Dear Editor:

We would like to thank our sponsors for helping to make our first Shred-A-Thon on Oct. 16 a success with over 50 people bringing over 1,800 pounds of personally identifying materials to be shredded on site. This was a free service because of the support of the following sponsors:

Iowa Senior Medicare Patrol, Decorah Bank & Trust, Decorah Police Department, NorthLand Agency on Aging, Luther College, On-Site Destruction and Women, Faith & Finance.

We are hoping to have this free service again in the spring, if anyone missed this event or has more to shred.
