Give a Christmas gift for our troops

October 13, 2012

Area residents will have a chance to give U.S. military personnel stationed overseas a bit of holiday cheer again this year.

For the past few years, the effort has been done under the auspices of the Midland-based Christmas for Our Troops, but local organizer Debbie Burrow said she wanted to do something a little different this year.
