Local dentist thanks community for support

-A A +A

We wanted to express our thanks and gratitude for the many people who participated in our 2nd annual CANDY-BUY-BACK “Treats for our Troops” event. Special thanks go out to the Spencer County Track & Cross Country members who volunteered their time and talents at the face painting table and other areas.

Bill Greenwell and the Knights of Columbus donated many cases of Tootsie Rolls for distribution and Hillcrest Center in Louisville made a huge donation of candy, as well.

Mrs. Laurie Robinson and her family were kind enough to arrange shipment of many of our boxes with outgoing troop supplies. These were distributed to our troops all over Afghanistan.

We received candy and support from people in Indiana, and distant areas of Kentucky, as well.

Because candy deliveries kept coming through December, we lost our exact total, but it was well above 380 pounds.
To date, we have sent out 24 boxes but still have several more.

If you have a family member that is serving our country, and you would like to send them a package, please call our office this week.

We will take care of the shipping, but we will need an address.

Lastly, thanks to my fantastic staff and their families for attending to all of the details to make this event a success.

The 3rd Candy-Buy-Back is scheduled for Friday, November 4th, 2011. Thanks again for the awesome Spencer County support, and mark it on your calendar for November. We hope to see you there!
