Medical services are excellent

Dear Editor:


During the season of gifts and giving, I think of the number of people who have given to us their time, medical knowledge, compassion, and services.

Words cannot express my sincere appreciation and thanks to Athens-Limestone Hospital and Athens Rehabilitation and SeniorCare for all the services they have given to my sick husband during his illness since September 2, 2012. We are most fortunate to have these excellent services in Athens.

Sincerely,

Argent Thomas

Public supports toy drive

Dear Editor:


I would like to take a moment to say thank you to the community for supporting the toy drive we had this year. With your donations we were able to help 20 children in the Owens community have toys for Christmas.

Thank you also to Mrs. Holt at Owens Elementary School, Kathy and her team at the Dollar General Store on Hwy. 99, and The News Courier for advertising the toy drive in the Limestone Ledger.

The two days spent in the parking lot of the Dollar General Store were special to the members of our department. We not only saw old friends, but also made some new ones. We saw parents teaching children to help those in need. It has been a wonderful, heartwarming experience that we hope to make an annual event.

Thanks again, and from our family at the Owens Volunteer Fire Department to you and your family, we hope you had a safe and merry Christmas and will have a happy new year .
