A PATH TO COMFORT IN HARD TIMES: \'\'Callista \'Callie\' Wyles\'\' Gold Award project at Ministry Sacred Heart Hospital took a big step toward completion as a result of a generous donation from Bill and Linda Mark of Tomahawk. The Marks\' donation allowed 365-feet of gently-sloped pathway leading to the serenity garden to be paved with asphalt, providing wheelchair access from next to the emergency room entrance at the hospital to the site. The serenity garden is being planted with perennial flowers and is equipped with a watering system so it is low maintenance. The memorial garden features a grotto that will house pieces from the old Sacred Heart Hospital. In total about 25 pieces of the old hospital are incorporated into the stunning new memorial garden, including the old arching entryway, windowsills that have been repurposed as benches and marble signs that feature inspirational scripture. \'\'I\'m so thankful to have so many volunteers to make this possible,\'\' Wyles said in noting they will be recognized on a contributor plaque inside the grotto once work is complete. She said the hope is to have the work done in July for a ribbon-cutting ceremony the public will be invited to attend. Callie\'s twin sister, Cassandra \'\'Cassie\'\' Wyles also earned her Gold Award this year for providing her artistic talents to Wild Instincts in Rhinelander. To earn a Gold Award, a scout must invest at least 80 hours into a project that benefi ts the community. Callie estimates she has over 200 hours invested in the memorial garden project, which allowed her to be nominated for the National Women of Distinction Award that will be announced in July. Along with earning Callie the Gold Award, the new memorial garden will provide those in need at the hospital a serene place where they can go to find comfort while also preserving an important piece of Tomahawk\'s past with the pieces of the old hospital making up the site.
