Teach me to Sing!

“Pan, who and what art thou?" he cried huskily.
"I'm youth, I'm joy," Peter answered at a venture, "I'm a little bird that has broken out of the egg.” 

Our October, 2015 We Can meeting  was held at Carol's home.  We collected items to fill Christmas socks for soldiers.  We all thought that this year's socks (which are sewed at the American Fork Humanitarian Center) were the cutest ever.

    We tried a new system for filling the socks, which seemed to work much better than our past system.   The socks were jammed full of things such as playing cards, paperback book, hand warmers, pens, candy, gum, mints, chapstick, hand sanitizer, tissues, etc.  Each lady had previously signed up to bring something to help fill the socks.  We wrapped some of the items to help make opening the sock a more festive experience.  We will be donating 12 Christmas stockings.

Filling the socks didn't take very long, so we also worked on making our garland for the Festival of Trees tree a little bit longer.  Carol is 5 feet tall, so we stretched the garland out on the floor and used Carol as a "yard stick" to estimate how long the garland is.  Carol actually laid on the floor so we could measure!  What a good sport she is!   We also were busy making shape toys for the A.F. Humanitarian Center.  It was a busy and productive morning.

We enjoyed a yummy potluck lunch.  Those in attendance were Paulette, Paula, Vila, Carol, Janine, Barbara, Lynn, and Carolyn.

“If you cannot teach me to fly, teach me to sing.”
