To the editor:
For the first time in 15 years, the New Church of Southwest Florida will not be conducting a community Christmas Eve Service on the beach at Times Square. Several factors contributed to this decision, not the least of which was our minister having to return to Arizona because of her husband's health.
But although we have had to suspend this service, we continue serving the hungry in the area through our food pantry supplied by the generosity of our beloved Beach community. So let us continue to remember our neighbors in need.
For more information about our programs and outreach and how you can help, call me at 560-6785.
