This time last year......

Bookmark and Share....we made 5 lighted Christmas Balls with Paulette and Bill...and hung them in the trees overlooking Lake Tillery.  This year, Paulette is in Heaven and we spent this afternoon with Bill making 4 more Lighted Christmas Balls and hanging 8 total in the same yard.  It was a lovely day.  We toasted Paulette and all of our parents when the work was done.  A lovely day and a lovely tradition.  Bill is a stong and sweet man we have been privileged to know for 33 years.

Bookmark and Share

We had a lovely day for the ball party yesterday.  We had approximately 125 famiies there making 170 Lighted Christmas Balls. 

We had a good start on the food collection ( trailer in our carport if anyone wants to drop off any additional food)

We collected monetary donations of:
$415 for Second Harvest &
$272 for Urban Ministry

If you want to drop off any additional monetary donations you can put them in an envelope in our front door.  I will send whatever is dropped off today to the food banks tomorrow.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
