To the editor:

Thank you, Panola County, for helping make approximately 600 children celebrate a Merry Christmas! The Panola County Secret Santa Project was successful because of you.  The cooperation of individuals, churches, schools, business and industry, The Panolian and The Southern Reporter, and civic organizations made Christmas for these children possible.  It was overwhelming for us to see people from all over Panola County working together to make this effort a reality.

What a wonderful experience for those of us who had hands-on opportunities to see the happy faces of the parents and children when their gifts were delivered or picked-up.  It would never have been possible, however, without your support.

Panola County, you should be proud of yourself.  Thank you!!!

Roy Girner and Sally Shideler, Chairmen

Panola County Secret Santa Committee
