Kudos & Kindness

Thank you to those who contributed to our Winter Holiday Basket raffle fundraiser. Thanks to gift certificates from many local businesses and the contributions from our parents, we were able to supply three baskets with many family activity items, including valuable gift certificates to patronize local businesses.

We raised $1,219 by selling raffle tickets for a chance to win one of the baskets. My “Pioneers” and I are looking forward to the Environmental Living Program at Sutter’s Fort in May. Thank you, also, to Inn at Heavenly B&B, Fat City Food Company, Wrights Fine Food & Deli, Toy Maniacs, Video Library, Nepheles, Sports Ltd., Tahoe Bowl, Sunsational Tans, Jamba Juice and the city of South Lake Tahoe.

My family and I were very surprised when Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus (the Harnings) showed up at our house a few nights before Christmas.

Thank you for making an old kid believe in Christmas again. The two children we take care of are still talking about the exciting event.

We are so very blessed to have people in our community like the Santa Harnings.

Not only do they donate their time around Christmas, but they also brought gifts for my children.

The money for these gifts comes out of their own pocketbook – not a charity, not donations.

These people are just angels – and now, as for me, I believe. Thank you both so very much.
