To the editor:
Greene County businesses and residents have done it again. With all the negativity going on around the world, you should all be proud on helping to make the 2018 Senior Angels Campaign another one of our GREAT accomplishments.
Whether you volunteered at our Thanksgiving Dinner, (by the way, another huge success; 111 people attended and enjoyed a great day), worked at our bake sale (raising $800 a RECORD BREAKER), came to our table at the Victorian Stroll, helped us shop and/or wrap presents, or simply wrote a check, we thank you. We would especially like to thank the Legislators for their continued support through The Wayne C. Speenburgh Grant, CDPHP, Coxsackie-Athens Rotary Club and the members of the 4H Evarts Engineers, 4H Greene Earth, Library Science Club and the DR Evarts Library for contributing the delicious muffins that were made from 8 fresh pumpkins from the Athens pumpkin parade.
As of the writing of this letter, we have raised $16,706.65. A new record. Thanks to your generosity, we have broken all past records. With your continued help, we look forward to breaking this year’s record in 2019.
If you would like to continue to help Greene County Senior Citizens, we accept contributions at any time for our emergency funds that we make available to our Senior Citizens year round.
It is such a pleasure for us to help our Senior Citizens year after year. This holiday season, we delivered gifts to more than 250 Senior Citizens throughout Greene County. The smiles on their faces when we show up with their very own wrapped gift is priceless.
So we would like to wish each and every one of you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019, and as always:
And as always, remember to thank a Senior Citizen, if it wasn’t for them paving the way, we would have no roads to guide us.
