Let us take this opportunity to thank your newspaper and the community for helping with the benefit dinner we held for Willie Hansen. The article you published really helped to make people aware of the need and the public responded with generosity and compassion.
A big thanks goes to the Almont First Congregational Church for the use of their fellowship hall and kitchen as well as the ladies and gentlemen who did the cooking and baked homemade treats for the bake sale.
Thanks also to the all the people who donated the food items and paper products needed for the event.
And thanks to Tracy Pewinski at Tri-County Bank for getting the special account set up for Willie's healthcare needs.
It is good to live in such a caring community.
Willie Hansen's family and friends, Almont
