You can recycle Christmas lights for a good cause
Just a tip: While the Rowan County recycling sites cannot accept strands of unwanted or burnt-out Christmas tree lights, we can drop them in the Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary aluminum can drop-off spots around Salisbury. Faithful Friends can recycle them. The drop-off sites at Uptown Dogs and Cats Grooming on Statesville Boulevard (beside The Plaza/former Salisbury Mall) and the drop-off location on Brenner Avenue at the Hudson-Miller-Tatum VFW Post are accessible 24/7. The complete list of all drop-off spots and addresses is available on this website http://faithfulfriendsnc.org/can-team
The lights need to be bagged separately from aluminum cans left in the “Can kennels.” The lights will be kept out of our landfills and used for a good cause. Every bit helps and is appreciated!

Thanks for the pick-me-up
I’d like to thank the people who helped me after I fell in the K&W parking lot. It was a very windy day, and I’d dropped some bills, which were blowing away when I fell. People helped me up, and helped chase down the flying money. I won’t forget this kindness.
