Following in her mother’s footsteps as a community servant, Ann Gomez’s teenage daughter, Marisa, has created a community service project of putting together turn-away packs for the local homeless shelters, to provide a bit of assistance for those who arrive after the shelter may be full. She is still looking to add snack size healthy foods to her packs. Please donate energy bars, jerky, nuts or other light, non-perishable protein foods for this cause! We support the work she is doing. Thanks!
As Spring Fair edges closer, we are looking for the loan of several easy-up canopies to shelter various booths. If you have one to loan, please reply to this email. Thanks!
And thanks to our fair sponsors thus far: LANB, Cuddy & McCarthy (attorneys at law), Play (children’s clothes and toys), Companions Aquatics and Beyond , Dawn’s Tattoos, JC Blinds, Lawrence Facilitation & Planning, Santa Fe Luxury Rental & Studio Succession (landscape design). Wow! If you know of a business that would still like to become a fair sponsor and have their logo included in all print advertising, the provision is $100 financial contribution or $500 in-kind donation, and the deadline to let us know is April 21. Thank you!
