If another three-year levy were voted down in the county, would it be held again within four to six months? What do you think? To my way of thinking, when the people say NO levy for three years, that should say it all--NO levy for this purpose will be voted on for three years. Davy L Miller Shock Gilmer County sending 'care Dear Editor, The Service Connection at GCHS has recently started a new group for the support of military members in Gilmer County that are being sent overseas. The group will conduct different activities to help our sol- diers along with their families at home. We are currently organizing a"spare change" drive to purchase items for care packages to send overseas. The collection began last Monday at a home basketball game. Within the 's Service Connection es' to the military next week, we will be leaving cans in several businesses around town. All donations will go to include personal items (such as shampoo, conditioner, and soaps), which the army does not fully provide until several months af- ter their departure. Stationary, maga- zines, and snack foods (gum, chips, and candy bars) will also be sent along with a card sending our thoughts and well wishes. If anyone has "spare change," we encourage you to add it to one of our collection tins or leave it at the high school for "Help our Soldiers Over- seas" in care of Mrs. Anna Jean Rogucki. Any amount, whether it be five cents, twenty-five cents, or a dol- lar is greatly appreciated and a big help. Every penny counts. The more we are able to raise, the more supplies we can send to help our men and women in uniform.
