Triumphant Cross Church is seeking used books for fundraiser. Want to get rid of your used books? The Triumphant Cross Lutheran Church of Salem is raising money through donations of new and used books, CDs, DVDs, videos, records, and audio books. The group has recently placed a drop-off donation container to collect these items from community members who’d like to re-purpose their used goods, while also helping the church raise money. The group will be paid on an ongoing basis for all items collected in their donation container. The gray book donation container, distinguished by its purple and yellow ‘Got Books?’ signs, is located in the parking lot of the church at 171 Zion Hill Road in Salem. This program is an ongoing fundraiser and donations can be made by the public at any time. All funds raised through the collection of these donations will benefit the church’s general funding.

In last week’s In My Opinion by Jane Lang, a portion of the fifth sentence ws indavertently omitted. The sen- tence should have read, in its entirety, as, “speaking with one gentleman hauling many oversized, ornamented flags, he was hoping to make enough money to get to Washington by April 15; he was from Ohio, a veteran of our country who had health insurance paid for and run by our Government.” Also, the title should have read, Not My Kind of Tea Party.
