Dear Members of Bryant Service Club:
Just received your Christmas package and words just cannot express my appreciation for your kindness and thoughfulness [sic].
Honestly gang it sure makes one feel glad all over to think and know that the Bryant Service Club is still plugging along. I still can remember old "Nick" endlessly preaching and almost reaching into our pockets to contribute what ever we could for the boys. Some of us thought it funny but believe me it sure is appreciated~I know now, as I'm on the other end.
Thanks again gang and do keep up the good work.
Note change of address:
