I just read this challenging quote by Max Lucado:
If today were your last, would you do what you’re doing? Or would you love more, give more, forgive more? Then do so! Forgive and give as if it were your last opportunity. Love like there’s no tomorrow and if tomorrow comes, love again!
Thank you for loving our kids through your prayers and cards, giving to our kids through your contributions and gifts, and forgiving them when they neglect to be thankful. I have been trying to get them to write THANK YOU’s for your generous Christmas gifts but I just haven’t been able to connect with some of them. So to you who didn’t receive a THANK YOU I apologize and appreciate your understanding. Please know that you made your child and his/her family very HAPPY this holiday.
Thanks to several of you for emailing me about the movie, HIDDEN FIGURES. I immediately arranged a fieldtrip to the Frankfort cinema and took nine KC girls to see this amazing film about three African American women who were crucial to NASA’s space program. One girl said as we were leaving the theatre, “That’s a keeper. I want to buy that on DVD when it comes out so I can watch it whenever I want!” Hopefully it will continue to inspire these girls as they consider their own career paths.
Chefs R Us is back on track (every Friday) thanks to Marian Hayden’s incredible team of helpers. Last Friday, Kay Harrod surprised the children with a Super Bowl Party. The kids were ecstatic! Thanks to all of these volunteers.
Our Program Coordinator, Natalee Cleveland, gave birth in January to a precious little boy. She will be on maternity leave for six weeks. Meanwhile we have hired LaToya Mapp to help Gerald Norphlett and Ti’Ara Carothers with daily programming and care. We have several new volunteers from KY STATE who are providing a variety of programs. We also have a math tutor, Erin Chavez, who volunteers several times a week. Homework help and reading remain our main goals!
A SHOUT OUT to Margaret Townsley, Ernie Lewis, and South Presbyterian Church for providing the KC with a new kitchen floor. It looks fantastic!
As some of you know, our book keeping duties have changed hands several times last year. We now have a solid system in place. Because of this change, I need to ask you to send your angel checks to my home address. Otherwise they will become part of the Kings Center budget. Please make your check out to the City of Angels and mail it to Kay Scott, 712 Winterhaven Lane, Frankfort, KY 40601. I will then deposit it straight into the City of Angels account. I will try to remind you of this every month. Thanks again for your support.
