Tobacco Depot Appreciation Day

Appreciation Day at Tobacco Depot in Blairsville, Georgia

The Saturday before Veteran's Day is Customer Appreciation Day at Tobacco Depot in Blairsville, Georgia. The Ramseys celebrate Veteran's Day every year by giving prizes and gifts to their customers and friends. Judy Ramsey greets everyone with a friendly smile. She is always available to help customers and somehow manages to remember all of their names.

The 5th Annual Celebration was a huge success. Burch Crawford won first place prize, a Zippo collectable lighter commemorating the Vietnam Memorial Wall. Jozene King won the second place cash prize and Belinda Kates won third. Guests enjoyed cake, doughnuts, coffee, and interesting conversation. It was a good time for everyone.

December 2007 - Tobacco Depot in Blairsville, Georgia contributes to Give a Gift program

Officer Aaron Stanley recently visited the Tobacco Depot to accept a $500 check from owner, Judy Bailey Ramsey. The $500 donation will go to the Union County Sheriff Department's Give a Gift program. Stanley says, "Judy has been one of our biggest supporters in the Give a Gift program and we sincerely appreciate it."

Judy says, "The Give a Gift program helps lots of families every Christmas and I'm glad we can be a part of it. I want all the people that purchased a chance on the punch-board to know that every dollar went to a good cause."

Judy raised money for Give a Gift by selling chances to win empty cigar boxes. She adds, "Thanks to all the customers that purchased cigars. Everyone wants the boxes!"

The Give a Gift program helps over 100 families every year. The Sheriff's Department hopes to help even more children in 2007 and is depending on generous donations from community members and local Blairsville, Gerogia businesses. The Give a Gift program accepts donations of money and gifts (unwrapped).
