Letter to the Editor Empire-Advance reader says thank you, kudos

Sharon Johnson on pulpit supply at Elkhorn United Church on Sunday, Oct. 6, told us all to “show gratitude”. So I would like to show gratitude to our local paper, Virden Empire-Advance.

In the last two issues (Sept. 27 and Oct. 4) they have been giving honour to all our local heroes. Thank you for that!
