Sentinel will publish ‘letters of thanks’ in Thanksgiving issue; early deadline
Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for your blessings and give thanks to those who have made a difference in your life.
In this spirit, the Southside Sentinel will once again print, at no charge, short “thank-you letters” from Middlesex County residents and visitors in its Thanksgiving issue of Wednesday, November 26.
Sentinel to print early next week; deadline is Monday
Because Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday, the Sentinel will appear a day early next week on Wednesday, November 26. The deadline for display ads for this issue is 10 a.m. Monday, November 24; and the deadline for classified ads and news is noon Monday, November 24.
The Sentinel office will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 27-28, for the Thanksgiving holiday. The office will reopen at 9 a.m. Monday, December 1.
The letters must be brief and to the point, and the letter writer’s name, community of residence and phone number must accompany each letter. The phone number will not be published.
Any person, business or organization can be thanked—a helpful store clerk; a neighbor, friend or co-worker who goes out of his or her way to help; a store, doctor or repairman who provides excellent and friendly service; a dependable church or civic volunteer who goes beyond the call of duty; a youth sports coach or school teacher who has made a difference in your life; a good Samaritan who helped in a time of need; or a public official who has served the community well. The list goes on.
The thank-you letters must be brief (150 words or less). Longer letters will be subject to editing. Only positive letters will be published.
If the Sentinel receives more letters than it can publish, a sampling of the letters will be published, and the remainder will be published at http://www.SSentinel.com.
Email letters of thanks to , fax to 758-5896, or bring to the Sentinel office at 276 Virginia Street in Urbanna. The absolute final deadline for submitting letters is Sunday, November 23.
