For over 50 seasons of Christmas, I reminded each of my family members about the true Light, by giving them their own personal light. It started when my children were very young and were fascinated by flashlights. I gave each of them a pen light and the tradition began. As the years flew by, the grandchildren were also gifted with flashlights. Each year everyone wondered what the next year’s flashlight would be like.
Our 5th annual FOOD, FRIENDS and FUNdraising event to benefit the Good Samaritan Fund generated $24,765.64 in revenue! This number is a few thousand less than 2017’s total, but more
sponsors, higher Cox Bros. BBQ sales, a generous 50/50 Raffle winner and fewer expenses equal a larger net profit ($21,897.53) than 2017’s tally ($20,985.23).
Lots of people like the smorgasbord fashion of dining, at least occasionally. But another smorgasbord exists, and it’s all around us 24/7/365 & 1/4th. The menu varies with the season, but it occurs throughout our campus as well as our rural hills and valleys. Wild animals dine, without reservations, both night and day, and on an endless variety of goodies, depending upon the species—and time of year.
