Dear Editor,
    The Blue Star Mothers of America Southwest Mich-igan Chapter 179 recently shipped 134 boxes, loaded with Christmas stockings, pillow cases, oreo cookies, peanut butter and jelly, caramel corn, magazines, wipes, and cards and letters, hand-made by students in our local schools and members of the community, to service men and women deployed away from home over the holidays. This was the most boxes we have ever packed for our Christmas shipment, and we did it with more volunteers than ever before.
    We are so incredibly grateful to our community for your support of our mission to bring a little bit of home and holiday cheer to our troops.  We estimate that the boxes we sent will be shared by more than 1,072 service members.
    We thank those who donated to our project, and those who helped pack the boxes. It is your contributions that made us successful. We could never have done this without you!
    We are committed to projects which help raise the morale of our troops and bring more support to America’s active military and service men and women, as well as veterans, and their families.  We are planning another, smaller shipment in June; so, we encourage you to keep donating!
    With sincere gratitude,
    Blue Star Mothers
    of America

Dear Editor,
    On behalf of the Porter Busy Fingers 4-H club, we would like to deeply thank D. Coy Duck, Rich Johnson, general manager; Big T., Cathy and Ray Piecyk; Progressive - Motter Insurance, Kathy Gumper and Amie Moore; and Jaspare’s Pizza, Mike Brocman and Joseph Taylor. These businesses have always been huge supporters of our group. We could not do all the wonderful things we do for our kids without their support.
    We wish them a “merry Christmas,” and continued success in the New Year.
    Thank you,
    Porter Busy Fingers
