Hope everyone enjoyed their Turkey Day. Mine was nice, no drama this year. Just food, wine and family as intended. It's very difficult for me to believe that the holidays are upon us once again. I say it every year, but this one seems to have gone by even faster. Oh well, cant change it, so deal with it.
Jeff and I are dealing with it with yet another project.... Oy!! It"s something Jeff has wanted to do for years...and this year is it! We are selling fresh cut Christmas trees in our parking lot....
Are we crazy, nuts daft?? Yes to all!! No-really, with all sincerity, we are doing this not for profit, but for charity. All proceeds are being spread among four charities of our choice.
Alzheimer's awareness-Autism speaks-ASPCA-Fisher House (provides lodging to veterans and military families receiving treatment at military medical centers). The tress are being sold at a minimum cost as to sell as many as possible and provide more donations to our charities. We are starting tomorrow Saturday the 26th and continuing until December 18th or till trees are gone. Even if you don't use a live tree, you can purchase a tree and we will provide it to a family who might not be able to afford a Christmas tree. I will be providing homemade cookies, hot coco on most days, and for every giving tree purchased your name will be put in a raffle to win a 2017 Social membership to St. Bernard GC. We are very excited about this project and are enjoying all the work that goes into such a venture. It truly is a labor of love.
So if you're in need of some Christmas cheer....stop by, say hello and get in the spirit!
Look forward to seeing you.
