Area made benefit possible

To the editor:

The Ohio Valley is truly a wonderful place to live. In January, Iron City Distributing in Mingo Junction held a benefit spaghetti dinner for one of our fellow employees, Jeff Wurschum. Our benefit was an overwhelming success and would not have been possible without the support and donations that we received from the special people of the Ohio Valley.
