Thank you for all the packing help

Thank you to Julie Sutherland, Diane Kron and all those who helped and donated for the goody bags we made, filled and sent to our soldiers in Afghanistan for Christmas.

These bags will brighten their spirits during the holidays (we are thinking of them).

A big thank you to the second-grade students of Mrs. Milless for their letters and pictures for soldiers.

I will be sewing more bags for soldiers leaving the beginning of the new year and won’t be home for Easter. If you would like to help or want to donate, call Karen Walz at 763-441-6577. Things we can use are bags, material, razors, aftershave, shaving cream, deodorant, shampoo, lotion, small package tissues, tooth brushes, toothpaste, mouth wash, bars of soap, pictures and letters from children, etc. Most of all, prayers for their safe return. — Karen Walz, Elk River
