Christmas Sharing program in 20th year

The Bobby D. White Detachment Marine Corps League and Venture Productions, Inc. teamed up again this year to give Christmas toys and other gifts to over 200 children in Adams County. With the help from the Ohio Valley School District Tag Students, shopping was made easy at the West Union Wal-Mart store.

This program has been in existence for 20 years and is always a success because of the following donors: Fifth Third Bank,

the National Bank of Adams County, First State Bank, Wilson Worthy Poor Fund, Wal-Mart, the West Union Women’s Club, West Union Card Club, Unger Construction (Jimmy and Tammy Unger), Jimmy and Sande Staggs, Bunco Babes, Raymond and Brande Applegate, The Roush Insurance Group, Randy Mack, Robert and Debbie Spires, the Inter Faith House, and all the staff and consumers at Venture Productions. Thank you to all of the schools with your coordination of applications and best Christmas wishes. Pictured left to right is Ted Crouch, Ed Locke, Liz Lafferty, George Biely, and

League and Liz Lafferty is the Program Coordinator.
