Gene Keeton: Knights of Columbus thank community

Saturday, October 21, 2017

Dear Editor:

The officers and members of Monett Council No. 1075 of the Knights of Columbus would like to sincerely thank the residents of Monett and the immediate surrounding area for their generous contributions to our recently concluded annual "Tootsie Roll Drive" to raise funds to help support our citizens with mental disabilities.

The funds we raise in Monett are shared equally between ARC of the Ozarks, a residential care facility for the developmentally disabled located in Monett and Special Olympics.

Special thanks go to Animal Clinic of Monett, Architechtural Systems Inc., community National Bank, First State Bank, Grande Tire, John Woodward Law Offices, Randall, Masri and Randall Law Offices, Bruner Pharmacy, KDent, Crown Double K Realty, Main Street Feeds, Walmart Store No. 48, International Dehydrated Foods and JVD Management Company for their generous donations in support of our campaign and to Walmart for allowing us to solicit donations from their patrons at their store in return for delicious Tootsie Rolls.

God bless all.

Gene Keeton

Grand Knight for Knights of Columbus No. 1075
