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 a great cause - the Southington Bread for Life...
Feeding the hungry has been Bread for Life’s number one priority for over 25 years. Their mission, of course, is made possible because of the generous support received from the Southington Community.
Now more than ever more and more Southington residents require assistance. "We have an opportunity everyday to help one another. There are so many people who are truly hurting. If we can ease their pain by making sure that hunger is not an issue, then we have accomplished our mission,” stated Bill McDougall.

The amazing community spirit is one of the many reasons I love living and working in the Town of Southington AND supporting those in need! (I realize the picture quality isn't the greatest. I'm hoping Santa brings me a new camera for Christmas!)
This is Day 17 of my Be Thankful Challenge. It is so very important to express gratitude because ...."Gratitude creates the most wonderful feeling. It can resolve disputes. It can strengthen friendships. And it makes us better men and women." ~Gordon B. Hinckley
