To the Editor,

The 2nd Annual Guns vs. Hoses softball game was an amazing success this year. On behalf of the Italy Police Department and Italy Fire Department, we would like to thank everyone that attended and supported us this year. We raised over $2,500 for the Italy Shop With a Cop and had so much fun doing it. Because of the generosity of our sponsors, volunteers and everyone that participated, we will be able to make Christmas bright for several of our local children.

We would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for sponsoring this year:

Atmos Energy, Boze-Mitchell-McKibbin Funeral Home, Carlisle Chevrolet, Citizens National Bank, Ellis County BBQ, Eventos Silva, First State Bank, The Garcia Family, Hill County Pawn, Italy ISD,, Franky Jackson, Luke Jackson, Ray & Barbara Loveless, Magic Miror, Melissa McClain Lewis, Brian & Karen Mathiowetz, Luke & Teri Murdock, Rocket Ranch, Stanley Motors, Tri-County Appliance, Uptown Caf, and Walmart Hillsboro.

Diron Hill,

Italy Chief of Police
