I hope everyone had a great November and is ready for December!
Thanksgiving is a perfect time express our gratitude to family and friends. Consider this quote from Marcel Proust: “Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
The members of our club make me happy; that is why I hope to see most of you at the Holly Jolly Gala on Tuesday, December 3rd. After the Gala, I’ll update the website with the meeting’s outcome, election results, and lots of pictures.
December is chock-full of cheerful activities — be sure to click on the Events tab to see what we’ve planned — filled with wonderful food, games, and friendship. I’m going to
Busy Hands For Charity
This summer, a small group of our members made over 100 hand-crafted items and then donated these scarves, hats, blankets, and layettes to two wonderful organizations —
Project 150 which offers support and services to homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in the Las Vegas area so they can stay in school through graduation and learn the life skills necessary to be successful. Project 150 collects gently used clothes, toiletries, non perishable food, and school supplies year round. Throughout the year they hold special drives for high school sports equipment, formal wear, blankets and other seasonal items as needed.
The Assistance League of Las Vegas Layettes Program layettes (infant tee shirt, body suit, bib, booties and a cap), along hand-made blankets, sweaters and hats are provided to University Medical Center, Women’s Resource Medical Centers, First Choice Pregnancy Services, Southern Nevada Health District and Nellis Air Force Base new mothers.
I accompanied Angela Zecca, Hands for Charity event coordinator, on her delivery rounds in November. I saw how both organizations were so appreciative of Angela’s and her group’s efforts — every item would help keep a child warm this winter. If you’re interested in donating your time or materials, reach out to Angela at (805) 660-8740 or email her at email@example.com.
