Thank you to all those local organizations, agencies and individuals who adopted Payson Elementary School students this holiday season in order to provide them with gifts, food and holiday joy!
A special thanks to members of the Payson Rotary Club #5510, Payson Masonic Lodge #70, Payson Elks Lodge #2154, First Assembly of God, Expedition Church, Modified Motorcycle Association of Arizona — Rim Country District and Safeway, Inc., and to those individuals who wish to remain anonymous.
Because of your generosity, these remarkable boys and girls returned to school after winter break not only clad in new warm clothes, but also with wonderful tales of delight after awakening Christmas morning to find carefully wrapped presents placed neatly under the tree.
Your thoughtfulness and concern for our youth presents as a lovely reminder of the goodness in others and makes me especially proud to live in small town Payson, where big city malls and elaborate sporting arenas don’t make a town what it is, people do.
