We kicked the year off with a workshop at the central library - it was a lot of fun and as always we met new friends and sent about 30 new lighted Christmas balls out into the city. Beth Sheffield is our hostess for that event and it has always been a lot of fun.
The next event was the Sunset Hills workshop held in our driveway and street on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Here a just a couple of shots from that time.
Next....Off to Morehead Hospital in Eden for a workshop there. Here are some photos from that fun day!!
Ferrum College in Ferrum Virginia - some really nice action photos from that Sunday afternoon workshop with faculty and friends there........
Then - up from the basement storage come our personal Lighted Christmas Balls about 40 of them - who is counting?
all ready to be tested, repaired and hung - this is an annual event, everyone!!
Just to make the season a little more fun - News 2 features Jonathan and gives some great plugs for the Shine the Light on Hunger Food Drive and secures some Lighted Christmas Balls for the weather garden at News 2
Fast forward a bit to the Running of the balls - a genius idea from our friend Nick Loflin. I didn't really ever imagine it would be as huge as it was. It was a huge success - even in less than ideal weather. With bad weather comes muddy shoes - the photo of those was just TOO GOOD to pass up.
Just some random shots from around the Sunset Hills neighborhood - some of our favorite things xoxoxo
The Primetimers group was so kind to ask Jonathan to come share the story with them at their annual Christmas party. They did a very nice food drive there and sent us home with a nice cart of great things to add to the trailer. Thanks Christ United Methodist - it was a fun time with you!
All the rest are just pretty lights and evidence of a completely successful fund and funds for Shine the Light on Hunger - a project solely dedicated to feeding the hunger through our local food banks -
Greensboro Urban Ministry and Second Harvest.
We were lucky to have a good number of lighted Christmas balls still shining for our first and only(to date) snowstorm.
