Huge thank you to the Vicksburg community

To the editor:

Rick Standish and myself would like to start out by saying thank you Vicksburg. Because of our local business owners, and local citizens in our community, we raised $6,509 on June 23 to help Johnny Sellers.

I would like to give special thanks to Tractor Supply for letting us use their parking lot. Also, special thanks to friends of Abate for putting on the poker run, Jody and Chris Williams and Tecia Ive for helping to sale tickets and other things we had going on.
