About a month ago, I read on someone's blog or a guild website (can't remember where) about a guild making holiday placemats for the Meals on Wheels program. I contacted our local office and asked if they would be interested in distributing placemats for the holidays. They were thrilled and I challenged guild members to make a placemat. A purchased placemat could be brought if time was a factor since they had only a month. I had no idea what the response would be and am so happy to report that at last nights meeting a total of 83 placemats were brought in. WOW, I am just amazed.
So, I got to work this morning and laid them all out to take a photo and here you go:
I loaded them up in my car and off I went to deliver them. I got to the building that I thought was Meals on Wheels, but the name on the building was Midland Meals - Lafayette Kitchen. Oh well, I thought, this must be the place. I took them inside and told the receptionist who I was and that I had talked with someone about a month ago. She went in search of who I might have talked to. The president and several others came out to see them and they oohed and aahed, but couldn't figure out who I talked to. Finally we discovered that they are a completely different organization from Meals on Wheels. They do the same thing, but provide meals to a much larger area. The president gave me his business card and asked for us to provide THEM with placemats next year. So, off to Meals on Wheels I went and the receptionist there knew exactly who I was and was so happy to see how many placemats we provided.
Good Job Common Threads Guild Members!
