Gene Giraffe Project thanks all who helped

To the editor:

Gene Giraffe Project would like to thank all the walkers and runners who came to Kennedy Park to help bring awareness for rare diseases in our area. We would like to thank our sponsors for the run/walk — NEW Coop, Valero, Doyle Construction, Creative Signs and The Dariette. We are looking forward to have the run/walk next year again. Thank you to Joe Sutter and The Messenger for the great story.

We are having a Festival of Lights at Shimkat Motor Co. the week of Nov. 26 to Dec. 1. We have businesses and individuals that have donated trees for display for the week. These trees will be on display for the public to stop in and see and purchase with proceeds to go to Gene Giraffe Project. Those trees not purchased will be donated to families in our area who cannot afford a tree.

Thank you all! We hope you all come and see the Festival of Lights at Shimkat.
