What makes relay special?

Letter: Loved the article "How to succeed in Bluffton"

Fred:

LOVED the ideas in your "How to Succeed in Bluffton..." speech/article. I've always considered Bluffton "the little town that could."

If your article this doesn't make a change-encourage involvement in how
Bluffton is promoted, then I'm not sure what will. I love my hometown!

Letter: Thank you to everyone involved in Saturday's Easter egg hunt

Icon viewers:
Want to send out a big thank you to all the volunteers, residents, Mennonite Home, McDonald's and Community Markets for the very organized and well ran Easter egg hunt on Saturday, March 19.

I took my three year-old grandson Garrett and this was his first-ever Easter egg hunt as well.

He was so excited to have his number drawn in the basket give away and the number of eggs he was able to get.

Kudos to all those who took part in making this a wonderful and safe event for children!
