I really miss Eleni's comments, and today coming here and not seeing any really made me realize how very much I did. So now I'm just sitting here with tears in my eyes as I type this knowing that there'll be no more jokes or pictures to go to her page and look at, and no more of the banter back and forth. She was really something, and I hope she realized just how many lives she touched and affected while she was here. But I know she's in a much better place, and without all the pain I know she was in..that's the important thing. I hope her husband is able to move forward and get through this very tough time.
Today the guy from the Parks Department and I met with the man from the Masons Council and he agreed to volunteer his time to put in our new plaque wall, which has been sitting for nearly a year and half to be completed. Thank goodness, we never thought it'd get done...God does work in mysterious ways. And the other good news was we got the donation I'd sent in the proposal for..and it was a lot more than we'd expected...$8,400. from the Cronin Foundation. That means we're nearly 1/3 of the way to where we need to be in our need for the $30,000. in order to receive the $70,000. from the City Council. YAY!!
Well back to seeking out more donations and volunteers, I hope you all have a wonderful day..I'll see you tomorrow.
