OK MEMBERS YOU WANTED LIST OF GIFTS FOR KIDS EARLY THIS YEAR SO I HAVE THEM AND ONLY:
have stepped up and requested names of children. Please contact me via email to let me know. I have 4 kids who are expecting clothing and toys for Christmas from Santa. Let’s not let them down!
Hello to all MARA Members:
Once again the MARA Christmas Party, which will be our 11 th one, will take place Saturday, December 3 rd but our location will change. This year we are going Mexican, that’s right Mexican! I have reserved tables for the El Rancho Grande in West Carrollton 2008 S. Alex Rd for 6:00 PM. I hope many of you will be able to join us.
We had such a success with last year’s adopt a family for Christmas Project that I have (along with our club President, Dale) decided to do the same this year. Therefore, I have a family with 4 children (10 yr girl, 9yr girl, 7yr old boy and a 1 yr old girl) and I have received their list already. Each child has a Christmas list with mainly clothing items and has requested two toy gifts. (You can always purchase additional items if you so desire.)
The names and ages along with their gift request will be given out once you notify me of your intent to participate. I have once again taken on the responsibility for the club; in that each of the four children will receive what they have requested.
Once you have purchased a gift, I ask that you wrap and tag the gift with Name of the child and let me know what item you purchased. You will then bring your gift(s) to the Christmas Party December 3 rd or preferably you will be able to drop your gift off to me or bring to the November club meeting.
Once presents are received, Sam and I will deliver them personally to the family in the following week or so. Also, this year I have requested that we give non-perishable food items (which some club members have already responded by bringing them to the October club meeting) and can be turned in at our November club meeting.
I know that our MARA members will once again step up and make sure that our Christmas Family Project is a success.
Please R.S.V.P. to me by November 14 th with regards to attending the El Rancho Grande evening.
Also please make sure to have your gifts to me by November 30 th .
