Bakers and volunteers of the Send Our Soldiers Cookies gathered at the Roseland Community Center Thursday, Nov. 14 to package and box cookies, candies and other goodies to send to the troops over seas in time for Thanksgiving. The ladies and some gentleman have been sending cookies and treats to our men and women serving a long way from home for right at seven years. The group will box a Christmas shipment at the Old Roseland Fire Department Thursday, Dec. 5 at 3:00 p.m. If you would like to bake or donate for postage, call Rita Richter at (772) 388-5920.
