Christmas in July
DMES student collects school supplies to help classmates
Thomas Churchwell has one goal this summer, to make sure 10 of his classmates at Doby’s Mill Elementary School (DMES) have all the supplies they need to start the school year. Thomas is the grandson of Paul and Sarah Towns of Elgin, who have a 13-year tradition of holding the “Towns Family Christmas” at their home on Charlie Horse Circle. Each year all the proceeds from the Christmas lights are donated to Camp Chemo.
