I just want to start out by saying how truly proud I am of the support that our little town contributes to our Hometown Heroes Program! For the 6th year in a row we have been able to take 20 kids from the Grayville School District Christmas shopping! That is 120 kids in the past 6 year that have had their Christmas brightened by this wonderful program! None of this would be possible without donations made by people, businesses and organizations in our community or the time and effort put in by many people to make this program a success! First, let me thank three people from Grayville CUSD #1 that helped me in the selection of the kids this year. Thank you to Principal Melissa Crow, Staff Kim Milligan and Staff Melinda Tate for advice and help on the selection. Your help and advice is greatly appreciated! Next, thank you to my staff at Grayville Police Department and Little Wabash Fire Protection District for all the help and time you contribute. A special thanks to Tammy Downs! Tammy, you had been a BIG part in the fundraising and I’m truly thankful for your help! Also, Thank you to Commissioner Andy Brock for always funding the transportation! Finally, thanks to all the wonderful people, businesses and organizations that donate money to our program; through annual calendar sales and donations you are truly the backbone to this program that keeps it a success! Grayville, we may be small but when it comes to giving, we deliver in a big way!! Thank you and may God Bless you all!!
