We picked up about 6 poinsettias to deliver to homebound from our church Saturday, and I delivered 5 today (we had delivered one on Saturday on the way home from Church, it wasn't that far from where we lived). I loved seeing how happy the peop... Read more

Well we did great with the Shop N Grab Fundraiser, we cleared $1100. Which was wonderful. The first place winner actually got $400 worth of groceries, because the manager of the store talked to us and they donated an extra $100 so instead of $... Read more

I didn't get to do much today, well I did, but not like yesterday. I kind of just worked on our daughter's wedding things, made a few calls (going up with our daughter on Saturday to pick up her wedding dress, how exciting), but that's about it... Read more

Well, I (those of us who sold tickets at the two places) made the amount that we needed to break even, and that doesn't include all the others who were selling tickets, so that's pretty good. Plus we had about $100 more, including donations. ... Read more

Well not sure how much I'll be around this weekend, I have to be at Sentry to sell tickets for the Shop N Grab from 8 am until 10 pm both Saturday and Sunday because only one other board member volunteered to do it, which sucks. So it's up to m... Read more

I want to start by thanking you all; you know, I read all of what you had to say and thought, "wow...that's usually what I tell other people, I never imagined I'd be told the same thing". But I needed to hear it. The other day was bad for... Read more

Ever have one of those days when you just want to sit and cry because things look hopeless? When I first started SP almost 2 years ago I imagined myself being this 180 pound beauty; but instead I'm still at the weight I was, having lost som... Read more

Wow, don't think this will slow down until this playground is built, I swear I've either been emailing, talking on the phone, or driving somewhere every second of the day. Alright, that's a little exaggeration, but sure seems like it. I'm exha... Read more

I figured I showed what the inside looks like, so tonight I'd share the outside, and more of the inside, but what the lights look like. I hope you all have had an incredible day. I'm a little late, but it's because so much is going on with... Read more

Thank you, everyone, you really made my day, today. I do the poinsettia because my father in law had a massive heart attack on Christmas eve, I went over and did CPR and kept him alive until the paramedics came, but they had me continue com... Read more

Seemed like today was just going so wrong, but I got to the interview, it went great. Steve Benton is such a great guy, makes you feel so comfortable. I also stopped at the Credit Union, and the Sentry Store to ask if we could sit with a ... Read more

Had such a great fundraiser; sold a LOT of baked goods and Wrapped quite a bit of gifts, and sold a bunch of tickets, both for the dog and the Shop N Grab. At church I got to speak at both services and then afterwards, people donated money ... Read more
