....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.

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.
