The Department was once again overwhelmed with the amount of giving and caring that the community came forward with. I know that the residents are full of the Christmas spirit and provided an abundance of toys for children that will not forget how they felt when they woke up Christmas morning and saw all of the gifts under their tree.

January 9 is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, and the Fraternal Order of Police, Pennsylvania State Lodge, is asking every Pennsylvanian to take time to support our men and women in blue. While this day has been set aside, we appreciate your support any time.

Now more than ever, we need to rally around our brave men and women in uniform.

<![CDATA[Letter:]]> I am a local Morgantown nurse and member of our local American Legion. On Saturday, Dec. 13 I had the pleasure of attending once again "Wreaths Across America" at Fort Indiantown Gap, a national Pennsylvania Veterans Cemetery.

The day was very cold and started with an aircraft fly over, then a military ceremony honoring gold star mothers, (those mothers who have lost their sons in the line of duty).

<![CDATA[A thank you from the Grange president for supporting Hamburg Grange pot pie dinners]]> I want to personally THANK the Hamburg community for supporting the Hamburg Grange's most recent pot pie dinners. The September dinner was a success! We planned for 300 people and we sold out at 6 p.m. Sorry that not everyone could be served.

The November dinner was an even bigger success! We served 420 people and gave 46 veterans and active military a free meal.
