Hello & Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Just wanted to send out a reminder about our Christmas party and Christmas family.
Our party is scheduled for Sunday December 11th, 4pm till 7pm at Visually Impaired Preschool Services (VIPS), 1906 Goldsmith Lane. We will be having a family style pot luck dinner, complete with ham and all the fixins! Santa Claus will be joining us, so if you are bringing you little ones and would like for them to receive a gift from Santa all you need to do is. Purchase your child a gift, wrap it, mark it with the child’s name and then give it to a GL board member when you arrive. We’ll also be doing the adult gift exchange. If you would like to participate in this all you need to do is. Purchase a gender specific gift, wrap it, mark it male or female and then give it to a GL board member when you arrive.
We encourage you to invite family and friends to share in the holiday spirit with us. Speaking of holiday spirit, what better way to get in the spirit then to help out a family in need.
Once again this year our chapter has adopted a family for Christmas. I have attached the wish list below. If you would like to purchase anything off this list, please touch base with me so I can make sure items are not being duplicated. If you’d rather, a monetary donation is great too. You can bring the gifts the day of the Christmas party and drop them off, make sure to have them wrapped and marked with the name.
If you have any questions, please contact me at, njp@insightbb.com

We look forward to seeing you all on December 11th!
Happy Holidays!

Christmas Family Wish List-
Autumn is a sweet and lively little 4-year-old girl. She is in a preschool classroom, and has really started to blossom! Autumn has a diagnosis of DeGrouchy Syndrome. This is a chromosome deletion syndrome. Autumn has different issues due to the syndrome, but she is learning many new things and is quickly becoming more and more independent. Autumn received hearing aids in August. She has some vision issues as well, but she is able to use her vision purposefully.
Autumn’s mother is able to stay at home with the children. Dad is a barber. Autumn has 3 siblings, and there is another baby on the way. Assistance with the family’s wish list during the holidays would certainly be helpful and appreciated!
