Ralph Boyle, father of Luke Boyle, who has been stationed in Afghanistan since October, receives a donation from Loyalty Riders’ Pat Putnam. Luke, originally from Moriah, has received 39 boxes filled with supplies for him and his troops furnished by family, friends, community members and businesses. A collection box for supplies is located at the Moriah town hall. Collection tins to help cover postage costs are located at Boyea’s in Moriah and Frank’s Knotty Pine in Port Henry. Valentine Day cards and heart candy are now being collected for shipment in mid-January. Troops have also requested boxed soups, tuna packages and candy.
