The Craig Service Extension Unit of the Salvation Army has begun recruiting volunteer bell-ringers for the annual holiday Kettle Campaign.
Kettles will be manned beginning on Friday, November 23, continuing each weekend through December 24.
Many shifts are available for families, groups and individuals. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old unless accompanied by an adult.
Each year, the Craig Service Extension Unit helps many people with rent and utility assistance, medical needs and other essentials. 90 percent of the monies collected remain in Moffat County, with the other ten percent going into an emergency fund. The annual holiday Kettle Campaign is the only fundraiser for the Salvation Army in Moffat County.
For more information about becoming a Salvation Army volunteer, or to sign up to ring the bells, please call LuAnn Kline at The Journey at First Baptist Church, 824-5926

Our grandson, Kenny Prather, who is now a resident of Kenai, Alaska, has always had a positive outlook on life. No matter whether his pickup truck breaks down, he has to drive to work on slick roads, he doesn’t feel well, or a hundred other scenarios, he always says, “It’s all good.” So I was reminded of him when I read this week’s book. The leading character in the book thinks “It’s all good,” too.
