Halloween candy buy-back a huge success

To the Editor:

The Waters Dental Group of Sandwich would like to thank everyone who contributed to help make our 11th annual Halloween candy buy-back a huge success.

Each year, the event continues to grow in one way or another, and once again this year did not disappoint. We had several donations from adults who didn’t have many trick-or-treaters with the weather. Thank you for everyone’s participation. The grand total came in at an estimated weight of 816.62 pounds. 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 who donated. It takes united communities such as these to come together for this great cause! A big thank you to the Operation Care Package and the Plano American Legion Auxiliary Unit 395 for shipping the candy and children’s coloring pictures and letters 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 participating, 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 additional information, call 815-786-2146 or visit The Waters Dental Group online at www.watersdentalgroup.com.
