Girl Scout Pumpkin Fest
We had a wonderful evening at the annual Girl Scouts
Pumpkin Fest in Honeoye Falls last night (October 12). Parents and kids in costume, treats galore, warm friendly folk all over! Thanks to all who participated and joined in; we hope to make this a regular event for us and really start a spirit of giving a bit early. Thank you, Ethan, for posing with Sgt E.T. Bear!
Next up - getting those Toys for Tots boxes out in the community.
Toys for Tots 2019
It's so hard to believe this is our 8th year of working with local businesses, schools, and individuals in our tri-country school district to make sure all the children (and their families) have a blessed Holiday season, through the national Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Last year - with your generous donations - we collected, and gave out, over 2000 toys! Some big, some small; some stocking stuffers, and some that special item for Christmas, for Hannakkah, and other holiday cultural celebrations. While gifts are not intended to be ALL that children receive, we hope we are able to assist with some gift-giving needs for those struggling at this time of year. This year's event will again be held at the Mendon Community Center, 167 W Main St., Honeoye Falls. The dates are December 17 & 18 from Noon to 9 pm. Parents and care-givers are welcome to 'shop' for 2-3 gifts per child, and should be prepared to show NY State I.D., and give childrens' names, ages, and school district.
