Dear Editor,

We would like to think all of our local businesses and churchesfor all their contributions to help supply the needy with schoolsupplies for this new school year. With your assistance, themission was able to aid 103 area children.

Sister Janice Burgess, member of Oak Grove M.B. Church, was themotivational speaker for this event. During her speech, Mrs.Burgess encouraged the youth to forget about their past but tofocus on this new school year with a new strength of mind anddetermination. Mrs. Burgess also urged the youth to be obedient andlearn to discipline themselves by making good choices.
