Pop tops from Texas

Former Atmore resident Dottie Albert brought a package from Texas last time she visited Atmore.

Dottie, who now resides in Country Lane Senior Community in McKinney, Texas, saw fellow resident Mary McAllister throwing away cans with pop tops still intact. She told her friend how useful the pop tops can be in fund-raising efforts.

Well, when Dottie was planning a trip this way, Mary gave her several bags of pop tops to bring to Alabama. Dottie dropped them off at the Atmore News office and asked that we get them to Suzanne Barnett, who heads pop top collection efforts for Ronald McDonald House.

Mayor Jim Staff joined Suzanne in accepting the pop tops from Mary and Dottie. Atmore area residents are very supportive of Ronald McDonald House.
