Next Monthly Luncheon Meeting: Thursday, November 21, 2019

A Message from the President

 

For our family, November is the start of the Holiday Season, with Thanksgiving being at the top of the list. We’re pretty spread out geographically––Ohio, New Jersey, Texas, Florida and now a grandson at college in Virginia.

But, no matter what, we always gather for (as it’s known in our home) Turkey Time. There’s way too much food, but there’s also lots of laughs and love that has to last us until we’re back together again. When we go around the table and say what we’re most grateful for, my husband always says that he waits all year for this day.

We’ve also instilled in our family that it’s important to give to others less fortunate than ourselves; not just at the holidays, but throughout the year. Yet, when Thanksgiving rolls around we realize that there are so many people who will go without a decent meal.

There was recently a posting on Facebook––yes, I sometimes pay attention to that stuff––about giving to those less fortunate. It’s a non-perishable grocery list whereby an individual puts aside a specific item each day, and at the end donates it to a Food Bank. I am using this platform to publish that list and ask you to join me in making this a special Thanksgiving for those in need here in Sarasota and Manatee counties.

Please bring your donations to the November luncheon and I thank you in advance for your generosity.
