CHRISTMAS TREES FOR NICKELSVILLE

    Are there any kind hearted friends out there who might like to see Nickelsville add alittle Christmas cheer to their life and area? I'm saying 2 trees because of there being an east and west section to the area. We managed one last year and they were so happy. Of course there will be a need for simple decorations. JoB and I did a hot cocoa and cookies decorating party for them last year. Anyone interested for this time? I can assure you that most there would be so appreciative of any Christmas spirit sent their way. I would be so happy to do it all myself but that is totally impossible.

    That's a good start. Only problem is I don't drive-- so hope someone can take care of this. I can only suggest it. I have a time just finding a volunteer to take me with lunch every Saturday.If I can't find a driver now and then I'll have to quit and don't really want to. As it is I need someone for this Saturday.

    I have a vehicle capable of carrying a Christmas tree or 2, provided they weren't coming from too far away.

    Is it possible a lot might donate? Thanks for your offer to help.

  6. Some of the lots are already giving to charity - Holy Rosary, Holy Family, Son In Law. Not sure about the policies of the business-run lots but they are (in this area):
    Junction True-Value
    Home Depot
    both Rite-Aids
    West Seattle Nursery
    Tony's
    McLendon

    I can help bring some trees too and might have some decorations. How can we get into contact with you?

    I live in an apartment building, no place to hold them so will have to go right to Nickelsville.

    They'll make stands, I'm sure. Someone did last year. I go there with lunch Saturday and can find out if they have anything to decorate left from last year. Can catch me at bjhallt at hotmail. com.

    Betty do you still need a ride to Nickelsville on Saturday?

    I have some Duck ornaments that can be donated to the tree. I got them a couple of years ago from Duckitude at the West Seattle Duck Reserve that I won in a raffle.

    Do they have power for lights? If so I have some old lights I can donate as well as $$ for a tree.
    Email me or post on here and I will drop off to you Betty (rockergirl5678@yahoo.com)- also a list of kids would be good so we can gift them things they might need or enjoy. Thanks for all you do and for bringing the spirit to Nickelsville every week!

    Yes I do need a ride for Saturday for a 12:30 pickup where I live. Please email me bjhallt at hotmail dot com and we can exchange phone numbers. You can take whatever you have. I'm taking a large soup pot,garlic bread, coffee container, hot cocoa, brownies & box of newspapers for the fires. Also a large plastic tote with my supplies. So you have an idea how much to take. Contact me right away as by Wednesday I'll be "shouting out" for help on here.
    Thank you so much.

    Last year we donated a Shell gas card so they were able to have lights for little while after dark.

    If someone of you takes a tree to them please let me know here.

    I can do the pickup/drop off Saturday, if that works for everyone - maybe some sort of something in conjunction with lunch?

    Thanks and can you take the wood Jeff offered too?

    Charla is picking me up at 12:30 and I try to do lunch at 1:00PM. Maybe see you there?

    I'm wondering if people will just spur-of-the-moment drop off trees. If that should happen, will find someone who needs one I guess.

    I don't have anything to haul the wood with - I have an SUV that will nicely fit the tree on top, but not any wood.

  26. Deb,
    No problem with the wood, we'll either give you a few bundles, or we'll just stack some inside...it's nice and dry! Jeff

    I was there for a few minutes a little earlier today and was going to leave some ornaments but wasn't sure if I should. I will attempt to stop by tomorrow either on my way to of from Costco and drop off the ornaments and hooks.

    Hi Betty. I dropped off a small tree that has some battery operated lights and ornaments. Hope it helps. Also a cat carrier and covered litter box.

    The tree made it there, safe and sound. Also a few bundles of firewood.

    Thanks Jeff!!!

    It was raining so much when I was there with lunch that I don't think anybody was very concerned about anything other than eating and trying to keep warm. Looks like they're on their own for the decorating this time.

    Thanks for your help. Thanks to anybody who tried.

    I'm afraid they'll be more concerned with trying to keep warm with the cold air coming out of Alaska and possible snow-rain mix coming. The young lady who helped me serve lunch was shivering, felt so bad for her. I suggested hot food might help some.
