be thankful challenge: Wreath Stroll at the Village of Kensington Place - 12/10/10 04:03 PM
What a clever way to raise funds!  Last night I attended a "Wreath Stroll" - a holiday fundraiser at The Village at Kensington Place in Meriden Connecticut.  Local businesses were asked to donate wreaths which were then purchased by the highest bidder after a 2 hour silent auction.  All of the proceeds from this wonderful event went to the Midstate Cancer Center.

I was very impressed in so many ways ...
First of all the display of creativity in the wreaths was amazing. A few of the themes included (but were certainly not limited to) wreaths decorated with … (8 comments)

be thankful challenge: Scenes from Visit with Santa at the Elks Club in Southington - 12/07/10 04:06 PM
On Saturday December 4th I took my daughter to see Santa at The Southington Elks Lodge. The cost of admission? A non-perishable food item or monetary donation for Southington's Bread for Life.  At this wonderful event we got a FREE picture with Santa, enjoyed many fun arts and crafts and listened to a great performance by the Southington High School Band!  And I almost forgot the goodies at the bake sale - they were yummy! 

We are grateful to the sponsors of this event: The Southington High School Band Backers and The Southington Elks Club.  All this to support … (5 comments)

be thankful challenge: Christmas Photo Challenge - Spreading Cheer at the Bank - 12/01/10 10:05 AM
Here's my son Tim. He just opened a Savings Account at TD Bank on Main Street in Southington CT. He chose to open account here because they give kids $10 when they read 10 books during the summer. He's a pretty smart guy who knows easy money when he sees it!  He got this silly elf hat as a free gift for opening his new savings account in addition to a gift card to download a free song onto his iPod. They sure know what kids like at TD Bank North. I thought I'd commemorate the moment with a photo of … (8 comments)

be thankful challenge: A New Challenge - Day 1 - 11/22/10 01:16 AM
This is going to sound terrible, but over the years I've grown to HATE the Christmas holiday season.  The reasons are too numerous to mention and they're irrelevant because I've decided this year I'm going tp change all that. 
I'm putting myself up to another Challenge.  I'm hoping it will snap me out of the funk I've been in lately and get me back into the routine of blogging daily.  My super star friends Tish Lloyd, Melissa McKinney, BLiz Spear, Margaret Rome and many others have managed to maintain their commitment to blogging DAILY, but I just couldn't keep up the … (38 comments)
