We successfully completed our temporary elf duties for the local Salvation Army, and we are now happily resuming the life of wayward retirees! We are dog tired, but we held up better than we thought we would, LOL. Thank goodness for the successful treatment of my knee two weeks ago! Among other duties, we helped organize the bike donations. We didn’t count up how many there were, but we would guess over 500 shiny sets of wheels! Whew! Even though it taxed us physically, we had a great time. We were happy to see friends we met last year and fortunate to make some new friends this year.
Because of the Salvation Army, Christmas is a little brighter for some families in our area. The Salvation Army provides assistance for some of the poorest of the poor in our communities, and they also provide relief aid during natural disasters. If you see a Salvation Army bell ringer this week and in years to come, please do me a favor! Please stop and put some money in the kettle! Thank you and God bless!
