November is the month that we should remember to be Thankful. I am thankful that the sun has finally returned and that we didn’t experience the flooding that occurred in the Carolinas. I know that as I sit down to Thanksgiving dinner this year, I will remember to say a prayer for all of the people who lost their lives and their homes in the flood.
Thank you so much to the committee who worked tirelessly for the past several months to organize our Sixth Annual Golf Fore Charity event: Jay and Marlyn Patouillet, Suzanne Taylor, Jim Mein, Kathy and Darryl Fulton, Steve Zahorodny, Jon Subacz, Pam Yagoda, Susan Staudt, Caroline Zipkin, and Nicole Shippy. Thank you to all members of the BSSL and community volunteers who helped with registration of the golfers, the silent auction and who were outside on the golf course during the wind and the rain. Finally a special thank you to the 86 golfers, without you this year wouldn’t have been such a huge success. Even with the terrible weather, you showed up. Thank you to our community for purchasing raffle tickets and bidding on our silent auction items. Once again because of the generosity of so many, the BSSL will continue to help charities in Cherokee County. Thank you to Meg Rogers and her staff at Cherokee Family Violence Center for attending our luncheon and sharing information about CFVC’s role in helping families afflicted with violence.
Thank you in advance for placing your plastic bag at the curb on NOVEMBER 7th. Your non-perishables will be delivered to MUST ministries in Canton. We will help to restock their shelves in preparation for Thanksgiving. Help us along with surrounding communities and churches take care of families in Cherokee county who are less fortunate. MUST notified us that there is a special need for Cranberry Sauce, Canned Sweet Potatoes, Boxes of Mashed Potatoes, Mac and Cheese, Cornbread Muffin Mix, and packets of Gravy Mix. If you have any questions please contact Susan Gaines at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you members of the BSSL for always asking, “What else can we do?” See you on November 19th at the Terrace at 7PM. Don’t forget that this is the last meeting of 2015 and that elections for next year’s board will be taking place. Our SCAT item for this month is children’s winter coats. This month we will be decorating a Christmas tree at R.T. Jones Library in Canton and next month we will be singing at a senior center. For additional information, please contact Ruth Clark, President of the BSSL, at RuthJClark1953@comcast.net.
