Here I go
again thanking everyone for a job well done. Special
thanks to Joe Moore and Team Captains for the long hours they
spent at the tree lot, resulting in a great year.
Excellent sales in trees and wreaths and we all enjoyed good
food while working there too.
A big thank you to Paul and Judy Hamby for buying and
distributing gifts to our Christmas family. We collected
so much food, after giving to the family, we were able to donate
a truck load to the Hopewell Food Bank in honor of John Cutrona.
As we ended 2008, we started 2009 with a BANG! (or was that Bill
Rawls trying to get the karaoke machine to work). We at
least got one song from "Old Blue Eyes".
John L did a great job setting up the building and furnishing us
with good music to bring in the New Year. Because of the
small group remaining, we decided to have a breakfast on
Wednesday, January 7th. Hope to see everyone there.
Plans are in the works for a Super Bowl get together.
Spread the word and let's get as many to attend as we can.
I hope at this time to show my appreciation for all your hard
work so far this year. More information to follow!!
In closing I hope you and your families had a Blessed Christmas
and Happy New Year.
Monthly words of wisdom: "Life isn't about waiting for the
storm to pass, It's about
learning to dance in the rain.
And as always, "Happy trails to you, till we meet again".
