I really enjoyed the Dec. 31 issue of the Butner-Creedmoor News. I enjoyed reading all of the articles and especially loved reading 2020 in Review. I must admit that there are not many times when I finish reading the paper where I put it down with a smile on my face like I did when I finished reading this issue. There were so many uplifting articles of goodwill.
I am a lifetime reader of this newspaper and have always enjoyed seeing the photos and reading about community happenings. I am also a member of the Butner Community Association and I enjoy being a part of this group of people who host fun local events as well as being with the people of my community and having a great time. Unfortunately with this pandemic, almost all of our 2020 events could not happen.
Through my isolation during this pandemic, this newspaper has helped me to feel like I am still part of the community. I thank you for that. I am very thankful for Amanda Dixon and all that she contributes to the newspaper. In addition to being a great sports writer, I find her to be quite good at writing other types of articles as well. I am so very thankful for her commitment to the newspaper and to our community.
I have also appreciated the weekly COVID-19 updates on the front page. This of course is not good news, but it is necessary and I love how it is presented — clear and simple. Please continue to report these numbers in this manner.
Thank you for all that you do and for keeping us all connected during this time of isolation in our homes. May God bless all the contributors of this newspaper with health, wisdom and guidance this new year as you continue to hold our community together through communication.
