Thanks to all who assisted last week as we prepared our nearly 200 gift bags and to those who helped deliver bags last Saturday at the State Veterans Home and Salisbury VA Medical Center. No doubt, our efforts were very much appreciated and I'm sure those who participated felt the joy of giving and of the Christmas season.
We will distribute our remaining bags this coming Saturday in Harrisburg, beginning at 2 PM at The Carillon where there are 6 veteran residents, then to The Oaks Nursing Home where there are 10 veterans. Please meet us by 2 PM at The Carillon so that you can be a part of another successful Christmas project.
Post #523 members -- please forward this to other Post members as I do not have a full email database for your group and want everyone to be aware of this weekend's activity.
Merry Christmas to each of you and thank you for what you do to honor our veterans throughout the year!
Janice MacLeod, Secretary
ALA Unit #523

Here's a link to the newspaper article and photos which appeared in today's Charlotte Observer (Cabarrus section). We felt it was important to thank our community for its upcoming support of another successful Christmas project.
