Expressing Gratitude

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." ~ John F Kennedy

Just a few of the stockings we stuffed for Soldiers serving in the Armed Forces
 Tuesday, November 2nd was a busy day for the We CAN Humanitarian group.  We met at Carolyn's home and stuffed stockings to send to soldiers overseas.  Ladies brought toiletries, food,  candy, breath mints, chewing gum, playing cards, and other useful items and each sock was topped off by a Patriotic Bear that the soldiers can share with a child in the area they are serving.

 We also filled stockings with pet treats to be sold at the Gift Shoppe at the Festival of Trees.

 We also cut out more coupons to be sent to soldiers and their families.  Carolyn received a Thank You note from one of the bases that we sent coupons to a couple of months ago ~ they were very grateful for the coupons they received.
