Thumbs up

-- — THUMBS UP: To the continued success of the Lake Park Life After Fifty Dinner and Dance. Last weekend, nearly 50 participants joined the holiday-themed festivities to dance and socialize into the night. These dances are held the last Saturday of the month every other month. It provided a fun way to say farewell to the old year and will keep folks dancing throughout the new year.

THUMBS UP:  To Jack and Deborah Skelly who rescued three beagles and gave them homes. The Skellys’ example should serve as a reminder that many animals need a loving home and there are plenty of animals that need rescuing.

THUMBS UP: To the businesses and individuals that make Relay for Life a success each year. Though there are still a few months before the annual cancer-awareness event, planning has already begun. At 6 p.m., Jan. 15, Wiregrass Georgia Technical College, Relay for Life hosts the annual Passion Party to garner more support for the event.

THUMBS UP: To the Valdosta-based Mailbox Club for its continued support of missions worldwide. In addition to spreading messages of faith, a Valdosta visit this week by an Asian missionary served as a reminder that the club’s materials, which are printed in dozens of languages, are also instrumental in teaching children how to read.

    THUMBS UP: To Air Force Lt. Col. David Rayman. The 75th Fighter Squadron commander recently logged 3,000 flight hours in the A-10C Thunderbolt II. A rare feat. In presenting a Moody Air Force Base story on his accomplishment in The Times, it’s good to see the face and know the name of one of the many pilots who cross our South Georgia skies. Congratulations on 3,000 and thank you for your service.
