There will be a lot of appreciating going on in the Bumper to Bumper Plaza Saturday.

The businesses located there will be hosting a customer appreciation event, designed to say thank you to people who have bought their goods and services.

But perhaps more importantly, the event will also serve as a drop-off point for people to contribute to a support our troops overseas drive. Comfort items will be collected and then assembled into care packages for military personnel serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
