Project Christmas Needs Volunteers

PROJECT CHRISTMAS WEEK IS ALMOST HERE! I have ordered food and gifts for approximately 100 of our less fortunate families in the Delta area. Now I NEED HELP!!!

Some folks have already called in to help in various areas. But here are the places that I still need quite a bit of help:
- 2 or 3 strong people (men or women) to pick up food from the IGA on Friday, Dec 17, morning before 10 am and take it to the Community Center.
- 2 or 3 strong people to pick up food from the commissary, too.
- a couple of strong folks and a heated truck or van to pick up potatoes at Brasier's Farm (those taters need to stay warm).
- a couple of youth groups or adult groups for Wrap and Ribbon night (Wednesday), Dec 15,  from 6-9pm. This is actually loads of fun!
- a couple of "checkers" on Saturday, Dec 18, morning distribution. A hand-truck or two is helpful here as well.
- and of course, a few folks with cars to help deliver these wonderfully packed boxes!

Please call me if you can do any of these jobs, so that I won't continue to fret about the unfilled positions. 895-5532.

Project Christmas will be taking referrals for families through Dec 12. Please call one of our local churches to refer someone for a Christmas Box.

My thanks to the community for their continued joyous support of Project Christmas. It is truly something Delta should be proud of.

Merry Project Christmas, Fran Hallgren

Deborah and Jim

Deborah McPeek and Jim Snyder were married August 15, 2004, in Sterling, Alaska, at Ministry of Living Stones with Vicki Walber officiating. Linda Reed of Delta Junction was Deborah’s matron of honor, and Mike Sullivan of Renton,  Washington, stood as Jim’s best man. Sirsha McPeek, the bride’s granddaughter and daughter of Kristofer and Chrischal Alfonsi,  adorned the aisle way with ivory rose pedals as Gramma’s flower girl. Melody Reed of Wasilla played for the bride “Morning Has Broken” as she walked down the aisle. Lisa Stossmeister of Delta Junction captured every moment with her camera to record their ceremony and reception. The bride wore an ivory Spencer Alexis dress with jacket and held a spray of bridal white roses. Her matron of honor wore a peach dress and held a bridal white rose wrap. The groom and his best man wore traditional black tuxedoes.

The bride was surprised when her sister, Donna Burdette of Dickenson, Texas, flew into Anchorage the Thursday before the wedding. This was a special addition to the day.
Following the reception at the Sterling Senior Center, the bride and groom remained in Soldotna and on the following Tuesday arrived in Delta for a visit with friends and family. New Hope Community Church gave the couple a most beautiful and heartfelt reception on Thursday evening.  Jim and Deborah are presently residing in Anchorage and hoping to someday return to the rural life.  Photo Courtesy Deborah (McPeek) Snyder

Sea lions
This shot was taken while on a halibut trip with
Charlie Atwell and my daughter Rachel last August. We were on Charlie's boat in Prince William Sound while we watched a group of about a hundred sea lions cavort for over an hour before Charlie insisted we go land some halibut. Shortly afterward Rachel out fished both Charlie and I landing her first ever "butt" weighing about sixty pounds!

Statistics for 2004 Project Christmas

* We have been given the names of 86 families who are in need of Project Christmas food boxes.
* The volunteers (thanks to Web and Wind pleas) have been turning out nicely...all areas covered this year (so far). Woohoo!
* $3824 has been collected so far through various donations and the Be A Star program.
* We need at least $2000 more to cover the cost of all the food and gifts.

With all the new prosperity in town, I thought this might be a banner year for donations; but that has not been the case. It is incredibly short this year.

That also surprises me, because it is such a blessing to give. If you could see the faces of the kids and even the parents, or the shut-ins that we deliver boxes to, you would understand how much Project Christmas is needed still in Delta.

So I'm putting the word out one more time: Please Give. It matters very much.

P.S. The mitten tree is sorely lacking those beautiful hand-knitted hats, scarves, mittens, etc. All you knitters: Got a hat or two to put up there? We'll be collecting them on Friday. We'll be accepting monetary donations until Christmas Eve (or New Year's Eve if need be).

Thanks to all who have already put in your support through volunteering or $$$ (and to those who are still working on it). God bless each and every one of you. This is a community project, and it can't be done without you.

Ruffed grouse
To the best of my knowledge, we do not have pear trees in Delta, so the best we can do for our 12 days of Christmas is a partridge in an aspen tree. This partridge is a ruffed grouse. The Delta Christmas Bird Count will be Sat. December 18. Contact Steve DuBois if you are interested
in participating. Photo Courtesy Steve DuBois

Black bear
Barb took this picture from their kitchen window in August while company was visiting . It was about 4:30 PM and the black bear had a leather collar with what appeared to be a battery pouch attached under his neck. He also has a red tag in each ear. He was looking in the kitchen window and seemed to be asking..."is it soup yet?" A 12 gauge "cracker" shell helped him on his way.
