Thirty-two packages were delivered to the Bloom Energy site for Toys For Tots. Many thanks for the members who brought them to the Holiday Reception. The two Bloom Energy employees who accepted them expressed their most sincere thanks for our donation.
Shopping for Needy Children
Stay tuned for more information about shopping for needy children at McVey Elementary School. Typically we get a list of clothing needs for specific kids by this time of year, but with a change in school personnel this year, that was delayed. We will be getting more info in the next few days.
Additionally, we are switching from supporting the needy Downes School families with gift cards to McVey families that correspond to the clothing purchases. $50 gift cards to Walmart will be purchased and presented with their children’s clothing needs, one per family.
Ring the Bell!
Marie Holiday has the signup sheet for helping to Ring the bell for the annual kettle drive for Salvation Army. A few spots are still open. An update will be sent out after the Thursday meeting for anyone who wants to assist.
\Holiday Party brings out Competitive Spirit
Who knew the holidays could be so competitive. There were lots of grab and hide incidents during the Gift Exchange last week. But all was in the spirit of fun and fellowship. Thank you to Bill and the Courtyard staff for your hospitality.
Next Board Meeting Jan. 13 – 8:15, following regular meeting. Minutes and Financials to be sent out to Board members on previous Wednesday. Everyone is welcome to attend the Board meetings. You will get makeup credit for attendance. If you want to know what’s going on, be there.

Thought for the Week:
I don’t think your therapist is supposed to say “Wow” that many times in your first session.
