All I can say is WOW! What a wonderful town we live in. The Thanksgiving Basket program was so full of wonderful volunteers that everything went smooth. The number of people who showed up was amazing. There are too many great people to thank that I am sure that I would forget someone.
To Bob at Safeway, thanks for all the extra effort you made this year to help us out. Mark at Save U More, you are always there for us and your employees went above and beyond so we thank you so much. To all the people who gave financial aid you are truly special. A big thank you goes to The Sons of the American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary, The K-Bay Marine Detachment, Homer Emblem Club No. 350, Kachemak Bay Rotary and Downtown Rotary, Northern Enterprises, Homer Elks Lodge and all the many individuals who sent any kind of a donation. Every single dollar counted. This is a community effort and you again came through.
I enjoyed working with the Salvation Army and hope to do so again next year.
My heart is full of gratitude and a thank you hardly seems enough. If you forgot to donate, I still can accept donations. My next project will be helping with the Share the Spirit so, again, all donations are welcome.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
