TO THE EDITOR:

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank our community for the amazing support our children received for their lemonade stand in support of Lifeline Children’s Services. Their Stand for Orphans raised over $1,700 which was then matched by an anonymous donor.

We would like to personally thank Harvey & Simons, CPAs and Simons & Associates for the use of their office space and sidewalk.

We would also like to thank Deans Inc. and Wandean Stock for the donation of cookies.

We are continually reminded time and again about the incredible generosity that comes from this amazing community. Thank you for supporting our children in their endeavors to give back and make a difference in the life of an orphan.

Sincerely, Arlas Blackwell and Amanda MartinĀ on behalf of Abigail Blackwell, Erin Martin, Holly Blackwell, Kristen Martin, Alyssa Lieb and Jazmine Lieb
