I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the businesses and individuals who gave so generously to this year’s Mountain Statesman Gigantic Toy Give Away. The Mountain Statesman’s volunteers wrapped gifts for nearly two hundred children so that Santa and Mrs. Clause could hand them out after Grafton’s Christmas Parade this past Saturday night. I would like to say thank you to Jerry and Linda Boling, David and Sandy Taylor, Jacinda Devart, Joanne, Riley and Lucky Jones, Zachary Jones, Jacob Gordan and the staff from the Mountain Statesman for their help in making this year’s toy give away a success. I would also like to say how much I appreciate Grafton’s very own Fire Department and Volunteers. Not just because you allow us to use the fire station to give out the toys but for being so very accommodating to every one of our requests. You provided the trailer, helped unload the toys, and swept up after we were finished. We couldn’t do it without you.
