Madrid outreach thanks Thanksgiving helpers
To the Editor:
The members of the New Beginnings Thrift Store and Food Outreach would like to express our gratitude to the individuals and companies who made our distribution of Thanksgiving dinners to the less fortunate a success. Thank you again.
I would like to thank the owner of the blue vehicle that hit my green GMC Envoy on Saturday Dec. 11 at the Norwood Holiday Festival. Did you think that I would be as ignorant as you and not notice the blue paint from your car on mine? Maybe when you look at yours and there is green paint on it you will remember what a dishonest person you really are. You might also want to consider driving lessons because I am not sure how you even hit my car other than the fact that you were not paying attention. My vehicle was parked in the appropriate spot (not sticking out into the street).
