Minions Christmas Fund

FROM JEFF: THis shows what we did in 2016

Hey! It's that time of year again. I am totally willing to spend a day shopping when I come to Canandaigua in December, and to organize and take photos, and then deliver the goods. MamaLoca can handle securing a wish list or two from our social service contact, and collecting cash donations via paypal. Is the forum wanting to support this endeavor again this year? If so, we need to kick off this campaign!

Jeff, I sent you a DM via Facebook.

We should start thinking about our Christmas get together also. It should be planned around Holly's ability to attend.

Aw, thanks MB! I will be down the weekend before Christmas - Thursday through Sunday (leaving Sunday morning). I have a lot of parties and events to attend, as well as schlepping my kids between their birthfamilies and seeing their dad. Friday night would probably work best, as Friday is already broken out to be my Minion shopping day!

Chris and I will plan on also being there as well. It will be nice seeing many of the old gang again. It's kind of nice doing this every so often and seeing many of you MINIONS again. .

This is a great start everyone, but we are going to need to double this donation amount to have any hope of making this wish list fully completed. The snow boots really eat into the total, and I am not willing to NOT fund those first!

Please consider donating - only $25 a person will make a HUGE difference, or even $10!
