Thanks for the ride

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Athens Limestone Public Library Foundation, I would like to thank Sheriff Mike Blakely for holding a Trail Ride for us on Sunday, Oct. 7, and donating the proceeds to our campaign to provide a new library for Athens and Limestone County.

Sheriff Blakely and his employees donated their time and lots of effort to make the Trail Ride a huge success.

We would also like to thank Neal Johnston for providing his beautiful property for the Trail Ride and our local sponsors (who are listed individually on the library website).

The proceeds will help us meet the Dekko Foundation Challenge to raise the remaining funds by Dec. 31.

Again, thank you, Sheriff Blakely and everyone who participated in the Trail Ride. We appreciate your contribution to the new library, something everyone in Athens and Limestone County will be able to benefit from and take pride in.
