Fall is here and as winter approches, the U.S. Coast Guard and Share the Spirit are once again teaming up for the wood cutting campaign.

Members of the Coast Guard provide the labor, cutting and delivering wood, while all the proceeds raised from selling the fire wood are collected by Share the Spirit and used for the Holiday Basket Program.

We are writing today to get the word out for those looking to purchase wood as well as those who may have timber they want cut and removed. The program coordinator, Mike Jones, would like to hear from you; he can be reached at 299-1077. The members of this group do a quick and neat job, so do contact Mike if you either want to schedule a delivery or would like a few trees taken off your property.

We want to take this opportunity to thank the Coast Guard crew, their efforts are greatly appreciated.

Remember to Share the Spirit,

Kelly Glidden, president and co-chair                                                       

Shari Daugherty, basket co-chair
