Hi New Friends,
You all helped so much. Tomorrow, there are four ladies joining us to visit the Vets at the Southeastern Veterans Center, Veterans Drive, Spring City, PA 19475. We have 100 letters of gratitude for the Vets, all sent in by all of the wonderful people who read about this project, that just started three days ago! We also have 100 stuffed animals, ready to cuddle, that will add a little merriment to the Thursday morning caper. My 83 year – old mother just gave me fifteen dollars and a five dollar coupon to go to CVS to buy some snacks to bring along. Julie from NJ is picking up a few treats. And my Uncle, also a Vet of that era might come by, with a few packs of “smokes’ for them.
We are going to meet in front of the main building at 9:45 am. I will be bringing a few song books of Christmas carols, in the event that a little singing is the order of the day. I hope to find my favorite holiday book THE POLAR EXPRESS, to possibly read! We are going to play it by ear. You are welcome to join us, the more the merrier! And, if you have any of the following for the men, these items were on their wish list. I was not able to buy these things: hard candy, Life Savers, snacks, stamps, dollars so they can buy things in the Canteen, ballpoint pens, after shave such as Axe, Brut, and Old Spice. There are 8 ladies living there. So, if you have any items such as the above, please come and join us. I have a white van, 2007 Dodge Caravan. It is a small parking lot so you will have no trouble finding me! A million thanks to everybody who took the time to write the letters and offered help in a variety of ways.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
