This letter is a thank you to all the businesses, churches, organizations and donors who donated to Barrington Township to help make Christmas special for our families in need.
Through the generosity of these donations many families received turkeys, hams, fresh fruits and vegetables along with enough food for a plentiful Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner.
And, on Christmas morning children woke up to presents to open that might not have been there if not for the kindness of many generous people.
You all have been the shining stars this Christmas season because you brought happiness and joy to many.
Eugene R. "Gene" Dawson
Barrington Township supervisor
