Hopefully, many of you helped in your own way with getting out this month’s vote in the mid-term election. What a relief that’s over! Now we can concentrate on collecting our volunteer hours; rounding up eyeglasses, hearing aids, books-on-tape, and other useful items; and putting a bag together for Sacred Heart Community Service. A year-round need exists for all these items (except the election!) As Thanksgiving season draws near, we in our community can certainly appreciate how fortunate we are personally and that so many organizations, including our chapter, exist to help others.
