Once again this year, Bemis's generosity to the community came through to benefit the Seniors of Shirley. Five men gave up their holiday vacation to work at the Senior Center. During the week, they hung sheet-rock, poured cement, cut grass, stripped floors and did a myriad of other tasks to make the Shirley Senior Center a better place to serve the seniors of town.

Our thanks to Hanoch "Smokey" Boddie, Andrew Hobbs, Buddy Shorey, James Codrington and Martin Valladares of Bemis for all their efforts. I also want to thank Jon Pender and Andy Deveau who spent many hours working with these gentlemen to make it all possible.

People like these and companies like Bemis make this a great place and a great town.
