Indian Lake High School SADD and Art Club members are hoping their contributions to the Windows of Hope event can help reduce stigma and raise awareness of suicide and its warning signs among our area’s young people. 

Experts say although suicides peak in the spring, the holidays are very difficult for family members, relatives or friends who have lost someone to suicide. ILHS SADD Club members Madisyn Roach, Anela Hatfield, Nikita Scheifele and Katelyn Pippin created a mountain-themed window. Meantime, ILHS Art Club members, including Kayla Richards, designed a black and white themed window with a message of love. 

The windows will be part of the “Windows of Hope” auction on Friday, December 13th from 6-7:30 pm at the Recovery Zone on St. Paris Street in Bellefontaine. During the event, businesses or individuals can purchase wood-framed windows decorated by artists from local community groups and businesses to display as a reminder of the strength and hope needed to work on recovery, prevent suicide and deal with the loss that comes from suicide. All proceeds benefit the non-profit Recovery Zone and Suicide Prevention Coalition of Logan and Champaign Counties.
