To The Editor:
As this year draws to its end, I hope that everyone was able to rejoice in the simple pleasures that life has to offer, and was blessed with smiles and love from those close in your lives. I hope that you were able to make many memories that you will be able to look back on with fondness and at leisure.
I once again want to say what an amazing job people have done to help the Village to be able to accomplish once again for the fifth year, with toys and donations. I am so privileged to be able to organize this on behalf of the police department to help children and families that may be struggling with this holiday season. But if it was not for the following people this would not be possible to do.
Thanks so much to: Noah Hickman with H&H Retreading, Art Saylor Logging, Ethel Snyder, Crystal and Dick Davis and the Tobacco Station, Denver Wolford and Main Express, Jon Cherrington and JVC Metals, Eric Williams, Jennie Canter, Jackson Implement, Judy Brooks, Missy and Scott Strickland and Strickland Sales, Piggly Wiggly, Alice Skidmore, Kay and Ed Whitt, Diane Thomas, Mr. and Mrs. Danny Boggs, Bob Whitt, Jean Grey, Bradley and Kirsten Davis, Rob and Sharilyn Leonard. Thanks to Dollar General once again for allowing us to have a drop-off box there and to all of the wonderful customers who donated. To Family Dollar for coming up with the idea to have their wonderful customers buy stockings, and small toys to stuff the stockings. And thanks to my helpful elves, Kim Staley and Michelle Cattee for wrapping all the presents that were here! And if I have forgotten anyone I am truly sorry. I appreciate everything that you all have done.
With the help of the above people we were able to help more than 35 families and close to 80 children. I am so very proud of how well everyone comes together to pitch in to help those in need. As the New Year approaches us I want to wish you all a Happy New Year from the bottom of my heart. May God give you the happiness and strength to overcome any of this year's difficulties. I wish you a wonderful January, a lovely February, a peaceful March, a stress-free April, a fun-filled May, and joy that lasts from June to November and finally a happy December, and I hope that your wishes come true and may you have a charming and lucky New Year 2017!
Samantha Brooks, Clerk of Courts, On behalf of the Oak Hill Police Department
