Letter: Renewed faith in community

I have a renewed faith in our community because of the business community rallying around our veterans to provide the fellowship and support that was in jeopardy as a result of the closing of Thelma’s in West End Plaza.

K & W Cafeteria stepped up to continue the Frontier Coffee Shop program that has been a venue for local and visiting veterans for more than five years.

Hats off to Brent Lyerly, of Lyerly Funeral Home, for paying for the coffee for these deserving soldiers that fought to keep our land free.

It’s encouraging to see how our citizens and businesses continue to honor those who gave to our country. The K & W group not only will continue to provide space and service but they have committed to provide danishes to go with the coffee.

What really impressed me was that the top management attended the first coffee meeting on Tuesday to show their support.

Thanks to Thelma Luckey for her support over the past five years and thanks to others for their continued support. What a great county we live in. Let’s do this countywide and get behind other groups that need our support.
