Myself and my Wife traveled to Togus to deliever this years Christmas Gifts, Calendars and Christmas Cards which were made out by the Children of our Parish. This delivery took place on Monday December 16, 2019 During the month of November and December the Parish Social Justice and Peace Director approached our council Program Director and asked if we would be participating with them in purchasing, and wrapping new 2020 calendars as we did last year? From November 5, 2019 through December 12th 2019, a number of the Youth Group students worked on wrapping new calendars for the veterans. This year our council decided once again to purchase calendars in support of this program. The children this year wrote a Christmas card for each of the calendars. A total of 130 calendars and cards were wrapped and prepared for delivery. On December 16th,2019 my Wife and I met with the project leader from Sacred Heart Church, and picked up the calendars Christmas cards and gifts and traveled to Togus to deliver them to the Activity Director of the Hospital. They were very pleased to see us this day, bearing gifts for the veterans once again this Christmas season. We look forward once again in 2020 to be able to supply new calendars t, gifts and Christmas cards to those who have given so much for this great country of ours.
