To the Editor:
The holiday season, beginning with the Thanksgiving holiday and right through December, brought many extraordinary blessings. The response to the personal appeal made by Mayor Ben Blake for food items was overwhelming. The donations that were received from homemade baked goods, to non-perishable food items, paper goods, and thoughtful gifts of hats, gloves, mittens and scarves, and blankets (many of which were hand knit) were so gratefully received. Our Annual Appeal was a success as the generosity of so many in our community were reflected in the wonderful contributions that will help to enhance and sustain our programs.
