teachers, students, parents and families that donated their time, baked goods, and items for the classroom themed baskets and anyone else we may have forgotten that helped to support our Bakery Bingo event. This event wouldn’t be possible without you!!!

Thank you for being the coach of Bluffton H.S. football for 27 years. Thank you for doing that job in a very professional manner. Thank you for providing positive leadership for the young student athletes who played for you; for showing them what self-discipline, accepting one’s role, being responsible, and having fun winning football games, is all about.
It is rare for someone to be a head coach of a major sport of a high school for 27 years, and in those 27 years you have done a very good job. You should be proud of all the accomplishments your football program has achieved. I am sure that the dozens and dozens of former players feel good about having played for the Pirates and have learned a lot being a part of a team, and have transferred the values they learned to become successful people in life.
It affects one in five adults in the U.S. over the age of 45 and an estimated 24 million Americans, yet as many as half remain undiagnosed. It’s called COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and it is the third leading cause of death in the United States. COPD is a serious lung disease that over time makes it hard to breathe.
