First of all, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of our readers a very Merry Christmas. This is always a fun time for me because of all the young people we have gotten to know over the years who return home for the holidays. It is always a big kick to say hello and catch up.
At last report, the Salvation Army was running a bit short on its goal of garnering $55,000 for this holiday season. So, Mayor Debbie Hymore-Tester rolled up her sleeves and challenged Toledo Mayor Mike Bell to a fundraising challenge. It takes place from 4 to 6 p.m. today (Thursday, Dec. 22) at Bassett’s Market! We already know that Mayor Bell raised $167 in two hours of ringing the bell. So, our challenge is to beat that with Mayor Debbie!
