Garden City Police Dept and N. Ada Cty Fire & Rescue with Mrs. Meridian

New email from Mrs. Meridian Erika Wonacott
Yesterday, my family and I took part in the 13th Annual Christmas Gift Giving to those families in need in Garden City. We took truck loads of food, presents and furniture to 10 families in Garden City who otherwise wouldn't have been able to provide for their families. The Garden City Police Department and the North Ada County Fire & Rescue took police cruisers and fire engines with lights and sirens to deliver the presents. They were also able to pay over $1300 in utilities for those families who otherwise wouldn't have had electricity this Christmas. This is the second year our family has participated and it is quite the experience. Here are a couple of pictures of me with my daughters, one with Santa, a picture of me with my husband Tim and lastly one of a group of the volunteers. Hope ya'll have a very Merry Christmas and I look forward to seeing you very soon!

Ridgewind Retirement Home - Mrs. Eastern Idaho

Just got these photos and email from Mrs. Eastern Idaho
We wrapped up our holiday fun today at the Ridgewind Retirement home in Chubbuck. One of my voice students, Nettie Jo joined me along with my kids to sing and visit with the residents. Nettie did a beautiful job singing Jingle Bells. We also got to visit with some of the the residents pets! This was quite the treat for the kids. One sweet man requested we take a picture with his dog Gracie. We hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Boise Rescue Mission - Mrs. Boise and Mrs. Eagle

Got this email today from Mrs. Boise Sondra La Voie

Over the weekend I swayed Amy Mrs. Eagle to rise and shine early (with a cup of coffee) on Saturday the 19th to help me deliver two large trucks full of homemade desserts. The Boise Rescue Mission received 30 desserts delivered by Mrs. Boise and Mrs. Eagle. It was great to be able to help make the Mission’s Christmas banquet a success and put a smile on so many people’s faces in our community.

Merry Christmas!
Mrs. Boise,

Bonaventure Retirement Home in Idaho Falls

I received this email from Natasha Mrs. Eastern Idaho, here is what she had to say:

Ellon Mrs. Rexburg and I went to the Bonaventure Retirement home in Idaho Falls Saturda. Ellon, her friend Melanie, and I shared a few Christmas songs. Then our kids won them over with a couple songs of their own. I love visiting with those that have had years of experience. We asked about some of their Christmas traditions and a sweet women shared a fun one from her childhood. She said every Christmas her dad would dissapear to go milk the cow in the barn and while he was gone Santa would come and they had to sing for him. Santa would leave and then her Dad would return and they would tell him what he missed out on. It was very cute. We had a great time and the sweet little ladies we met were great!

Middleton Holiday Parade

Middleton Cheerleaders with Mrs. Middleton Tammy Nichols

Hey Mandi,

Here are some pictures from the Middleton parade which was held a few hours after the Meridian parade. I rode on top of our Suburban which was fun! The kidos threw candy canes out the windows to the kids and I did my waving and Merry Christmasing from the top. It was cold but the heaters in the Suburban kept my feet and legs warm! We had a great turn out despite the cold and everyone seemed to have had a good time. All in all it was a fun afternoon especially having my family there with me!
