The Greenwood Democrat sponsored "Mother of the Year 2014" along with local merchants, mayoral candidates and banks, adding fantastic gifts and beautiful flowers. A heart-felt THANK YOU to each and every contributor who made this occasion a wonderful surprise!

Thank you, with hugs, to my daughter-in-law, Michele Phillips, for three super grandchildren and for nominating me for this honor.

I would encourage all readers to shop local! There is terrific merchandise right here in my hometown, Greenwood.

Sincerely,

Bennie Jane Phillips
