Dear Editor,

This is a big heart-felt “thank you” to everyone who made T.G.I.F. (Thank God It’s Free) a huge success this past year: Lafarge Corporation, Kiwanis Club of Paulding, Black Swamp Equipment of Defiance, Baughman Tile, Spartech Plastics, Paulding United Methodist Church, fifth grade class at Divine Mercy of Antwerp, Veterans of Foreign War Post 587, Paulding County Commissioners, Paulding County Probation Department, Boy Scout Troop 315, all the individuals that worked and everyone who donated items.

And last but not least, an anonymous donor that made it all possible to purchase several new gifts.

T.G.I.F Committee
