In December, the Delta Public Library and Delta Lee Marts VFW Post 3571 and its Ladies Auxiliary jointly sponsored a baking contest. The entries were judged by Delta Police Chief Robert Thomas, Delta County Undersheriff Mark Taylor and Colorado State Patrol Captain Jon Rapp (retired).
All of the "goodies" were then packaged and sent to United States military personnel around the world.
Contest winners were Donna Miller, first place; Diane Foss, second; and Grace Haws, third.
Compliments of two teenage girls from Eckert, over 200 handmade Christmas cards were sent with the goodies, destined for service personnel who might not receive Christmas greetings from home.
If you would like to cheer a service person far from home, please write a note or letter and take it to Lea Hart at the Delta Public Library or call Sandy Baker of the Lee Marts VFW Ladies Auxiliary 3571 at 874-8172.blog comments powered by Disqus
