    If you are on Facebook, you should be able to see this short video of our local neighborhood president volunteering at the Greater Chicago Food Depository... the beneficiary of our annual food drive. Check it out; it made me feel even better about this project, and I was already pretty excited to begin with!

    Since there is now a wait list, if anyone finds that they cannot make it, we have 2 people (bluepig & guest), to whom tickets could presently be transferred.

    Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving! :)

    We now have 3 people on our wait list, so if you've purchased tickets and your plans have changed, there are folks who would probably like to buy your tickets. You can PM them directly or post on this thread. Please, just let us know if you're transferring tickets so we can properly maintain the guest list. And, it would be most considerate if the wait-listers were contacted in the order in which they're listed.

    Despite that I will again have to try sailing through Ron's paypal arrangement, I would prefer to go on the wait list.

    Just finished my 3rd (or 4th)
    Marathon session of work
    And this years creation is complete.
    I am skeptical about whether it will arrive intact as I may have been overly ambitious...
    We will see.

    I'd like you all to have the opportunity to see it that way.
    Here is a small pic, plus the link to my FB Gingerbread album.
    You do NOT need to log in or be a FB member to see these.
    Enjoy and good luck.

    Just a quick reminder... if you can donate either some shelf-stable food items or a few dollars, every little bit will help one of our Chicago neighbors have a warmer holiday season. All donations will benefit the Greater Chicago Good Depository. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity!

    I donated this morning, FYI www.gcfd.org has a match going on so a gift of $50 becomes $100, $200 becomes $400, etc.
    I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be.

    It looks like the double donation thing goes through Dec. 31, so tonight's donations will qualify as well!

    Thanks for pointing this out!
