To the Editor:
For the past several years, the Women’s Auxilary to the Knox Volunteer Fire Department has been sending packages to our men and women in the military overseas.
Our events held to support funding our “We Care” program include: the Memorial Day Bake Sale, Town-wide Garage/Lawn Sale, various dinners, and private donations.
During the past seven years, Mary Sherman reported that 445 packages have been sent. Each box weighed approximately 25 pounds, totaling 11,000 pounds or more than five tons. Postage for these packages amounted to $6,210.48.
During the Christmas holiday, Christmas trees and decorations, filled stockings, gifts, cookies, brownies, fudge, and of course candy canes were sent.
In order to continue this valuable service to our military, we need help with donations and items. For further information concerning this program, please call Mary Sherman at 895-2795. Thank you for your support.
Again, “We Care.”
