Paying it forward

Walker Barnhart, a first-grader at Prince of Peace Catholic School in Clinton, is shown with Bingo prizes that he donated to L’Arche Clinton. He may look like a little boy but he has the biggest heart for those around him, said L’Arche officials. They say Walker heard that L’Arche Clinton needed some Bingo prizes for its core members. So he asked if, for his birthday he could buy some of the items and give them to L’Arche as his birthday present to them. This is just one way Walker chooses to pay it forward: When he was learning to read he would Facetime with some of the core members and read to them for practice. He is looking forward to a post-COVID time when he can actively visit all the core members at one of their celebrations.
