Many neighbors are getting ready to enjoy a free Chirstmas turkey, thanks to the generosity of affiliated motor cycle clubs in the area. This has become an annual event and follows a full turkey dinner given at Thanksgiving.
This year has been especially difficult on many a family budget. Layoffs, challenges to fixed-incomes, rising costs for groceries, heating fuel, medicines, and many other basic household items, have all been hard blows. It is extraordinarily generous, for any group or organization, to demonstrate such charitable giving; and it is appreciated beyond words. Many receipients would otherwise face the holidays making substitutions or may even have to go without. Thank You.
While we are at it, a sincere 'Thank You' to the Community Center Food Bank for their twice weekly food cupboard. These folks operate rain or shine, snow or whatever; as witnessed by Monday's regular offering. Somebody nominate them for one of those Jefferson Awards. They deserve it and our collective appreciation for their good works.
"Every little bit helps;" as the old saying goes. May God Bless.
