I had promised all of you that we as a family would also pay all of your kindness forward and we have been trying to that. I am very excited to tell you that we have booked a venue for Georgia's Journey of Hope this coming October. It will be on the 3rd from 12:30-4:30 at Glenwood Community Centre. As many of you know this is not an event that we can put on ourselves and will be hoping that many of you will step up once again or for the first time. If you aren't able to help out I am hoping that you will at least write the date down on your calendar and commit to buying some tickets when they become available. The call for volunteers will go out some time in August. Last year, we raised over ten thousand and we are hoping to beat that this year.
The girls and I have also agreed to join in the fundraising to help purchase Dakin a new handicapped accessible vehicle. Dakin's story is one that you can follow by clicking along the right hand side of the screen. The girls will be holding a lemonade stand outside our house with all proceeds being sent to Dakin's family. It looks like most of the other families that have signed up are doing it the weekend of April 23rd-24th. I'm not sure if that date will work for us because our weather is still a bit cool. We will keep you posted.
Love to you all,
PS While the birds didn't all leave this winter, they are now back by the dozen. In fact, their chirping woke me up this morning. Couldn't help but smile! Happy Birthday Baby Girl! We love you!
