   Christmas in all of our hearts.  I am not sure how to tell everyone in Emmaus Rotary how proud you make your President feel.  This year we ended up supporting 4 families for the Christmas holiday.  The Angel Network with Eileen heading up the charge had us participate in bringing in enough deodorant to make my dog smell nice.  Thank you, Eileen, for getting together with the Interact club youth and everyone else involved in getting the baskets ready for the less fortunate in our community.  So proud of the work we do.
     We helped support an elementary family a senior high family and a PCFLV family with $500 to each family.  The stories of these families is heart wrenching however we all helped make their holidays a little happier.  I hope in the near future we can help the one young women and her family a little happier in the coming months.  She is applying for college in a program that requires special materials to prepare a project for college admission.  I know we can help her and supply the materials she needs to give her the best chance to apply to the college of her choice.  When Cecilia was here from the Pediatric Cancer foundation of the Lehigh Valley, we offered to help one family get things they needed to make life a little easier for them at this most wonderful time of the year.  I enjoy the feeling of helping all of our families and our community.  
     This week we will enjoy the fruits of our high school with the Emmaus High Scool Chorus singing some holiday songs for us to enjoy.  Let them start off the 5 days before Christmas with a little music.  Next week is Christmas.  Enjoy, as your Executive committee will enjoy.  We will not have a Trumpet next week but you will see one New's Year's Day.  Enjoy!!! be careful and have a great time with family and friends.
Yours in Service,
