To the editor: Thank you to Vance County

Thank you to all the Vance County businesses that contributed to the E.M. Rollins Fall Festival and Carnival:

M.R. Williams, Burger King, Home in Henderson, Mazatlan, Bamboo Gardens, C&P Body Shop, Ambassador Inn, Builder’s Discount Corp, Aaron’s, MBMA Fitness, Mike’s Barbershop, Birds of Paradise, Advantage Ford, The Attic, EZ Car Care, Angelic Cuts, Sportrax, Pizza Inn, City Tire, Family Eye Care, Peanut Roaster, Cracker Barrel, East Carolina Tire, Schewels Furniture, Henderson Florist, Kerr Lake CC, Tidal Wave Car Wash, Food Lion, John Deere, Hallmark, Chick-fil-A, Abdo Saleh, Nail Season, and Harvey Jackson. I hope we didn’t leave anyone off of the list. Each and every gesture was appreciated!

We had an incredible evening of safe family fun! We played bingo, bounced in the Bounce House, had our faces painted and fished for goodies. We ate hot dogs, popcorn and Airheads! The faculty and staff were there full force leading games and serving food.

None of this would have been possible without our volunteers. Thank you Jenny Edwards and Laura Stewart, our Event Co-Chairs. You ROCK! Kim Pinero and son Joey spent days going to businesses on our behalf. Many families contributed drinks, baked goods and time. Special thanks go to folks who went above and beyond: The Terry family, Susan Freeman, C.J. Pendergrass, Rebekah Talley, Cheryl White and Angela Feingold.

Thank you one and all for helping the Friends of Rollins PTA raise money to fill in where the county budget falls short. We appreciate it, and the children will benefit from your kindness.
