I would like to shout a big thank you to all Calhoun County residents who put something in our Marine Corps Toys for Tots box this past Christmas. Because of you, we were able to provide toys for more than 1,200 children. It was by far the most toys we have ever collected.

Fellow Marine and 2013 coordinator Dave Grise went above and beyond in his quest to make sure every kid in our county had a toy for Christmas. Dave had plenty of help thanks to Bob Spence, Dan Long, Stephanie Grise, Mindy Long, Candy McKinsey, Ron Richie, Winston Saffold, Amber Davis, Dean and Yvette Hoth, Shelia Branson, Mandi Houser, Ray Sandavol, Melodie Smith, Ruth Davis and our young Marines.

Also, special thanks to Mapco Express, A.B.S. Office Systems, G.M.C. Classic Cars, Temp. Forces, Hills Moving and Storage, Dollar General, Walgreens, Snap Fitness, Buffy Fitness Gym, the U.S. Marine Corps recruiting office and the Calhoun County Commission.

Our Marine Corps League, Allen Ray Chaffin Detachment 1329, is always looking for a few good men. If you would like to become a member of our group, please give me a call at 256-689-2811.
