We want to issue a formal "Welcome" to Major Chris A. Stephens and his wife, Aubrey, as the new leaders of the local Salvation Army Citadel.
They bring their two children, Brittany, 14, and Brian, 13, with them.
Major Chris A. Stephens and his wife, Aubrey.
Yet another new family to join the Clinton County family.
Please, if you see them on the street, say hello.
Or, perhaps, stop by the building at 119 Church Street and greet them.
The Stephens are travelers on the road of spiritual needs, you could say.
The family has worked all over the eastern United States. Lock Haven is their 13th community since 1992.
That is dedication.
That is going where you're asked to go to help others.
The Salvation Army meets a very critical human need in our community: Helping others who, for the most part, cannot help themselves. At one time, it operated a homeless shelter here.
But the agency still does fill that void, when it can or is asked, providing meals and other necessities to those in need.
And don't forget the Salvation Army's store on Main Street. It fulfills a very important role, that of generating donations and revenue the agency needs to help others, while making clothing and other items available at low cost.
The Salvation Army can always use your support. Please consider it.
