Sheriff Bill Overton kicked off Operation Christmas Tree 2018 this afternoon (Tuesday, October 16th).

Overton said, "In the past two years, since this charity's inception, The Office of The Sheriff has been able to help 51 families in Franklin County during Christmas. By pre-selling Fraser Fir Christmas Trees for only $30 a tree, all proceeds are directed to this cause. Toys, clothing and food are given to those less fortunate with the hopes of making Christmas a little brighter." Overton went on to state how anyone wishing to pre-purchase a beautiful tree can contact Deputy H. L. Nolen at 540-814-1724.

"In 2016, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated that nearly 15,000 lives were saved in our nation by using seat belts. Many in our county are already doing this, but some are not. I am encouraging all to wear your seat belts, it is a proven life saver and, in many cases, reduces the risk of more serious injury.
