Sentinel to publish letters of thanks
Thanksgiving is a time to count one’s blessings and give thanks to those who have made a difference in one’s 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.
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 The phone number will not be published.
Residents can thank anyone they want—a courteous post office clerk; a neighbor who always goes out of his way to help; a store owner, 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 volunteer or teacher who has made a difference in one’s life; or a public servant who has helped when one needed it most. The list goes on.
The thank-you letters must be brief (250 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.
Email letters of thanks to , fax to 758-5896, or bring to the Sentinel on Virginia Street in Urbanna. The final deadline for submitting letters is Friday, Nov. 21, at 5 p.m.
