To the editor:

I just received the following letter and card from an individual signed only as “Janet” with no return address.

I would like to meet Janet and invite her to come over and look at the Christmas decorations I have on display on East Main Street in Hillsboro. (Perhaps she reads The Highland County Press.)

Here is the kind letter.

Dear Friends:

Hi! You don’t know me, but I’d like to thank you for your beautiful Christmas decorations!

Last year I had lost both parents, and I was sure I’d never decorate for Christmas again. I was driving into Hillsboro on U.S. 50 and all of a sudden spotted your beautiful ornaments blowing in the wind!

The sight of your ornaments glistening so high up on the trees made me smile for the first time in a very long time! Your decor is even more beautiful this year!

Sincerely,
John Otey
Hillsboro
