We want to thank everyone for the help we are getting to make our event the best it can be. All food for the event has been donated to us by US Foods with the help of our friend Brooks Ferg. We also worked out a great price for beverages with the help of Roger Wilco Liquor store that includes Yuengling, Miller Light, a variety of wines, and vodka to make our $2 Shots! Last but not least we’d like to thank the community for helping out and giving such a great return to the donation request letters we sent out. As I mentioned before we have 25+ baskets to auction off and we would never have been able to provide these if it wasn’t for your help! Thank you so very much!!!!
As I mentioned before, our clothes drive is coming to an end. They will be picked up in the next couple weeks so we made the beef and beer the official last collection day. Bring all your soft house hold items to Moorestown Lenola’s Fire hall; 229 N Lenola Rd. and there will be a place to drop the bags off! The more we collect the more we earn and the clothes are then donated to those in need! It helps 2 great causes so don’t forget!
We recently received a $4,300 check from Immanuel Baptist Church, YAY, and would like to thank the church as a whole for such a generous donation! With this deposited into the account we are now at an amazing total of $18,000!!! WOHOO!! Thank you IBC for raising all that money and getting us that much closer to CHINA!!! With all that we have raised we can now schedule a date for our trip! It is so exciting to know we are almost there and words can’t describe how blessed we are to have so many people that are helping and support us! It really means so much to us all!
On another note, we are in the works of another event, a Kids Day, at Rita’s water ice. Hopefully some time the end of May, before it gets too hot! If you know of anyone who might be able to help us please let us know. We are thinking face painters, games, maybe a balloon maker, and of course the water ice, maybe more. It should be a great day so keep you eyes peeled for more information on this!
…Now to the important part of the blog… about Dougie, hehe. He wants to walk so badly, but is still working on balance. Lately he will take 2-3 steps here and there with out any help from us. It takes a whole lot of ‘WooHoos’ and ‘you can do it’s’ for him to try. He will get there and then wont stop so I m taking in all the still time we get! Doug also has been popping teeth out left and right! He has about 12 teeth through and more on their way. As exciting as it is to chew food with hard teeth it is definitely proving to be a hard battle for him. He’s also had some ear infections that don’t help the situation at all. He still for the most part is his sweet little self and because of it all I get more cuddle time! I still can’t wait for them all to be through and him to really be himself again!
Thanks again for following Doug’s journey and we hope to see everyone on Friday!
