Well, it's been a whirlwind, as always. First thing to report is that Operation Smile is going to receive , as of now,
I was honestly afraid that we wouldn't even get close to last years total of $6,500.00, but youse guys and gals proved that my fears were unfounded! But to tell youse all the truth, I'd LOVE to DOUBLE last years total. And here's the way: Anyone who hasn't already found a way to contribute to this years fund raiser, PLEASE send a check for just $2.00 to Operation Smile. ONLY two bucks from about 1,300 members would put us WAY, WAY over the top. Just mark your check in the lower right "Cirque 07" and let me know , iffin ya can, that ya sent it. This way we can keep track. In the next two weeks I'll announce the FINAL count. The only thing is, next year I'm gonna be ask'n for MORE!!!
At this figure, $11,300.00, we have put NEW smiles on 45 little faces.
My deepest heartfelt thanks to all a youse so very, very much for your generosity.
And especially to my helper elves; who's assistance was invaluable in pulling this off:
