Editor’s Note: It was brought to our attention that we, unintentionally, left a line out of Linda Henderson’s “Letter to the Editor” last week. We apologize for the error and are republishing the letter, in its entirety.

Letter to the Editor,

On April 29, Hundred Area YoungLife had their fourth annual Variety Show and first ever Chili cook-off. The evening was fun and successful due to a collaborative effort of caring adults, energetic teenagers, local talent, great cooks, and the generous businesses in our surrounding community.

We would like to thank the following, local businesses and their owners for support: Whitehill’s Auto Body, Hundred Lumber Company, Belko Foods, B&C Deli, Union Bank, Hundred Insurance Agency, Beauty Unlimited, Hundred Farm Supply, Lori’s Cup of Joe, Hundred Laundromat, Rt. 250 Corner Cafe, First Exchange Bank, Miss Blues Restaurant, Amtower Auto Supply (NAPA), Green Acres Gas & Grocery, Heavenly Hoagies, Tennant Funeral Home, Clay-Battelle Community Health Center, The Pet Stop, Dairy Dream, Wild Wonderful Wicks, Henderson Farm’s and Local United Methodist Churches (Hundred, Rush Run, Thomas Chapel & Littleton).

We would also like to thank these businesses for donating supplies to the Chili Cook-Off: Wetzel County Chamber of Commerce, Wendy’s, Pizza Hut, KFC and Witschey’s of New Martinsville, and Pepsi Co. of Moundsville.

Thanks to all the talented people who participated in the Variety Show, Cooked Chili, and all who attended this fun-filled night.

With everyone participating this night was a huge success! The money raised will go directly to the Hundred Area YoungLife (YoungLife WV 52) camp account and help reduce camp cost. YoungLife is a non-denominational youth organization that has been in existence for 70 years and five years in the Hundred Area. We are sending two adult volunteer leaders and 16 teens to Rockbridge, Virginia July 13-18.

On behalf of the Hundred YoungLife Committee thanks again for your blessings and support of our local youth.

Sincerely Yours,

Linda Henderson
