  The stories are the best! One of our favorite parts of ringing the bells for Real Estate Wednesdays is hearing all the wonderful experiences people have had with The Salvation Army. One of Those Callaways wonderful bell-ringers, Kathy, met an amazing couple with a great story to share. “Pete, and his bride of 67 years, Viginia, visited my kettle… and this is their story.”   “I’m 88. I was born in 1928 but, during the  [ Read More ]
