Happy Thanksgiving! This is
the time of year when we ponder what we are grateful for and count our
blessings.As I am preparing for my big
feast, I am very blessed and grateful for all of you; for the friends that I
have made through the club; for the opportunities to serve you and others in
our community; for the ability to hear our guests tell their stories and needs.
I am also thankful for the interesting places we visited together and the
opportunities to get to know the community better.Joining the club five years ago (with my
sister beside me), we had so much fun together in the activity groups; in fact,
between the two of us, I think we hit every group! I really don’t know who or
where I would be now if it weren’t for the Hollis Woman’s Club.This club gave me a sense of belonging in the
community. I am thankful to you for including us and making us feel special and
needed. I hope I’ve taken that care and concern and passed it back to you.Each one of us is a valued member; we are
the many parts that make it whole.Thank
you for joining the Hollis Women’s Club and making it special.
Thank you to all the ladies that helped Ginny Brooks put together
the Pot Luck on Saturday the 8th.Noreen Polus did a fabulous job arranging our entertainment for the
evening.The Hollis Brookline Honors
Jazz Band did a fantastic job. They really got the groove on and we had so much
fun, some even danced!
Jeanne Cleveland and her troop made the Lawrence Barn an indoor
Yard Sale raising over $870.00 in one Saturday morning. Thank you all who
