Our thoughts... Hol­i­day thanks

The Covington News - - Local news -

The buildup up for Santa Claus and the com­mer­cial­ism of Christ­mas is over.

In a way, it is a re­lief. We pray though, that the true spirit of Christ­mas is not over for you.

We hope that you can keep the hol­i­day’s spirit kin­dled in your life through­out the com­ing year.

Dur­ing the last few weeks we have en­cour­aged each of you to re­mem­ber your neigh­bor this sea­son. Many of you have. Some­times we for­get to thank every­one who gave of them­selves in any way to help oth­ers.

Civic groups like the Ro­tary, Ki­wa­nis, Pi­lot Club and Lions, as usual, were leaders of the pack with their do­na­tions and time. The churches took care of their own as well as oth­ers. Many busi­nesses went out of their way to help those in need, even though some were hurt­ing them­selves.

The Cov­ing­ton Po­lice Depart­ment took chil­dren shop­ping.

All of th­ese groups de­serve and re­ceive our high­est praise.

Who we re­ally want to thank to­day, the day af­ter Christ­mas, is you our reader. We thank you for be­liev­ing in us and car­ing about your com­mu­nity.

We have said be­fore and we will say again, New­ton County and So­cial Cir­cle is not only the land of pleas­ant beauty, but also a land of gen­eros­ity.
