December Ashford Hall meetup

Dear RAK members:
It's hard to believe that yet another year is about to roll over on life's odometer, but so it is. Our Ashford Hall visit approaches and we need bingo prizes as always.
As you may know, however, we have a tradition of making Ashford Hall's December meetup extra special for the seniors, with visits to (and gifts for) every resident and lots of holiday cheer. That takes a LOT of volunteers! Besides our usual bingo, Dave and the Darlings will be entertaining with Christmas carols and if last year is any indication, some of the volunteers will be sporting antlers just for the occasion (incriminating photos here:­. Oh (rein)deer! Well, that's what happens when you don't bribe the photographer). So many females with antlers, all claiming to be "Vixen"!
So anyway, you're wondering, 'How can I help?' I'm glad you asked.
We have a Happy Hour coming up Tuesday December 1 (yes, next week) where you can donate a fiver and/or gifts for the residents, then get liquored up in the name of a good cause at Duke's in Bedford. C'mon, you will have survived Black Friday by then!
Check with Don if you want to help haul the swag over the Ashford Hall for Sunday December 7. That day, volunteers who wish can start arriving around 12:00 to make a boatload o' gift bags the residents. Please indicate this in your RSVP...probably 15 or 20 volunteers would be good for this and then we'll be out of space.
Then the rest of the volunteers can arrive at 1:00. We'll have introductions as usual around 1:15, start delivering gifts, start bingo in the atrium at 2:00, leave after the group photo around 3:15, and those who wish can head to Danals for lupper. It's just a 4 minute drive...
If you can't attend happy hour or donate, remember that your presence is a great gift to the seniors. This month especially, we need lots of help delivering the bags and visiting with our friends at Ashford Hall. But if you can't join us, check the calendar for the homeless at the Hyatt on the 24th and the New Years' Eve Gala.
RAK would like to thank you for all you do and wishes you and yours the best during this holiday season!
Dave, AO for RAK
