As This Year Comes to an End
Sertoma wishes EVERYONE a very Happy New Year and hopes that each and every day brings you much joy and good health in 2021. As always, all of our endeavors would never be a success without your generosity and inspiration.
Our recent annual Holiday Food and Toy Drive that was held on December 5th and 6th was considered a grand success beyond our expectations, especially under the stress of the Covid 19 Pandemic. We still marvel at our communities generosity!
A special thanks for the assistance and continued support of fire station #140. This time, we had to receive special permission (due to Covid 19) to simply allow our local fire truck to be present. Needless to say, “gratitude” is an under statement!
Thank you to Ranchers Market, Lakes and Valleys Art Guild, Leona Valley Salon, Jack’s Place, Leona Valley Queens, Leona Valley School, Hemme Hay & Feed, Food 4 Less, The Whole Wheatery, Christine Stoddard, Austin Clark, Cole Overholser, Ray Mullins, Kathy Bramwell, Juanita Kirkpatrick, Michelle McAllister, Linda & John Grimm, Laurie Millard & Grandson Daniel, Scott & Raina Clark, Bob Reader, Colleen Jones, Kathy Owen, Jill Colet, Bev & Dick Brownfield, Charlene Moore, Betty Wade, Karl & Linda Pearcy, KJ Miller, Kristin Talbott, Angie Hughes, Shirley Kraft, Debbie & Guy Thompson as well as many anonymous contributors and folks from outside the community.
Our Food and Toy Drive
Due to the generosity from all those listed above, the Sertoma Food and Toy Drive was able to provide “A Little Holiday Help” to 20 beautiful families — ORIGINALLY, Sertoma planned to provide canned goods and generous gift cards only BUT, our public silently said otherwise and showered us with toys, as well. For the first time, our thoughts were to feed people (some who have lost their jobs) and, AGAIN, our public said otherwise / we listened and are beyond grateful for our communities input. With all said, please read below.
You Are Invited
Keep in mind the Sertoma / “Service to Mankind” organization is always asking for new members. When everything returns to normal, you are welcome to join one of our 8am breakfast meetings at Jacks Place on either the first or third Saturday of each month . We love new ideas and would enjoy meeting you.
