We've tried to send out individual thank you notes but know that we've missed many of you whose generosity has helped to make our effort so worth- while. With your help our program provided gifts to 81 area nursing home residents in five nursing homes, and lap robes to 28 more. Your generosity left us with suff- icient funds remaining in this .......... project's accounL to enalde us to plan a similar effort during the coming Easter season.

Many many thanks to each and every one of the churches , bus-p incases and individuals who con- tributed their time, gifts and money to these projects. Together you helped make Christmas brighter for those less fortunate, young and old. Tues.
