CHEERS to Discovery Baptist Church for another year of portraying the village of Bethlehem so realistically. What a lovely free gift to our community. It was truly amazing!
CHEERS to the beautiful singing by the kids at the tree lighting event in downtown Gig Harbor. And CHEERS to the people who see a menorah or a manger display and know what they represent.
CHEERS to the wonderful women of Soroptimist International of Gig Harbor. Their hard work, giving spirit and sincere camaraderie continue to benefit so many in our community.
CHEERS to the Fox Island Yacht Club for making the club available to the Babson family for a gathering following the loss of Tom Babson and their daughter, Alice, in a house fire. The club not only cooked and provided food for the large gathering but also laundered clothing donations, gave a sizeable donation of gift cards, meals, clothing and miscellaneous items.
CHEERS to Fox Island Yacht Club members Dave and Lois Holsinger for opening their home to June Babson and their surviving children for a comforting place to live during this very difficult and sorrowful time.
CHEERS to Uptown Galaxy Theaters, the Gig Harbor Film Festival and the numerous businesses that sponsored and supported the student filmmakers of the Gig Harbor campus of Tacoma Community College. They made it possible for students to see their films on the big screen.
CHEERS. While dining with our favorite family at Applebee’s, a lovely couple stopped by our table, and the gentleman complimented our young teen. He asked her age and her favorite store. Then he handed her a $20 bill and quickly left. She was thrilled, and the rest of us were so touched by their kindness and generosity. This truly shows the spirit of Christmas. He must have been Santa Claus in street clothes!
