Volunteer page should include Leydig Center

Published: Monday, Nov. 19, 2012 1:15 a.m. CST

I’m surprised you do not include the Leydig Center in your volunteer page. We, who donate and shop there, know the value to the community. Of those who unload, sort, price, hang or place the bigger items out on the floor, all are volunteers. The board is also volunteers.

Shoppers not only from Dixon but as far away as Ottawa know the value of what we buy. As a buyer, I love what I buy, but I also love knowing where the money goes, which is unusual in this day and age.

So, I want to thank the ones who donate to Leydig Center and also the volunteers who work very hard giving their time and energy. Thank you.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
