|We have had phenomenal paricipation in all the acivities that occur in December. It all started with setting up the scenes in Fleet Park. The stable is looking a little worse for wear up close, but at a distance it still looks like a stable. Steve's Dad, John, made all new images for the santa scene. You need to check them out up close and personal to appreciate the his artisitic gifts. Many, many thanks John.
We received our first check from the Cartridge collection project. For turning in 35 cartridges, Lasr-lnk sent us a check for $68.00. Steve and Ron B have bundled up another group of cartridges and will be sending them out pretty soon.
The festival of lights concession was a great success this year. For our five hours of actual operation we netted about $500. That pays for one of our Scholarships. Many thanks go to Ron B for purchasing supplies and heading up the setup and takedown effort. We had really good support from members manning the ranks. Ray purchased a new large cooler for meat storage next year. Hopefully soon we can feel confident that we would pass a health inspection.
|Santa visits were fun again this year. We didn't have Bob Tate's voice, but we managed to sing most of our songs. Needed Bob to lead "The Twelve Days of Christmas!!"
We are considering setting up a Storyline phone in conjunction with the Timberland Regional Library. It's just a ghost of an idea now that originated from a Kiwanis International Idea List.
Our Entertainment Book sales project is complete. It looks like we sold real close to 50 books which I think nets us about $300 - 60% of another Scholarship. Many thanks to Ray who seems to have us sell more books each year.
Through our Weekly food bank collection at each meeting, we were able to provide Teri Z with $339 for MHS Foodbowl jail bail. The people at the food bank really depend on Foodbowl to stock their shelves. The High School kids did a great job this year!!!
