Thanks to All That Participated

     Recently there was a collection taken for a roadside message board to be put up on State Rt. 417/19 during the Balloon Rally weekend. I would like to thank everyone that donated to that. On the same day there were 30 signs made and distributed to local businesses on Main St., Wellsville. I would like to thank those brothers and sisters who helped to the stores and hand them out.

     During this time of negotiations we need to stand together. Put our personal beliefs of each other and the union aside. Supporting each other and standing behind our negotiating committee. With that being said, look at the businesses that have agreed to support us verses the ones that haven't. Stop and think how long we've been supporting these businesses and remember those that can't support us for just one month.

     In closing, stand strong, stand together, and get involved. Don't let everyone else fight for your job. Stand up and join in the fight.

Kind Regards,
Dennis Givens

P.S. I forgot one special thank you. That goes out to the "Walking Bill Board." Thank you!
