I am just now home from five weeks away and have just read your wonderful article in the Beacon about our shop, the United Church’s thrift shop. What a welcome home!
Thanks for the care you took in researching our 517; it was so interesting to hear the way things unfolded there. It turns out that the United Church is the longest term resident and for that we are very grateful. Our volunteers were pretty happy to know the full story, and our customers seem to have been pumped up by it as well. Our donations are up substantially; I think that is thanks to your article…... and to the fact that Michigan is now passable again. For that we are also very grateful.
