Lorrie's House Holiday Programs
This last month certainly went by quickly, but it was filled with Christmas fun and joy. We began the month with the Sheriff’s “Gift of Love” Party. Our clients, both young and old, had an amazing time. Everywhere they turned they were greeted with love and Christmas cheer. We all returned home full of great food and the spirit of the season. A huge thank you to Jana, Tiffany and our Citizen’s Patrol, who make this happen every year.
Our mothers were then able to go to the “Santa Shop” at our Outreach Center. There they could each pick out gifts for their children and wrap them. These were then set aside to be under our tree on Christmas morning.
If the season wasn’t warm and lovely enough, Acosta Firewood donated wood to our house. We look forward to many toasty and cozy fires soon.
Later in the week, our clients went to the Big Bear Disposal Party at the Old Country Inn. What a wonderful party this was! Maria, the owner of Old Country Inn, made us feel so welcome, and Big Bear Disposal was a great host as always. Lunch was amazing and Santa and Mrs. Claus gave lovely gifts to our clients and their children. Our youngest client set a record for Santa excitement. It was terrific.
Finally, just before Christmas, the Women of the Moose presented our clients and their children with gifts. The gifts were amazing and appeared under our Christmas Tree on Christmas morning. The gifts were selected with such love and received with immense gratitude.
Thank you all for such a lovely holiday.
