    As President of the Battlefield Estates Civic Association, I am so very proud to let residents know that our association made Thanksgiving possible for two families. These two families were both given a turkey by one of our members and our association provided cash for the trimmings. Now, we are hard at work gathering food, supplies, and presents for a mother with two children, one ten year old and one thirteen year old. Because of our association’s caring nature, they will have a wonderful dinner and lots of presents. Join in helping people out. Last year, our association Secretary, Connie Knight, and our Treasurer, Bonnie Echols, visited with another family that our association helped and we all cried. That family was desperate and the father cried at the generosity shown to his wife and his three little kids. There is a genuine need for help in our county. I was told that 150 families applied and only 50 of the most serious cases were put on the list. The pantry is empty at Social Services and they need YOU to help. Please contribute. Call April McIsaac now to help. Call her at 9955-3701. God bless all that help.

    In November, the 5th grade students at Boyce Elementary participated in the 5th Grade Thanksgiving Project. They worked with Clarke County Social Services to serve 5 families in need by creating baskets overflowing with household goods. The students learned that even though a family or elderly residents might receive food stamps, those allotments didn’t cover basic household needs like soap, toothpaste and much more. The students decorated the boxes with hand made leaves and wrote well wishes to the recipients. Hopefully, this lesson will stay with these youth in this new season of need and for many years to come.
