To the Editor:
On behalf of the Carroll County Community Hospice Christmas Store, I want to publicly thank all the wonderful folk who contributed so much to the opening weekend of our store. Rosebud Mining Co. graciously donated the building and cost of utilities for three months; the Civic members transported multiple truckloads and a trailer load of our Christmas boxes from storage units to our new location. We couldn’t have done it without them! These people have unbelievable energy and community spirit!

Ace Hardware donated the paint and supplies, the FFA camp donated the use of tables to display our items and Jim Butuler and Russell Henderson hauled them to the store. “Build for Pottsy” made special metal work for our displays and Ulman’s Bakery made delicious treats. Thanks also to all the selfless volunteers who worked tirelessly for a month getting the store ready, including Carol Vanfossen, Cheri Bell, Diane Leslie, Ursala Lincoln, Doris Logan, Marsha Logan and Barb Loomis.

However, mostly I want to acknowledge our appreciation of the community for all the generous donations made all year and whose donations are still coming into the store. I thank you and Hospice thanks you.

Gwen Potts
