Empty Stocking Fund organizers held face-to-face interviews with applicants Saturday, Nov. 10 at Lamar County Activity Center and approved the 150 children they feel the charity can afford to provide Christmas gifts for this year.
“We had a great weekend,” said organizer Vicki Forsyth. “I was told people got there about 6:30 a.m. to get in line. When we arrived there were about 30 or so people in line. All the applicants were very nice and respectful, waiting patiently for their face-toface interview.”
