I want to express my appreciation for your generosity in support of The Ruth Mailbag Group. Your personal commitment was incredibly helpful and allowed us to reach our goal. Your assistance means so much to me but even more to the moms, babies, children, elderly and shelter pets. Thank you from all of us.
Fourteen of us got together at the Guinea Fowl Restaurant for lunch on the 3rd December. It was a lovely outing and a great time to relax and enjoy each other’s company, our thanks to the management and staff for their hospitality and great service. Everybody seemed to enjoy their goody bags and it gave us all some new ideas for crafting in the New Year.
I spent a great deal of time packing and delivering gifts, first to the residents of the Juana Maria Home for the Frail Aged, the kiddies in the paediatric wards, staff of the nursery and maternity ward, moms and babies in maternity and babies in the nursery. Special word of thanks to Mark Fountain for playing Santa the day we visited and gifted the kiddies in the paediatric wards and for assisting with the carrying when we gifted the nurses. Also a very, very big thank you to Barbara, Francis, Mark’s friend and Retha for helping with all the gifting, to quote Francis, she makes a very good “pack donkey” and just loves visiting. To those who are not familiar with the layout at the state hospital it is a very long walk along the walk ways from the parking lot to the various wards, you really need to get your walking shoes on and have many hands to help carry all “Santa’s” heavily laden bags. Once again, to Santa and ALL his helpers, I couldn’t have done it without you. Bless you and thank you!!!
