As a way to show a small token of our appreciation for our troops, the Smyth County Chamber of Commerce, along with others, worked to create appreciation packages for 135 troop members. We want to thank Smyth County staff, the Town of Chilhowie, the Town of Saltville, Rich Valley Elementary School, and Smyth County Tourism for their donations in supplies for the troops. We also want to extend a warm thank you to Kim Clark in her efforts to arrange and organize the event.
From the Smyth County Chamber of Commerce, we send a special thank you to our troops, both at home and over seas. We thank you for your service to our nation and for your commitment to our country.
The packages included Smyth Strong notebooks, thank you cards from Rich Valley Elementary School, thank you cards from community members, chap stick, a troops sticker, and much more. Thank you to all who donated supplies and gifts.
