LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

City lights awed visitor

Dear Editor,

Thanks to the City of Rockford and the employees for decorating the City with sparkling lights. They left me in awe, a 93-year-young lady, with a renewed spirit of the holiday season.

Another option for holiday giving

Dear Editor,

I read “What Gift to Give” by Pastor Michael Cisler, and would like to add one more idea:

If you don’t want to donate money to a charity in their name as a gift, how about adding another name to your Christmas list: Jesus.

As a present for Christ on His birthday, I’d like to suggest that you give to a charity of your choice an amount equal to the cost of the wrapping paper you used on the gifts you gave to others on His birthday.

Mary Toft
Rockford resident
