"Letter from the President"
(Fall 2018)

Dear Friends,

Wow, I cannot believe that Fall is here already, where did the summer go? You know what this means, we are busy getting ready for the holidays! Before you know it, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here along with our Special Santas.

If you are one of my regular volunteers and you have not signed up yet for volunteer hours for October, November and December, please do so quickly as they are filling up. New volunteers will begin after the new year in 2019.

The holiday sign-ups began this past Saturday and will continue every Tuesday and Saturday from 11:15am-12.
This year the Thanksgiving deadline for sign ups is Saturday November 3rd.
The deadline for the Special Santa is Saturday November 10th.
AND THE DEADLINE for the Christmas dinner is Saturday December 1st.

Those of you who like to become one of our Special Santas you will hear from me roughly November 11th or 12th.

If you know someone who needs our assistance for any of these holiday special programs AND they are an Irondequoit Resident, have them call 336-9107 for more info. (it is on our machine)

Thank you so much to everyone who volunteered this summer at our Irondequoit Community Cupboard Garden at the Vineyard CHurch-it produced over 600 pounds of produce and we have been so delighted to see the amazing veggies and fruit that it produced. WE had our first ever watermelon this year!

Also, thank you so much to Eagle Scout Ethan Tracey, his parents and Troop #154 and Irondequoit United Church of Christ for their hard work and dedication to their community and to ICC. Their garden provided over 135 pounds of fresh produce (especially cherry tomatoes!)

In addition to these amazing groups, thank you so much to Irondequoit Lawn and Landscape for their extreme generosity in taking care of the yard again for the 2018 year; we are so appreciative!

Thank you also to those of you who have made food and taxable donations to the Ridge Culver Fire Dept, the Irondequoit Library, the Irondequoit Town Hall and Pinegrove Senior Center. 1, 281 pounds of food has been donated there over the past few months!
