Concert:59.5 Minutes w/Brett (Mar 25, 2023)

Newsletter 2023-02:  Concert: 59 ½ Minutes w/Brett - 

Please come join me while I sing some of nearly sixty songs written and recorded by me in Nashville. There will also be some songs sung by me from a few other artists . People like to know the meaning behind the song, or I am asked how I came up with the idea. So, before I sing an original, I will tell the audience how I came up with it. I will be singing and playing guitar with backup harmonies. 


I was on the radio for two years being promoted in country music. This is an opportunity for me to showcase one more time my musical past before I find myself unable to do it any longer.

Toys for Tots (Dec 2022)  COMPLETE 

Sent 2022-11-30: HPD - Marines 2022 TOYS for TOTS 501 C3 - 

Dear Friends - 

Toys for Tots date of distribution for Harlingen is 16 December 2022. Some of the HPD Officers will be by to pick up this box tomorrow and leave another in its place. There are some gifts still to be wrapped - I did a bunch earlier. -  Maybe one of the Sunshine elves can wrap one or two. Thanks - reminder to please put the age and Boy / Girl on the bottom for distribution purposes.  


Since the 1940's, the USMC program has assisted families nationwide who are struggling financially.  The mission is to provide a tangible sign of hope for the disadvantaged children at Christmas.


Wrapping the gifts with BOY / GIRL and age really speeds up the process.  Thanks again. Makes the project easier for the PD.


THANK YOU for Getting Involved and Making a Difference.  

God Bless you and God Bless the USA

THANKS for your generosity with Toys For Tots.  You are wonderful! and appreciated.
We could have a quick wrapping party in the Library soon.
I will be checking with Harlingen Police on their pickup day.  Stay tuned.

Sent 2022-11-11:  TOYS FOR TOTS - 

Dear Friends,
We briefly spoke about this at Woman’s Club the other day – so as a reminder:
Our Harlingen Police dropped off a TOYS FOR TOTS box.  It is in the Library.
Toys For Tots – is the premier community action program sending a message of hope through the gift of a new toy to help bring the joy of Christmas to the less fortunate children.
The mission is to collect new toys each year and distribute these toys as Christmas gifts to these children in our community.  The Harlingen Police Department becomes familiar with these families, currently is collecting toys and hereby requests if anyone at Sunshine can please donate a gift ($10.00 or so). 
They (HPD) are waiving the “unwrapped” part since the Harlingen PD is most familiar with us thru NW & CERT and wrapping would be handy – just put GIRL/BOY  and  AGE __yrs. on the gift – visibly on the bottom. 
The Officers will pick up the boxes in a few weeks.  THANK YOU
