Generous hearts keep others warm

What a great community we live in! Even in our tough economic times, our annual mitten drive was a tremendous success. The generosity was abundant this year as we collected 430 items, including hats, mittens, scarves, slippers and other outerwear for the Women's Resource Center of Newport & Bristol Counties.

This year's donations totaled a significant amount more than last year. The WRC is very grateful, as are the employees of the Town of Jamestown.

If you had good intentions of donating and were unable to, don't worry, the need is always there and we intend to continue our annual tradition in 2009.

Best wishes to all for a happy and healthy New Year and thank you again. Heather Lopes Deputy Town Clerk
