To the Editor:
The holiday season brings out the best in people. For 2019, Danbury Township, Lakeside and Marblehead residents and area businesses enthusiastically helped the Danbury Holiday Bureau in the Danbury area, providing 85 families — a total of 247 people — with food and other necessities to brighten their lives during the Christmas season.
A huge thanks goes to Bassett’s Market, Danbury Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts, Danbury Township Police and Service Department, Dave’s Drive Thru, Erie Food Market, Lakeside Marblehead Storage, Marblehead Bank, The Marblehead Peninsula Lions, the Salvation Army, St. Mary’s Church for the use of its hall, Village of Marblehead Service Department and all of the area churches.
What a great community effort.
It takes about 60 to 70 volunteers … all are special angels … to sort, pack and distribute everything. Over a three-day period during the busy holiday season, this is a dedicated commitment.
My sincerest thanks to a devoted committee of Bob Biro, Elaine Roth, Linda Twarek and Mimi Turinsky. Thank you again for your continued support. It could not have been done without you. What a great community we live in!
Wishing everyone a blessed Christmas and good 2019 year.
Judy Smolk, chairperson for Ottawa County Holiday Bureau, Danbury area
