A letter from Loraine Dodson- Whispering Pines Trailer Park, West Durham: "Dear Friends- Please join our family for holiday festivities at our trailer, row M, lot 16. There will be snacks, a little karaoke, and a lot of love as we celebrate the season together. No need to bring anything except yourselves, RSVP if you're coming. See you soon! Love, Loraine."
