Dec. 22 was a day full of joy and happiness as almost 100 families in the Amissville area were blessed to receive either a food basket, fruit basket or a poinsettia from their neighbors and community. The totally volunteer effort was again a wonderful success and so appreciated by the families that are touched by the gifts. For many years, the local churches, Ruritan Club and individuals have come together to provide a meaningful and joyous remembrance for families that have had hard times, lost a loved one, are dealing with sickness or just need to know someone cares during the holiday season. To all those merchants, churches, donors and volunteers that make this event the success it is each year – thank you for all that you do.
