Toy Drive success

TO THE EDITOR: The sixth-annual Holiday Toy Drive, sponsored by M&M Diner, was once again a huge success for our small community.

An abundance of private citizens were extremely gracious in spreading holiday cheer throughout the town by donating a toy for a boy or girl or making a monetary contribution to assist with the purchase of Christmas gifts.

I would like to take this opportunity in thanking the citizens residing in the townships of Jay and Black Brook for their continued support toward a much-needed holiday event in our community. I also wish to thank everyone who participated in the bake sale and bottle drive that was hosted in November. The event was a great start in reaching my fundraising goal.

Much thanks and appreciation is extended to these organizations and businesses: American Legion Post 504, AuSable Forks Fire Department’s Women’s Auxiliary, Christina Brown’s Zumba Fitness Club, Northline Utilities & Gordon Oil Co.

A special thank you to Sharon McGarr for her annual donation of a holiday-themed lighted glass block that is raffled off to raise money for the Toy Drive.

Posthumous recognition is extended to the Ryan Slater, owner of Green Dog Landscaping and Design, and a heartfelt thank you to his mother, Dorothy Changelo, for their donation of a variety of homemade baked breads for the bake sale.

In conclusion, I am very humbled by the amount of support I receive during the holiday season. As many townspeople were out and about shopping and preparing their itinerary of holiday traditions, they took time out to extend a helping hand to those in need.

Amazing coach

TO THE EDITOR: Clinton Community College is going to advertise for a new women’s soccer and basketball coach. They have no idea what they are losing.
