Praise for Cleburne Fire Department
This thank you letter is long overdue. On two occasions this past year, my family had firsthand experience with Cleburne fire and rescue. The folks with the Cleburne Fire Department exhibited kindness, compassion and consideration during the exercise of their duties. My family and I were pleased with their care. They arrived quickly, assessed the situation and took appropriate action in both instances. It is a great comfort to me to know the quality of care they provide.
Thank you Cleburne Fire Department. May you be blessed as you continue to perform exemplary care throughout our city.

Thanks for help with school supplies
On behalf of over 600 children who were assisted with school supplies, a heartfelt thank you is sent to each person who donated school supplies in the APPLE TREE boxes that were placed in many Johnson County churches and businesses.
The committee wishes to also thank each location that permitted an APPLE TREE to be placed in their locations.
Cash donations in the APPLE TREE account at Pinnacle Banks filled the supply shortfall and are deeply appreciated.
We are already planning next year’s back to school event — please pick up school supplies when they go on sale for next year’s effort; please keep the APPLES program in your plans as you budget next year’s donations.
It is amazing what can be accomplished when Johnson County residents and organizations come together and work together. More than 600 children will begin school this week with backpacks and supplies they might not have had without the help of everyone.
Each of the organizations listed below provided volunteers and those volunteers donated untold hours and exhibited extraordinary dedication: First United Methodist Church, Operation Blessing, Children’s Advocacy Center, American Legion Auxiliary, Salvation Army, East Cleburne Community Center, Camp Fire USA, Spirit of Sharing. Cleburne ISD, Cook Children’s, Maximus, All Smiles Dental Centers and United Way of Johnson County.
