Nice to have Merry (Hunter) Bellig come to the meal site to greet her mom and other friends last week. She came especially to pick up her mom Deranda and take her back to Minneapolis for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Tony and Darla Parsley want to thank everyone who donated coats, boots, mittens, gloves and “hoodies” and put them in their garage. Darla said some were new with the price tags still on them!! The truck from Rock Valley’s “Justice for All” came and loaded over 200 coats. They also picked up boxes at Closet to Closet. Thank you Tony and Darla for this great work of charity! You will be blessed.
Two dear, kind ladies from St. Adrian’s Ladies Aid made dozens of “ditty bags” and filled them and then delivered them to the St. Francis House in Sioux Falls! “Ditty bags” are small bags that are tied at the top and filled with a towel, wash cloth, soap, shampoo, comb, tooth paste and brush etc. that a homeless person would need. Perhaps some people come for a warm meal and would appreciate a shower at some mission and they would receive a “ditty bag”. Thank you ladies, you will be blessed!

Etta Schroeder accompanied her son Kevin to a beautiful service of gratitude that was held November 12th at the Minneapolis Convention Center Auditorium in Minneapolis, MN. The service was to honor the donors who donated their bodies for the continuing education of medical doctors and dentists. Etta and her late husband Dave made that decision before he became ill. It is a very special and rewarding decision and they have been approached by quite a few doctors thanking them for their unselfish act. Each survivor’s family was given a small paper ornament filled with wildflower seeds with instructions to plant them in the spring. It is a reminder of what the donor has done to improve medical and dental services to all!

Too much football? I was watching Pittsburgh and Baltimore at 10:30pm! The quarterback for Pittsburgh was Leftwick, I thought that was two names Left Wick! Another player name was Foote. The Pittsburgh Steelers had new yellow and black striped shirts and yellow and black leggings. I thought they looked like a swarm of bumble bees! Really time to go to bed, too much can make a person dizzy!
