On behalf of the First District Tree-Lighting Committee, I would like to express sincere thanks to the many organizations and individuals who baked and decorated thousands of cookies for our event on Dec. 7 at the Ridge Volunteer Fire Department. Many compliments were received and the cookies were enjoyed by the hundreds of folks who attended our night of free fun, including Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus and their helpers.

Also, deepest appreciation to all who donated nonperishable food to be given to the less fortunate people in our community. We hope it helped to make their holidays a bit brighter.

Lastly to those who worked so hard to make the tree-lighting special and so successful, God bless you and Happy New Year to all.

Peggy Vallandingham, Ridge
