Thanks for making holiday projects successful

As a representative of both the Millstone Township Hospital Auxiliary and the Millstone Township Women’s Organization, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone in Millstone for their support for our holiday projects.

Many of you helped to make the auxiliary poinsettia sale, proceeds of which went toward CentraState Medical Center’s new Radiation Therapy Center, a huge success. Of course, we could not do this without our wonderful local grower who supplies us with such a great product every year. Also, this year we had a large new customer, the staff of Freehold Hyundai. Thanks so much.

As for the Millstone Township Women’s Organization, a special thanks to our members, who during the last six weeks have contributed toward food baskets and a "wish tree" for Millstone residents, as well as to those who participated in our annual caroling at the M&M Rest Home in Perrineville, and our Elementary School letter exchange.

The following is a shorthand method for me to thank everyone anonymously — but you know who you are, and if you fall into more than one category, good for you. The list is in no particular order: the administrative lady; all the gift ladies; the poinsettia ladies; the first-aid lady; the lady who moved away; the gift-tag kids; the 50-book lady; the toy ladies; the meal makers; the big Mickey and Minnie donors; the Avon lady; the pet sitter; the turkey man and ladies; B.C.; the helpful child; the deep-freeze folks; the cash ladies; the scavenger kids; the ham man; the wrapping ladies; the spa masseuse; the V.H. gift givers; the calligrapher; the family-taking ladies; Santa and his joyous chorus; the Cub Scout families; the goody-bag maker; the thrift-shop ladies; the stacking, sorting and drop-off ladies; the calendar and card ladies; the accordion player; the food donors; the church lady; and the potato lady.

The generosity and thoughtfulness of the community is certainly appreciated. I wish all of you a healthy and happy new year.
