We at the Roane County Library would like to thank all the groups
and individuals who participated in the "We Care For Soldiers" project, in
which candy bars wrapped in handwritten "thank you" letters were sent to our
The response was overwhelming, with people from not only
Roane County, but surrounding counties, including Calhoun, participating.
On December 20, 2002, approximately 450 candy bars and letters were shipped
out and, since then, Carol Hall (the library representative who initiated
the program along with Brandy Brabham from the WVU Extension office) has
received two separate letters from servicemen thanking all the folks who
cared enough to participate.
So, to all you folks from Calhoun who
participated, your thoughtfulness was greatly appreciated by us at the
library and by all of the soldiers on the receiving end of your support.
Roane County Library Director
