To the Editor:
It is with a great deal of gratitude that the Newtown Service Unit of the Salvation Army wishes to thank all the former and new volunteers who rang the kettle bells these past two weekends. You wonderful people came out in cold, windy and snowy weather and did your ringing and greeting as in the past and in good humor.
