After much anticipation, a wide smile spread across the 3-year-old’s face when he saw his father walk into school. Tech Sgt. Adam Moore, of New Lenox, was deployed to Qatar and then forward-deployed to Kuwait more than six months ago as a member of the National Guard and the United States Air Force. On Jan. 27, he returned to Brennan, his daughter McKayla, infant son Reid and wife April. Christ Lutheran Early Weekday School in Orland Park wanted to celebrate the return of Brennan’s father. So, they surprised Tech Sgt. Moore Feb. 8 with a parade in his honor. Tech Sgt. Adam Moore (left), of New Lenox, and his son Brennan pose for a photo after a welcome home parade. “When he came back, we wanted to do something to celebrate, because it’s a joyous time,” said Patti Bareither, Brennan’s teacher at CLEWS. “April has been talking about when he’s coming back. When I brought it up with the staff, they were all gung ho on it.” Moore was deployed just two weeks after his youngest son was born. The families at CLEWS knew how exciting this was for the family Please see CLEWS, 4 The Rev. Ray Rohlfs (far right) leads the school, and the Moore family — (left to right) April, Reid, McKayla, Adam and Brennan — in a thankful prayer Feb. 8 for Tech Sgt.

One needs to discover the underlying causes of the autoimmune disease. At this workshop I will go over, in detail, what lab testing can be done to figure out once and for all what ‘s triggering the autoimmune reaction, and what can be done naturally to support and manage the immune system and restore you to health & energy! ~Dr. Ed Beyer 17023 S Harlem Ave, Tinley Park
