Christmas Party 2018
« on: December 08, 2018, 04:49:17 PM »
Despite the iffy weather our Christmas party was a success. We had a good turnout, great food, and a good time! Thanks to all who attended. We turned all of the Officers and I think all of the board members.

We managed to put together a short notice fund raiser for Coker Creek Elementary School with cash donations and a fund raiser item that came to almost $500. With our matching funds from the Chapter we will be sending them $1000 for supplies that are badly needed. Good work to the team, members, and guests!

I would also like to thank Coker Creek Village for the great food and hospitality!

We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Be safe and see you next year,

Al

I really wish everyone could have been with me at the welcome center when I presented the check to Mary Jane, she was speechless with such a beautiful heart warming smile on her face, we both teared up and hugged.
Guys and Gals, those moments, they are worth every mile I drive to be a part of our group, I want to give a extended thank you to everyone who helped out and donated. Many blessings to everyone this Christmas season and to let all you die hard members who show up, who make the group solid and never turn away from helping the wonderful teachers and families of our little town of Coker Creek.
We make a difference in the lives of so many young people that we will never get a chance to actually know, but when your around town and in the area, look at a young child and know it was because of you, they keep growing and learning. Be proud of that.
Its a true honor to call all of you, my friends.

Many Blessings, Love and Light.

Daryl, with the club doing that for the kids, and teachers, at the school, there is no better way start the Christmas season. They deserve the boost, and I'm sure everyone in the club will reap the warm feelings of doing something special for them, in return. I feel that the value of the colors in my pan is nothing, compared to the value, to me, of the friends I've made since I've been a member at Coker Creek. I had a wonderful time yesterday, and wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. Already looking forward to the February meeting. Don Staton.

This was the email that Mary Jane sent me about how our donation was used. We not only took care of all the teachers needs, we was able to help with a staff donation and help purchase gifts for 5 kids total. What a blessing!

Daryl,

Have I had fun - there were two girls not picked and I had to buy for two boys and another girl - everybody seems to be kind to Angel Tree buyers - am having to go to Murphy to get a DVD for one of the girls. I'm giving $100.00 bill to each of the 7 teachers and there should be over $150.00 for the staff. Hope this ok.

Thank you so so much.

That is great! We were able to do even more than I thought we would do monetarily and the money went further than I had imagined.

Thanks to everyone that contributed and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!

Wishing a Merry Christmas to all, and a Happy New year. Many thanks to Al, Daryl, Chuck, and all the others who've helped to make our chapter a success. It's a great thing the club has done for the kids and teachers at the school. My hat is off to all. Looking forward to 2019. Thanks, Don.
