Vote online to pay for more dump bags

I would like to take this opportunity to say how wonderful it was to read the story in last week’s Citizen about Mary Dewerff and her Dump Bag Project.

What a great idea! It’s always so refreshing to read positive stories about our local citizens making such a difference in the lives of others, especially our recuperating soldiers.

Thank you to all of the kind people involved in this project. I hope everyone will take a moment to vote for the Dump Bag Project at, for their chance to receive funding for more dump bags.

Also, kudos to Miles Ace Hardware for donating materials for the dump bags. It is always such a pleasure to shop at Miles Ace Hardware, and their generosity does not surprise me one bit. One more reason to support our local businesses.

Thank you.

I just went up and voted for the "Dump Bag" project to help our wounded troops. Mary DeWerff has done a magnificent job providing such a great aid to our wounded, but she needs money to continue to help. If you are unfamiliar with this project, please learn about it and help. Donate money if you can, and PLEASE go up on and vote for the Dump Bag project. The winner gets $5000! It is currently number 12 and needs lots of votes. So go on the website, select "current leaders" and scroll down until you see the DumbBag Project. Please issue a vote. Let's get Mary's project to number one and really send some help to our wounded soldiers.
