To the editor:
The Benefit Concert held downtown last Thursday night with award-winning vocalist Mark Bishop was an amazing demonstration of how a community can come together to show love and support for others.
There were huge totes filled with food to feed the hungry, gloves and winter scarves to give warmth from the cold and a sizable donation to help those in crisis.
I want to thank Jarrod Etienne, Chad Broaddus, Sammy Harris, Amanda Carrel, Addison Moore, Nathan Harrington and Cindy Hill for sharing their talents. A very special thanks goes to James Smith and many others that assisted to ensure that the night was enjoyable for all. Most importantly, thank you to those who came with donations and to enjoy some great Christmas music. Jesus spoke in Book of Matthew that our love for others is a reflection of our love for Him. It’s exciting to think what 2012 may bring. Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas!
