Let's talk turkey! Have you ever been hungry and not have enough money to buy food? Did you ever skip a meal so another family member could eat? Unfortunately, this is happening right here in Connecticut. You could help make a positive difference. For the last 16 years a number of volunteers have been feeding children in need. Lydia M. Child said, "An effort made for the happiness of others lifts us above ourselves."
You're invited to join me for the 2009 Thanksgiving Basket Brigade! It will be held on Saturday, Nov. 21. We'll have Starbucks Coffee and danish waiting for you! We could use your help that day and we need your donations to help our growing fund-raising effort. I tell people that if they come, they will thank me for telling them about this wonderful gathering. Every year, my participation makes me really feel like the holidays are here.
