This is a 2nd call for all our residents who served in the armed forces of all nations and the men and women in our community who served as police officers, fire fighters and first responders.  The service wall plans are moving along. The wall display is to recognize residents living and deceased where the surviving spouse or other relation resides within the estates.

It will have a title at the top stating the purpose.  The name plates below containing the name of the honoree the type of service and dates of service.  Accompanying the wall, I propose having a pedestal, or shelf to hold a photograph album of the honorees.

 

If residents want their picture or their spouse’s picture included on the wall, they will need to fill out an application form. These forms are available in the office.  Check with Valerie to get one, or see me. My information is below. 

 

The picture you provide for use will be copied and returned if you write in pencil on the back of the picture; the name, address and phone number of where it is to be returned.

 Salvation Army Bell Ringers

 (Sent 2019-12-27:Newsletter) SALVATION ARMY BELL RINGING (Report) - 

Report on recent Salvation Army bell ringing effort by Sunshine residents

 

The Salvation Army is synonymous with helping others.  They are well known for helping the disadvantaged during emergencies and for their Christmas programs (Angel Tree) and bell ringing for needy families and their kids.

 

Sunshine has been blessed much over many years helping here in Harlingen with the Friday after Thanksgiving.  A wonderful part of this is that all the funds raised locally are used locally. Bell ringing is a big part of raising the funds.  We raised $1,007.66 this year, more than any other year during the single day effort. The figures were broken down as Pharmacy door $563.88 and $433.78 on the grocery side.  That is a lot of single dollar and small coin donations.

 

A little factoid from the SA literature (Loan Star Christmas edition) says that one-hour volunteering ringing bells helps put food on the table for 13 people.  Sunshine had 38 (2 couples did two shifts) people volunteer one hour each this year and using this measure, would feed 572 people.

 

We also had candy donations from some of our ringers and that was used to great effect.

 

Big thanks from the Salvation Army and me too.  It is heartening to see the effort and willingness of our residents.

 

Now I’m asking for someone younger who is willing to take over my duties of organizing this?  I just turned 87 and have done this for a long time.  I am leaving this year and will turn it over to a willing person.

2019-11-20: Bell Ringers (Backups Needed) - 

Thanks to everyone who signed up to "Ring the Bells" for the Salvation at WalMart the day after Thanksgiving. We have all of the timeslots filled - BUT - would like to have some backups on call in case anyone on the sheet is not able to make it at their appointed time.

If you haven't received the scheduling sheet so you know your time/door and who is before & after you, please contact either Lorraine Lewis or Arv Russell. Also contact either of them if you could be a backup on call.

Thanks again.     Lorraine Lewis/Arv Russell

2019-11-16: Bell Ringers needed - 

Sunshine has volunteered to Support the Salvation Army for many years in bringing hope and support to the disadvantaged in our community. And we are doing it again this year.

We need some more volunteers to ring bells. We ring at the Walmart in Harlingen on November 29th (the Friday after Thanksgiving). We do one-hour shifts and need two people each at both the north and south doors. It is a time of joy as families and kids are in a holiday spirit.

Please help if you can be a part of this worthwhile project by signing up on the Scheduling Sheet that is currently posted in the Library.

Call Arv Russell 956 357 7302 or Lorraine Lewis 956 244 2094 if you have any questions.

Thanks
