  • Area gives 59 pounds of candy for soldiers

    It’s not often one associates pounds of candy with a dental practice, but area families are working with a local dentist to send sweetness overseas.

    Dr. Sarah Proctor of Elizabethtown called for the second year in a row for residents to donate candy at her dental practice on Dixie Avenue in Elizabethtown during the Proctor Cosmetic & Family Dentistry’s “Trick or Teeth” event.

    Residents who aren’t patients there gave candy at a rate of $1 per pound and free fluoride treatment.
