Miss the town's help

To the Editor:

As far back as I can remember, possibly even before I was born the village of Lyndonville has plowed and sanded the parking lots for the three churches that fall within the village limits, in the whole scope of things this adds very little to what they already do. now this year they just took it upon themselves to stop plowing.

After I sent a message to Justin smith asking why, and getting no response from him the church suddenly got a letter in the mail citing budget constraints and lack of manpower. that is a bunch of bull, these churches are full of the greatest givers in town, they are the highest providers of support to places like hope and the food shelf. and they support many groups and missions around town, the church has even left the doors open and left out food and snacks for the village crew on lengthy multi day storms before. they participate and support and give at the annual sizzler and much more, there is many other ways that the village can save money I know because I used to run the village myself, what is this world coming to?

You think its about time to see that the more we take God out of our equations the worse off we are, people try to take Christ out of Christmas, we take god out of schools and now because of budget constraints we take god out of our plowing budget, rest assured village, that the churches will be fine for god always provides for his followers, and despite what you think we do appreciate all you have done for us in the past, we forgive you and we will be praying for you fervently.

Merry Christmas,
