► Bravo to the Senior Companions program, which teams up senior volunteers with seniors who identify as lonely, homebound, isolated or disabled. The program is operated by Lutheran Social Services and serves about 650 people throughout the state.

► Bravo to Eventide Jamestown, which spearheaded a drive to give 10 decorated artificial Christmas trees to area families in need. And bravo to the businesses, organizations and individuals who contributed to the project through sponsorships or decorations for the trees.

► Bravo to the Jimmies volleyball team for advancing to the 16-team elimination bracket of the NAIA Women’s Volleyball National Championship tournament for the first time in history. The team lost to second-ranked Viterbo University in Wisconsin in the opening round.
