Welcome to the Pike County Times.com Letters to the Editor Page.

These editorials reflect the opinions of their authors and don't necessarily reflect my personal opinions. Feel free to express your opinion with a letter to the editor to: editor@pikecountytimes.com.

Letter writing guidelines are as follows: I do not have a word limit. However, all editorials must be respectful even when hard points are made about any topic including local, state, or national politics.

If I have a problem with an editorial, I will let you know by email and it can either be resolved or not printed because I will proof your letter for grammatical errors, but I do not edit letters based on content. And last but not least, your editorial must be accompanied by your name and a county or city of residence.

Thought for the Week

Thank you from Pike County American Legion Post 197

To Pike County and surrounding areas:

The Pike County American Legion Post 197 thanks all those who sponsored, supported, volunteered, and participated in the 26 August 2017 Williamson 5K/10K Run/Walk fundraiser to support Veterans. The City of Williamson was a gracious host and we had beautiful weather. The Pike County Times and Pike County Journal Reporter were avid promoters of our event. Greggs Graphics produced an awesome T-shirt with a caricature of the Williamson Huey Helicopter sketched by Peyton Holley. There were 38 participants who negotiated either the 5K or 10K course.

Post 197 thanks the City of Williamson, Narrow Path Ministries International, United Bank, Georgia BBQ, Hilley’s Seat Cover, Barnstormer’s Grill, Concord Manor and Winery, Eagles’ Landing Homeowner’s Association, Georgia Hair Salon, Gregg Graphics, Isenhour Corner’s Produce, Pike County Journal-Reporter, Pike County Times, and Williamson Quick Stop for sponsoring our event.

We also would like to thank the friends and relatives who signed up to honor deceased Veterans. We honored Veterans Lawrence E. Brock, Henry “Ed” Kersey, and William M. Sexton on the back of the event T-shirt.

The Pike County American Legion Post 197 conducts Programs that help honor Veterans; assist Veterans and their families; and educate the community on Veterans affairs and patriotism. Sponsorship and event participation allows Post 197 to continue these programs.

The next 5K/10K Run/Walk will be conducted in the great city of Zebulon sometime in February 2018, pending the City’s approval. We are working to make this another enjoyable event. More information will be provided in the future.

Again, thank you to our sponsors, volunteers, and participants for your continued support to these community events.
