Earth Angel correspondents, bakers wanted

Each year at this time, Granny and her Earth Angels begin getting ready for the holiday season by gathering names and toys for children of families in need.

In addition, a few years ago, Granny's Mailbags were established to gather cards and letters filled with loving thoughts, prayers, and holiday wishes for our deployed soldiers abroad, along with our hopes of their safe return.

So this year, when you are writing to friends and family, please take an extra moment and write a card or letter for a soldier this Christmas, and then deposit it into one of Granny's Mailbags at any drop site location. No postage is required.

With your contribution, military personnel will know that we, here at home, haven't forgotten them after all. Deadline for all correspondence is Dec. 1.

I am also looking for some bakers. Santa, Rudolph and Earth Angel volunteers will need some cookies or baked goods for energy food for the days of Dec. 21-25. When making your holiday goodies, kindly remember us by baking a few extra cookies.

Baked goods can be dropped off at the Mount Morris Senior Center starting after 9 a.m. Dec. 21. Thank you, and God bless.

We will also need a few backup cooks to prepare a full holiday meal for a family with special circumstances, if needed. Please let me know whether you would be able to help out.
