April Rahn was born in the month of April and has a "springtime" shine in her eyes when she talks about her interests and activities. April lives in Millstadt with her parents and has one brother, Joel and a nephew, Jacob. Jacob is 3 yrs old and just finished playing T-Ball. It's easy to see how much she loves her family! Recently Courtney Hoernis, Colleen Nesbit and Lindsey Petterson (along with Cindy Petterson and Cathy Nesbit) had dinner with April and we got to know some interesting things about her.

April told us about her collections. She has a large collection of costume jewelry which made her smile. She also told us of her interest in collecting Dreamcatchers. Dreamcatchers are homemade and have a hoop surrounding a web. Feathers and beads are hung from the hoop. April explained that the Cherokee Indians made dreamcatchers. The Medicine Man believed that the web of the dreamcatcher would fight off nightmares and take away fear. April has a collection of Magic Books and learned about the dreamcatchers.
April has many interests and many friends in PTOEC. She loves her LINC Art class and enjoys learning more about Art at Trinity Services in Mascoutah where she attends 2 days a week. April has much to offer and as Courtney says "she is nice and a good friend". Thanks Courtney, Colleen and Lindsey for helping us get to know April better! We will see you at the Bowling Alley, April on Wednesdays during PTOEC Bowling season!
April loves Special Olympics because it is fun, you get to meet new people, you get medals, and it challenges her to use her good sportsmanship.
