Editor, The Times:
After 20 years of service, the Clothes Co. Thrift Shop will not reopen.
The building is retired and so is the staff. Although we are still receiving hospital equipment and I will keep you posted on that.
At this time we are not involved with any new operations. The remaining funds will be used for health care at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital.
We, Mary Stewart, Nora McDonald and Edith Heywood (who has since passed), are so pleased and proud to have been involved with this generous and caring community. Thank you, one and all. We hope we have been helpful.
Also a big thank you to all the staff that were with us over the 20 years. Many have moved away or on to new things. We can never give enough credit and recognition to the volunteers, young and old, that make good things happen, giving with a big generous heart. Many have been with us for years and we are really grateful and appreciative. Thank you.
