THE OTHER NIGHT before Christmas, my deaf son, Mike and I were shopping at the west side Homeland for groceries to cook Christmas dinner for my children and grandchildren. I was busy checking my list and filling my basket when you “the Pirate” came down our aisle giving each of us an envelope. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us and everyone else you have helped this season.
Mike loves people and he tries to talk to everyone, but many are hateful to him because they can’t understand his speech and what he is saying. Thank you especially for including Mike. He is so proud and has shown your card to everyone. His rod to fish at the dam was stolen and he hopes to save and buy a new one. You will never give out an envelope more appreciated than Mike’s.
Bless you and your family.
Floretta L. and
MANY volunteers and organizations are doing great things at this time of the year. Recently, I discovered that Fort Gibson State Bank in Fort Gibson, employed a Lady to wrap Christmas gifts for customers free of charge. The response has been great and some employees also pitched in after work to assist in this effort. This was a great idea for us older folks, especially an elderly ex-banker like myself. Thank you Fort Gibson State Bank.
THE MEMBERS of Women of Worth (W.O.W) ministry of New Balm Outreach Ministries would like to thank everyone who made our Cancer Awareness Seminar held on Oct. 20 a success. A special thank you to Cancer Treatment Center of America for allowing Linda Wiland to serve as a presenter at the seminar. She was a blessing! We also want to thank the ladies of the Muskogee Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. for their support and donations, and to our many sponsors for the wonderful gifts/door prizes: Dillard’s, JCPenny, Candy Craze, Economy Drugs, Stage, Rise & Shine, Ruth’s, to name a few. Looking forward to working with you all at the next program.
