Military donations overwhelming

To the editor:

Once again the officers and members of Catholic Daughters Court Catherine Esther 1264 would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to those who contributed items and money to the Christmas collection for our servicemen and women in Afghanistan.

We'd also like to thank the Fort Plain, Canajoharie and St Johnsville branches of the NBT Bank, Our Lady of Hope Church in Fort Plain and the Episcopal Church if the Good Shepherd in Canajoharie for their cooperation in letting us place the collection boxes in their lobbies and vestibules. We are extremely grateful for the publicity afforded us by the Pennysaver, the Courier-Standard, the Recorder and other area newspapers. Our thanks especially goes to Lt. Col. Lisa Bowman for providing us with the names and addresses of several servicemen and women from the Albany/Schenectady area to send the collection to.

The response from the community was overwhelming, with donations also coming from the Canajoharie Middle School Junior National Honor Society, the ARC homes on Carlisle Road, Ridge Road and Burch Street in Canajoharie, on Karol Ann Place and Gilbert Avenue in Fort Plain and on Grand Street in Palatine Bridge.

We packed and sent 41 boxes of items from the recommended list on Nov. 30 and we received enough money in donations to pay the shipping costs. Again, we thank you all for joining us in supporting our troops during the Christmas season. May God bless you for your generosity.

Marlene Nalli,

Fort Plain
