Once again, through the generosity of hundreds of you out there, our Mitten Tree got all filled up with its very special ornaments, mittens, gloves, caps and scarves. We had a pickup from the Salvation Army on Tuesday morning, and they will make their final pickup on Monday, Dec.10. So there is still time to make a contribution. We also have a box in our office from Salvation Army for coats, other clothing items and toys so you can fill them up here. As always, the true spirit of Christmas is alive and well in Ottawa County.
