County residents deserve thanks

Dear Editor:

The officers and members of Bethel, Tenn., Lodge No. 194 F&AM want to thank you and your staff for publishing our fundraising notices in the Limestone Ledger section of your paper.

We also want to thank the citizens of Limestone County for attending these fundraising events.

At the beginning of each year, starting in 2005, the members of this lodge made a pledge to donate at least $100 per member to charities. With your help we have exceeded that goal each year.

At our November breakfast, we honored our military veterans by having them as our guests. Fifty came to join in the celebration. These brave men and women deserve our respect for: “A veteran is someone who at one point in his or her life wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America for the amount of ‘up to and including his or her life.’ That is honor, and there are way too many who no longer understand it.”

At each of our breakfasts we treat widows of Masons and give away a door prize.

We appreciate the support you and the citizens of Limestone County have given us.

Again, thanks to all of you.


Charles E. Fergus, treasurer
