Holiday greetings 

We just wanted to say thank you for your generosity this holiday season!  We had a great time shopping and wrapping presents for our child.   We were also able to help other local people with gifts from the giving tree at the mall.  Everyone remarked about how much they enjoyed the experience.   

    
    
    
    
    
 

Happy December!
