To the Editor:

Congratulate friends, family and colleagues on their celebrations and benefit a local charity. Community Sharing, assisting local families in Dorset, Danby, Rupert, Pawlet and Wells, is the beneficiary of Rising Sun Maintenance's greeting sign.

For $5 a day, you can surprise someone with a birthday or anniversary wish or recognize a job well done.

There will only be one greeting sign per day at the Route 30 location. Since its inception in the fall of 2011, Rising Sun Maintenance's program has netted over $1,000 for Community Sharing. Volunteer Beth Eyre of Dorset and her committee utilize the funds to purchase groceries, warm clothing, boots and toys for children. At the holidays, Community Sharing helps over 170 families to provide a brighter holiday.

To surprise your favorite someone, call Rising Sun Maintenance at 802-362-2648 or mail your sponsorship to PO Box 350, Dorset, VT 05251.
