A message of thanks

To the editor:

The Salvation Army would like to express their sincere thanks to the Fort Dodge community and to the United States Postal Servicr employees who faithfully, every year, organize their food drive and collect food donations to supply local food pantries.

Thanks to the generosity of local residents, 433.5 pounds of food have been contributed to our TSA Food Pantry.

In addition, approximately 200 jars of peanut butter and jelly has been collected and donated to The Salvation Army during recent community event at Fort Frenzy. Our agency has served Webster County for over 50 years and wants to let the Fort Dodge community know that our service would not be possible without their faithful support.

A message of thanks

To the editor:

Clay and Associates DDS, PLC, recently celebrated our official opening for our new clinic. It was a wonderful evening for our staff, patients, friends and family.

We would like to take this opportunity to formally thank the city, county and community for their support of this project. Not only do we have a state of the art dental clinic but we also have been able to bring a pediatric dentist and dental associate to serve the region. This has allowed us to now offer extended hours and accept new patients.

Thank you to the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance Ambassadors for helping us cut the ribbon and join in during the festivities.

We are proud of the Fort Dodge community and all that it has to offer.

Dr. John Clay

Fort Dodge
