One of our most favorite holiday traditions at The Beacon is our annual Mitten Tree. Well, it’s up and waiting for your donations and decorations. We load up the tree every year with mittens, gloves, scarves and caps to help keep heads, hands and hearts warm for the winter.
We are located at the Beacon Place business center off State Route 53 N next to Goodwill. Thanks you in advance for your contributions.
Bill Hatker of Oak Harbor was selected from among 124 entries who found Wylie hiding in the ad for Safe Harbor Insurance on Page 1B in last week’s Beacon. So, congratulations to Bill, the winner of our weekly $25 gas card graciously donated by Friendship Stores.
Each week we hide Wylie Walleye in an ad and our readers, when one of them finds him, can either bring in a contest entry cut out of the paper or log onto our website … www.thebeacon.net … and let us know where he is, thus entering, and possibly winning our weekly contest.
