Letter: Candy buyback a huge success

To the Editor:

The Waters Dental Group of Sandwich would like to thank everyone who helped make our 10th annual Halloween Candy Buyback a huge success. Each year continues to grow in one way or another, and this year did not disappoint.

Thank you for everyone’s participation – the grand total came in at an estimated weight of over 800 pounds, that’s up over 500 pounds from last year! Wow! We appreciate the candy donations and the time spent coloring pictures and writing letters.

Once again a big thank you to the Lorntz Smith family for your organization and for collections from Sacred Heart Church, St. Mary’s Church, St. Lawrence Church, and Mazon, Verona and Kinsman middle and elementary schools’ Parents Club and everyone at these locations that donated. It takes great united communities like these to come together for this great cause! A big thank you to the Operation Care Package for shipping the candy and children’s coloring pictures overseas.

Dr. John Waters and Dr. Kara Flynn lead this annual anti-decay movement because they know the damaging effects of too much candy on children’s teeth. By leading this anti-decay movement, kids can continue to have all the fun of trick-or-treating, but now their piggy banks have a little extra cash, too. Remember to limit candy and sweets and use your new glowing toothbrushes regularly to limit decay and promote a healthy mouth and a healthy body. Thank you for supporting this wonderful project and our community. For any additional information, please call 815-786-2146 or visit The Waters Dental Group online at www.watersdentalgroup.com.
