In conjunction with the Salvation Army's holiday fundraising efforts, Wal-Mart will match donations raised by local mayors and legislators ringing bells in front of Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores between Dec. 3 and Dec. 24. Rockland Mayor Will Clayton will ring a bell for Salvation Army in front of the Thomaston Wal-Mart from 1 to 3 p.m. Dec. 8, followed by City Councilor Larry Pritchett at 4:30 p.m.

All contributions raised by the two men up to $25,000 will be matched by the national Wal-Mart organization.
