Holiday drawings have benefits


After coaxing from my wife Georgia, I filled out the local merchants Thanksgiving and Christmas giving drawings for a free turkey and a free ham.

Lo and behold, we were winners in both drawings! Thank you, Sweet Home merchants and professional services, for your contributions.

It was a “fun” activity and I got to visit some local businesses previously unknown to me.

While not wanting to encourage more competition next year, your readers should get involved and get to know our local Sweet Home businesses and professional service organizations. And maybe next year there will be more businesses involved in this great give-away.

As a retired Social Security recipient, the free turkey and ham were greatly appreciated.
