Ed Velten: Knights of Columbus thank community

Saturday, November 10, 2018

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 “Tootsie Roll Drive” to raise funds to help support our citizens with developmental disabilities.

The funds we raise in Monett are equally shared 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, Architectural Systems Inc., Community National Bank, First State Bank, Grande Tire, three offices of Edward Jones Investments, Randall Law Offices, Bruner Pharmacy, Monett Coast to Coast, Crown Double K Realty, Main Street Feeds, Walmart No. 48, International Dehydrated Foods and JDV Management Company for their generous donations in support of our campaign and to Walmart for allowing us to solicit donations from patrons at their store in return for delicious Tootsie Rolls.

God bless all.

Ed Velten

Grand Knight, Knights of Columbus Council No. 1075
