Chris Thompkins has just completed her 7th year as Salvation Army Kettle Coordinator for the Town of Halifax and is delighted to announce that they have raised $6,557.33 for the 2017 holiday season!
She sends out thanks to all of her volunteers, those who donated, to Twin Lakes Liquors and the Rockland Trust for their patience, and a special thank you to Stop & Shop for graciously allowing their bell ringers and kettles to be inside, out of the cold, this year!
