Dear Editor:The American Legion Auxiliary, Unit 32, would like to thank the people of Newton County for showing their love for our troops by bringing items to the Covington Square on June 30 for our county-wide collection day for Operation Sandbox. The response was overwhelming. A tremendous amount of needed items were brought, monetary contributions were made and many cards were written to the soldiers. The donations made that day will bring a touch of home to our soldiers far away and hopefully bring smiles to their faces.
It is wonderful to live in a community where people care and open their hearts to help others. Please continue to offer your prayers for the safe return of our troops. Thank you very much.
