The final opportunity to register for the 2017 Latimer County Pick-A-Star/ Christmas Stars program has passed. The "Stars" packages are wrapped and ready for Christmas morning
NOTE: The totals are in and 122 applications were received from families, the 2 Assisted/Nursing Homes and the 2 KI BOIS Group homes. This equated to 217 "Stars" wishes being filled. For a family to be approved, the following was provided: a driver's license or photo identification; proof of residency in Latimer County (utility bill or mail addressed in the applicant's name to the current address); and proof of all household income (to include food stamps, TANF or any form of assistance).
A TREMENDOUS DEBT OF GRATITUDE is owed to each resident, church, business or organization who participated to make this the biggest year of production yet. From those business who donated prizes for the fund raisers, to those who attended the fund raisers, to those who picked the "stars" off the tree and granted those listed wishes, to those who donated toys or funds, and to those who wrapped 215 bags of wishes. As an unfunded Latimer County project, each of you made this year possible, made Christmas happen for many families, many individuals, who might not have had a Christmas. You truly are the "CHRISTMAS STARS"!
