Thanks to everyone who came out for the Drive-By-Visits. Our first visit was on January 9th, when we visited 7 houses with 4 cars and 10 people on a very cold morning. On February 27th, we had 7 cars and 16 people. The visits and snacks were well received. Looking forward to our next visit this month!
We are collecting for My Coins Count. Get your coins to kids who participate in children's stories, and we'll figure out how to record them making noise on the coin contraption in my backyard.
